This is the moment a profession singer entertains his neighbours from his balcony during COVID-19 lockdown.
Jovica Smiljkovic, from the city of Nis in the south-eastern Serbian district of Nisava, put on the show of his neighbours as they self-isolate in their homes.
He told local media: “My idea was to wake everyone up to how serious the situation is.
“I sing to people from all over the world and tell them to stay home and isolate for a little while longer.
“As I can be heard from all over, I decided to greet my neighbours with a couple of songs from my balcony and encourage them to stay at home, which they happily accepted and appreciated.”

‘Mihajlovic Sanja’ wrote: “Half of Serbia wants to live in your house.”
‘Maja Dragoljubovic’ remarked: “You are a star, congratulations.”
‘Alexandra Kitic’ gushed:”You are a king. We are so proud of you!”
