Choir Of Frontline Nurses Sing Inspiring Rendition Of 'Lean On Me' On AGT

This video is the most motivating clip that I have seen in a long time. A choir of frontline nurses sing an inspiring rendition of “Lean on Me.”

When a group of nurses come together to sing in the year 2021, it is more than a song. This America’s Got Talent video begins by telling the story of the Northwell Health Nurse Choir from New York. Each individual is not a professional singer, but rather are everyday heroes caring for patients who have come together to audition.

The video starts out interviewing a few of the lead singers in the choir. Each one of them has a short story of their love for nursing or their journey through COVID. One woman beautifully says, “The hardest part was seeing these patients alone. They couldn’t have their family with them, so we stepped in as their family.” Another says, “It’s just been a very dark, trying time for all of us, but the one thing that’s bringing us a little bit of light and a little hope is music.”

As the nurses walk on the stage, the judges are amazed at the amount of singers. There are 18 nurses representing 18,000 who work for Northwell Health. The team all has their arms around one another as the judges praise the work that they have done, calling them “heroes.” Howie asks, “What is the hope? What is the dream?” The choir director responds, “We are hoping to shoot out some joy and some love and to let them know that we found our resilience and we’re hoping that they do as well.”

The brave choir members start singing, “Lean on Me” and wow the audience. Certain individuals have shining moments of solos or beat boxing as the judges appear to be impressed. Every judge and all of the audience joins in a standing ovation. Each judge agrees that they did an outstanding performance. At the end Howie reveals their destiny on the show.

The words of these medical professionals ring true after a hard year of their faithfulness in the field of nursing.

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on

The unification of these individuals reminds me of the bond that we as believers have in Christ. Even when the world is hard, we have the hope of heaven and the gift of the Spirit of God.

“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. John 17:22-23
