Dave Grohl belted out an emotional version of Foo Fighters’ 1997 track “My Hero” during Sunday’s iHeart Living Room Concert for America.
Grohl joined numerous musicians to perform for the coronavirus benefit event, dedicating the song to “all the people out there who are on the frontlines, doing their best to get us through all of this.”
He shared, “I hope everyone is staying healthy. If you love someone let them know.”
Grohl added after his performance, “If you sing that last chorus every time you wash your hands, you’ll be in good shape.”
The star’s track went down a storm on social media. See some of the response below.
Sunday’s Living Room concert, hosted by Sir Elton John, also saw the Backstreet Boys, Mariah Carey and Billie Eilish perform.
Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Health officials caution against all international travel. Returning travellers are asked to self-isolate for 14 days in case they develop symptoms and to prevent spreading the virus to others.
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out.
