Due to the coronavirus pandemic right now, a lot of people are feeling stressed and scared. Thankfully, there are people all over the world doing their part to bring a little bit of joy to others. Two doctors do just that when they sing “Imagine” on their break at the hospital.
A song of hope performed initially by The Beatles, “Imagine” is a song filled with positive lyrics that allows listeners to look towards a positive future. When a couple of doctors from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota sing it on the hospital piano, people were left in awe.
Doctors. Elvis L. Francois and William Robinson are both chief residents in the orthopedic department. Francois sings, and Robinson plays the piano during this calming song. They chose to record the tune to encourage others during this tough time.
Francois said, “Music goes places that medicine can’t go. You can perform the perfect surgery, but that next day, when a patient’s going through rehabilitation, or they’re faced with a difficult diagnosis, music is something that speaks to the spirit.” We couldn’t agree more, doc.

Imagine all the people… —- In life, there are so many things that divide us. Religion, race, politics, social status and many more….But today a global pandemic brings us all together as one. —- Over the next few months our health care system will be tested. Many lives will be lost. Health care providers will be under an incredible amount of stress to save thousands of people.

And the beauty in what we are facing today is that the only way to overcome this pandemic is for us to all come together as one…. —- Nurses, doctors, students, research scientists, politicians, Uber eats drivers, cashiers, factory workers etc…..Getting through this will be hard but one thing is certain…the only way we will get through it is together, as one —- — —- “You might say that I’m a dreamer.
