The video begins with the Wonder Woman star talking about her "day 6 in self-quarantine," and how the situation had led to her "feeling a bit philosophical" about the global nature of the pandemic.

She adds she was inspired by a viral video from Italy, currently on lockdown owing to the virus, where a man plays 'Imagine' on his trumpet to all the other people quarantined in their homes.

A host of celebrities including Natalie Portman, Mark Ruffalo, James Marsden, Sarah Silverman, Kristen Wiig, and Amy Adams then sing the following verses. The video ends with Gadot singing the closing lines of the song.

Sia, Pedro Pascal, Jamie Dornan, Zoe Kravitz, Eddie Benjamin, Ashley Benson, Lynda Carter, Jimmy Fallon, and Will Ferrel are among others also seen in the video.

Martin was live with his fans for around 30 minutes, performing some of his hits, including 'A Sky Full of Stars' and 'Trouble', and telling interesting stories about the tracks.

Meanwhile, the head of the World Health Organization on Wednesday said the new coronavirus was an "enemy against humanity," as the number of people infected in the pandemic soared past 200,000 worldwide.
