To all the heroes.
On this Memorial Day, as with every Memorial Day, it’s important to take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices made to keep all of us safe. This year the the global coronavirus pandemic has the holiday feeling a bit more hefty since we are all forced to celebrate a little differently. Regardless, it is a day worth celebrating and what better way to celebrate than a special tribute from the incomparable Cynthia Erivo.
Musicians from the National Symphony Orchestra as well as stars like Erivo, Kelli O’Hara, Renée Fleming, CeCe Winans and Trace Adkins all took part in a special event for PBS called the “National Memorial Concert.” This year’s socially distant version of the celebration paid a special tribute to the healthcare workers on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis. Erivo performed a cover of the Mariah Carey classic “Hero” and it was obviously amazing. Watching the tribute is the perfect way to reflect on exactly why this holiday is so important.
