CHICAGO (WLS) -- Chicago residents are uniting to show their appreciation of those working on the front lines to fight COVID-19 over the weekend.

South Loop neighbors cheered for first responders from the windows of their homes in downtown Chicago Saturday at 8 p.m.

The movement, known as Chicago Unite At Night, coordinates a singalong, followed by a cheer and applause, every night.

"It's just very reflective and it's a little bit of an escape for everyone who's here and doing this all together in unity," said Laarni Livings, who organized the event.
