San Francisco might be gearing up for this weekend’s sing-along, and that isn’t stopping former Mayor Willie Brown from keeping his vocal cords warm.

The 86-year-old can be seen with a face covering singing Tony Bennett’s famous "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," in front of a masked statue of the legendary crooner outside the Fairmount Hotel.

The song comes as Bennett has invited the Bay Area to join in on a home sing-along of his famous love song to the city this Saturday at 12 p.m.

I am proud to invite the citizens of San Francisco to raise their voices in song. This Saturday, April 25 at 12pm PDT, join as we sing I Left My Heart in San Francisco from our homes. Let's spread the love and strength throughout the bay! #SingOutSF pic.twitter.com/7sYkPfskR2

It’s part of an effort to honor the frontline workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Brown served as San Francisco's mayor from 1996 to 2004.
