Daniel O’Donnell made a lot of people very happy this weekend – as he serenaded a group of sick and elderly people in Donegal during lockdown.
The hitmaker’s performance was captured on video, as he blasted out some of his top tunes, to lift the mood.
The singer, 58, arrived to the area in his car, bringing a microphone and speaker along with him, and people can’t cope with his kind gesture.
Many have praised the singer for his kindness, even dubbing him a “national treasure”. Take a look at the response:

Genuinely kind and caring, does a huge amount for charity, constantly goes out of his way for fans and gets to know many of them personally, self-deprecating and funny, all while being publicly ridiculed for years? National treasure. https://t.co/x8cmAis7qH
