Drake and Justin Bieber were among a host of high-profile celebrities who appeared on Stronger Together, Tous Ensemble, a Canadian TV event to raise money for charity.

Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, Ryan Reynolds, Will Arnett and Amy Poehler also featured on the special, in which they urged people to donate to Food Banks Canada.

Drake used his appearance to pay tribute to the work of frontline workers during the coronavirus pandemic: “Just to see the morale, the smiles, the high spirits on everyone’s face that I got to encounter in that situation, despite everything going on, it’s inspiring to see people leave their families every day and go to work amid this crisis, as dangerous as it is.”


“Thank you for that,” added the “God’s Plan” rapper.

Bieber, meanwhile, confirmed that he was self-isolating, saying: “We are sending our love and prayers. We are going to get through this together.”

The 90-minute-long event began with a live musical performance from Bublé, Barenaked Ladies and Sofia Reyes of a quarantine-focused song called “Gotta be Patient (Enjoy the Confination)”.

Dion was also among those praising the work of frontline workers, saying: “These people have families and loved ones who they’re worried about. And they still go out to serve us and save us. … Let us take care of each other.”
