Despite being geographically separated amid the global coronavirus pandemic, over a thousand people have come together through song for Couch Choir.

Over 1000 people from 18 countries participated in the project which called for video submissions of themselves singing one of three different harmonies.

The final video of the "artists" singing along to the Carpenters song Close to You, written by Burt Bacharach has been released and it's Australia's version of the Italians singing from their balconies.

"A few days ago we asked the internet to stop misery scrolling for a moment, and to sing with us," the organisers said on Facebook.

"Every submission that we successfully received was manually added to the collective. And then we saw the magic unfold.

"We can't adequately express in words what a gift your videos were to us. Each was like unwrapping a beautiful, personal, virtual hug.

"Thanks for trusting us with your voices, and for sharing your lives with us for a few minutes.

"We really hope the result gives you something to smile about."
