*Earlier this month, nurse Lori Marie Key at St. Mary Mercy in Livonia, Michigan went viral after video of her singing “Amazing Grace” to her fatigued coworkers on the front lines of fighting COVID-19 was shared on social media.
On Monday, she spoke to “Good Morning America” about her viral moment, which continues to inspire her patients and all who watched.
“These last few weeks have been challenging but we just have to remember why we’re here and that is to be here for our patients, especially during this difficult time,” said Key, who also revealed that she was approached at work with a request for her to sing the hymnal. Her chilling version of the notable hymn garnered 660,000 views on “GMA’s” Facebook page, alone.
In addition to treating COVID-19 patients, Key said the hospital tries to promote spiritual healing. “Sometimes I’ll do a bedside prayer with my patients, especially if they request it because right now we need prayer more than ever,” she added.
