The two, who released the new official lyric video for their duet earlier this week, showed their fans their gratitude when Andrea tweeted:

"Thank you fans of the world for your wonderful participation!"

The new video, which comes just a few weeks after Celine and Andrea came together to sing "The Prayer" for Global Citizen's "One World: Together at Home" special, has garnered nearly 200,000 views.

ET Online noted that the heartwarming video began with a message that explained how the pandemic has provided an alternative way of communication amongst people.

Andrea and Celine teamed up with Lady Gaga and the Chinese concert pianist, Lang Lang, as they closed out the influential "One World: Together at Home" concert earlier this month.

It was through that new communication channel that Celine and Andrea could ask their fans to join one another online and sing along to "The Prayer."

After the message, footage soon cut to show dozens of people singing along to the song while holding up different items.

Hello! Magazine reported that while some held up flags that represented their countries of origin, others just wrote out either the song lyrics or things they wanted others to see while watching the clip.

As regards the pair's Global Citizen performance, Today pointed out that Andrea and Celine teamed up with Lady Gaga and the Chinese concert pianist, Lang Lang, as they closed out the influential "One World: Together at Home" concert earlier this month.

Today recalled that Andrea and Celine initially recorded "The Prayer" in two solo versions for the 1998 film "Quest for Camelot." While the "I'm Alive" songstress recorded her version in English, her male counterpart recorded his cover in Italian.

A duet between the two musical powerhouses later appeared on their respective studio albums, "These Are Special Times" and "Sogno."
