Coronavirus isolation: Opera singers go viral after singing 'I Still Call Australia Home' on Sydney Balcony

Nothing brings people together like a sing-along!

Let's be real, times are scary and sitting at home in isolation can get pretty lonely - even if it is an important step for us to take in order to contain coronavirus.

And on the night of March 25, Sydney-based tenor Tomas Dalton and baritone Tom Hamilton tried to keep their Waterloo neighbours entertained by performing a rendition of Peter Alan's "I Still Call Australia Home."

And now the video - which was shot by Ed Hayes at Haysey Productions - has gone viral.

Since it has gone viral, people have commented on how the simple act of kindness is bringing joy to people during trying times.

"You made my week, thanks guys for singing for us here," one person said.

"Thanks for sharing, what a beautiful commiunity we live in," another Tweeted.

"I still call AUSTRALIA home! Singing and surviving in the times of COVID," a third agreed.
