The singer and actress Barbra Streisand gave up on the last Tuesday, his particular tribute to the staff doctor who is in the front line of the fight against the coronavirus with the well-known song You’ll never walk alone (You’ll never walk alone), published in social networks along with a montage with various pictures of health.

It is the same song composed by the duo Richard Rodger and Oscar Hammersteinwho sang at the gala of the Emmy awards in 2001 shortly after the attacks of 11-S, and whose images are interspersed with photographs of the pandemic. “I sang this song nearly 20 years after 11-S. Now we face another crisis, but I think the idea of the song may still apply,” says Streisand in a text in the first few seconds of the audiovisual piece.

While the hopeful anthem playing in the background, you can see images of the medical staff attending to victims of the coronavirus, at times visibly affected, and exhausted. It can also be seen in the video snapshots of other workers of essential services such as messaging services, cashiers of supermarkets and fire, in addition to images of hope, of births in hospitals.
