Neil Diamond ushered in the new year by leading a sing-along unlike any other.
On Sunday, the 76-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer took the stage for FOX’s New Year’s Eve with Steve Harvey: Live From Times Square to give a very special performance of his most iconic hit.
Crooning the memorable lyrics to “Sweet Caroline” — which Diamond first released in 1969 — he encouraged the large crowd to join him in singing.
After preforming a few verses, Diamond told his N.Y.C. audience, “Okay, we’re coming up to the final choruses, take a deep breath and we’re going to do it all together now.”
