As musicians around the world continue to rally together during the global pandemic, Michael Bublé and his fellow Canadian stars have teamed up for a star-studded performance in support of frontline workers.

As part of the TV special Stronger Together, Tous Ensemble, a slew of Canada's most talented musical artists came together virtually for a tearjerking joint performance of Bill Withers 1972 soul classic, 'Lean On Me'.

Along with Bublé, the group included Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne, Geddy Lee, Bryan Adams, Sarah MacLachlan, and Buffy Saint-Marie among others.

Now more than ever, the 48-year-old lyrics hold a magical power during these times of crisis.

The emotional video began with a message for the "late, great Bill Withers."

It read: "Thank you for your lyrics and inspiring message. We are grateful to lean on music during our time of need. Your musical legacy lives on through us."

The one-hour TV special aimed to raise vital money for Food Banks Canada, a charity providing funds and support to food banks across the country.
