Barbra Streisand shares ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ performance in tribute to healthcare workers
I’ve long said that Barbra Streisand’s knockout rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone at the 2001 Emmys just weeks after the 9/11 attacks was the best I’d ever seen.
The great star has repurposed that memorable performance and made it a tribute to healthcare workers who have been the absolute heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic and remained committed to saving lives as an increasingly impatient country grows restless during lockdown. The video also pays tribute to other essential workers who have kept our country running.
It ends with the website address and phone number for DirectRelief, a nonprofit providing COVID-19 relief across the United States.
“DirectRelief supplies protective gear to all our heroes in the United States…Please donate if you can,” Streisand writes.
