Just like many other celebrities, Justin Bieber is using his platform to encourage fans to self-isolate as the coronavirus continues to spread.

The Yummy singer shared a video on Instagram on Tuesday of what appears to be a montage of clips of people helping each other out. Whether it's lending your strength to turn over a flipped car, or giving a struggling musician on the street some spare change, the video shows how big and small acts of kindness can go a long way, especially when we're dealing with a pandemic that's incited fear across the globe.

The 26-year-old sings a moving song in the background. It seems to be an unreleased tracks of his own. "When the world’s in a frenzy, we should all come together," he starts. "And as fear takes over, we gotta pray through the weather. Though we don’t know the outcome, we have faith. We don’t got the answers, but we still got hope."

The Changes hitmaker further urged fans to practice social distancing in the caption of his post writing, "Obviously this is a really scary time. I wanted to remind everyone what we can do when we come together. Let's come together by isolating ourselves until we have more answers," he said.

"Our grandparents are counting on us."


According to People, Justin is home in Canada, which just recently closed its borders, with wife and model, Hailey Bieber. The two "plan on socially distancing themselves," a source told the publication. "In Canada, their home is very secluded, and they are able to be out in nature still. They plan on staying in Canada until it's safe for everyone to resume their regular lives."

Well, the two seem to be keeping themselves entertained, with the singer also posting a TikTok dancing with Hailey.
