The song, a recording of Barbra’s performance from the 2001 Emmy Awards, is set to a touching montage of healthcare workers, grocery store employees, delivery drivers and more as they continue to work amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I sang this song almost 20 years ago after 9/11,” reads a message from Barbra at the start of the clip. “Today we face another crisis, but I think the words still apply.”

At the end of the video, the singer-actress encourages everyone to donate to DirectRelief.org, a nonprofit that provides protective gear to healthcare workers fighting COVID-19.
