For the medical professionals dealing with the overwhelming numbers of coronavirus patients, hearing a New York anthem blaring through their hospital’s public address system is cause for celebration.
It means somewhere in the hospital, a coronavirus patient has been taken off a ventilator or is going home. The classic song is played every time a battle is won.
And Alicia Keys loves it.
A Montefiore Hospital worker took to Twitter Monday to share good news: during the first six hours of his shift, @firstsecndTh3RD heard the song play twice.
Replied Keys, “My heart flows wide open with the love I feel from this!!!!”
