“Stay home,” said Martin, who has an audience, from Almoradi to America; Benijofar to Beijing; Crevillente to Crewe; Dolores to Dundee; El Raso to Egypt.
Martin’s lyrics in the Elvis hit ‘The Wonder of You’, included: Coronavirus gave me constipation. The world in isolation, rub down with sanitation.
“Always wash your hands. I always wear my rubber gloves in everything I do, because of the Wuhan flu,” quipped Martin, who performed from Formentera to France; Guardamar to Germany; Jacarilla to Jerusalem.
From Los Montesinos to London; Murcia to Mumbai; Orihuela to Orlando; Playa Flamenca to Preston; Quesada to Queensland; Rojales to Russia; San Miguel to Stockport; Torrevieja to Turkey and Villamartin to Vienna.
“Coronavirus days will soon be over. I can’t wait until we get back together again. Thanks to the medics and the emergency services.
“The doctors and nurses for fighting the coronavirus. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart,” said Martin.
