Sam Roberts Band is bringing some music from his living room to yours.
The Canadian crooner enisted his kids, dubbed the “Isolation Jubleation Sensation”, for a new version of his classic “We’re All In This Together”, the perfect tune amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“From our family to yours, all around the world,” he captioned the clip posted to Facebook. “We’re All In This Together.”
“We want to send this next song out to all of you working on the frontlines,” Roberts said before kicking off the tune. “And to everyone staying home and social distancing, keep it up and we’ll get through this.”
The lyrics share a positive light on the growing pandemic, singing, “We’re all in this together, so keep moving don’t stop, keep moving don’t stop.”
Robert goes solo for the verses, but his three kids, two on violin and one on the piano, join in for the upbeat chorus.
Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
