More than 1,000 people are set to belt out Jon Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer" outside their window Saturday night.

The Facebook event, created by Rebecca Kell and Jenni Spinner, shows more than 4,000 individuals are going with more than 7,000 interested.

Starting exactly at 7 p.m. on Saturday, participants are encouraged to turn on the song and sing as loud as they can from their windows or balconies.

Radio station 97.1 The Drive even changed its music library to play the song as well.

"Social distancing can't keep us from getting together in song. Let's all hang out and sing as one," read the description of the event.

The event takes after a trend that started in Italy where citizens were performing from their balconies as a way to cope with the coronavirus lockdowns.
