Neil Diamond Puts Helpful Twist on “Sweet Caroline” During Coronavirus Outbreak

Since the coronavirus has begun to spread, the internet has seen a variety of celebrities encourage their fans to follow the rules. Musician Neil Diamond decided to put a relevant spin on one of his most famous songs, “Sweet Caroline.”

The video starts with his adorable dog greeting the camera before we see Diamond sat in front of a cozy fireplace. With an acoustic guitar in hand, we can tell that Neil is about to sing us a sweet song to help bring a smile to fans’ faces.

Before he starts strumming his guitar, the musician says, “…I know we’re going through a rough time right now, but I love you, and I think maybe if we sing together, well, we’ll feel just a little bit better.”

Diamond changes some of the lyrics to the pre-chorus to “Hands, washing hands, reaching out, I won’t touch you, don’t touch me.” It’s hard not to sing along to this catchy version of “Sweet Caroline.” Thanks for a dose of positivity, Neil.
