The Royal Melbourne Hospital’s Scrub Choir have released a touching tribute to all healthcare workers who have lost their lives during the coronavirus pandemic.
More than 400 Royal Melbourne Hospital Staff came together to release a touching version of The Pretenders hit I’ll Stand By You.
Some highlights of the video include some RMH Doctors in a string quartet, Nurse Kathy who leads the song in AUSLAN, and many interpreters and nurses sharing their native language.
The Scrub Choir previously came together three months ago to perform a rendition of the Bruno Mars hit ‘Count on Me’.
“We chose this song as we all need to continue to ‘Count on’ each other, we want the community to know we are here for them always, and also to show our support for all people working in healthcare worldwide,” RMH Chief Music Therapist Dr Emma O’Brien OAM said.
The choir aims to bring music therapy and a little joy to Melburnians as they battle the second wave of COVID-19.
