In a statement, Brightman said: “For many of us during lockdown these are reflective and introspective times.

“So I thought viewing a concert chosen from my performing past would be appropriate and bring you back to a special comforting moment in time.

“For me then, it was a pivotal period of transition, after which I experienced 20 years of an incredible life and career journey which I wasn’t expecting.

“Hopefully my performance of many hits and favourite pieces, along with special guests Andrea Bocelli and Andrew Lloyd Webber, will inspire many of you to contribute to one of these fine charities, who are both doing so much for people all over the world at this time.”

Brightman added: “I hope you enjoy and remember it’s still a beautiful world out there and we have so much to look forward to.”

Since lockdown began, Bocelli has taken part in a couple of streamed concert events.

The first saw the Italian tenor sing live from the Duomo di Milano, Milan’s cathedral, on Easter Sunday.

Bocelli had been invited by the City of Milan to give “an uplifting message of love, healing and hope through music”.

The tenor’s solo performance saw him perform Panis Angelicus, Ave Maria, Sancta Maria, Domine Deus and ended with Amazing Grace on the steps of the cathedral.

The 61-year-old then performed remotely with Celine Dion, Lady Gaga and others for the final performance of charity concert One World: Together At Home.

The musicians performed a rendition of a song called The Prayer.

Bocelli stood wearing dark sunglasses and sang without a microphone or headphones insight, which fans in the comments found very impressive.
