If you've only been hearing grim news about the coronavirus and are looking for some fond nostalgia, here's something to lift up your spirits.
The members of popular 90s boy band Backstreet Boys came together to deliver a performance for fans while self-isolating.
The piece was part of Elton John’s star-studded coronavirus benefit concert, which is virtual in nature.
The five-piece boy band sang a rendition of their famous hit “I Want It That Way” — albeit with each member cooped up in their respective homes.
The members recorded themselves, each singing their verses on the track for Elton John’s iHeartRadio Living Room Concert for America, with Carter and Richardson's children also joining in.
The concert was given a fun spin with some funky dance moves by the members.
The band was recently forced to cancel their upcoming tour for their 10th studio album “DNA,” but managed to reunite virtually as part of the benefit concert.
The special benefit saw a number of stars, including Lady Gaga, Billie Eilish and Lizzo, perform and appear via their webcams in aid of charities Feeding America and the First Responders Children’s Foundation.
Backstreet Boys, made up of AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell, taped their appearances from five different locations — including Atlanta, Georgia and Las Vegas, Nevada.
