In this period of social distancing, people are finding fun new ways to keep themselves entertained. A popular global activity that's been bringing people together has been balcony sing-alongs.

In a sweet new video from Montreal resident Frank Jofo, a group of creatives in the apartment above him are seen playing guitar and joyously singing along to Leonard Cohen's 1967 hit, "So Long, Marianne."

Just last week, a group of Spanish musicians performed a heartfelt rendition of Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On" on their balconies amid coronavirus lockdown in Barcelona, Spain. Watch it here.
