Health-care workers have been dubbed heroes in the fight against COVID-19, pulling long shifts and placing themselves at risk of infection while working to save lives.

If that weren't enough, some of them have got musical talent as well, as this recent video from the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra reveals.

It's a cover of the Beatles' "All you Need is Love," sung by Dan Mangan and accompanied in isolation by members of the VSO and a whole roster of musically gifted health-care workers from B.C.'s Lower Mainland — doctors, nurses, paramedics, physiotherapists and staff at seniors' residences.

"It's an absolute honour to have been a part of this project with the VSO," Mangan said via press release. "I had no idea when I recorded my bit, of how emotional the final result would make me."

Watch their performance below. There's a full list of participants at the end of the video.
