American singer Barbra Streisand sang a song to honor health workers who have been fighting on the frontline amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a recent Instagram post, Streisand shared an emotional music video for the song "You'll Never Walk Alone" from the broadway musical, "Carousel."

The heartwarming video featured several snaps of professional health care workers and other essential workers, such as storekeepers, as they continue to work and battle the ongoing health crisis.

In the opening scenes of the five minutes long clip, Barbra, 78 added a short touching note which read:

"I sang this song almost 20 years ago after 9/11. Today we face another crisis, but I think the words still apply. With love and gratitude, Barbra."

The video came to an end with a call to action that encouraged people to make donations to "Direct Relief," a charity organization that has provided health workers with protective gear since the outbreak of the pandemic.

In her caption, Barbra re-directed people to visit the organization's Instagram page if they wanted to make donations. Although Streisand has strictly adhered to social distancing measures, it hasn't stopped her from seeing and spending time with her family.

Streisand's thoughtful video welcomed reactions from her fans and followers who flooded her comment section. One user wrote:

Earlier in April, Barbra participated in the GLAAD's "Together in Pride: You Are Not Alone" Livestream show, where she urged people to provide support for the LGBTQ community affected by COVID-19.

In her pre-recorded video, Streisand pointed out that making donations to community centers was essential to help LGBTQ kids survive the pandemic.

Although the 77-year-old has strictly adhered to social distancing measures, it hasn't stopped her from seeing and spending time with her family.

Last month, Barbara shared an adorable picture of her stepson holding up a sign that read: "We ❤ YOU GAMMA & GRAMPA." It appears Streisand's family is giving her all the love she could ever need!
