Le Festin - Ratatouille
Eric Mark, Piano "I dedicate the piece to the food & agriculture workers who've been working hard to keep our society nourished. La Festin is from the Ratatouille and has such a calming and playful melody. I feel like as people grow more restless in isolation, we could use a bit of that calming playfulness in our lives. Y'know, something to keep us sane as we push through the pandemic."

Lyrics: Today you mended a broken story It was hard but it was beautiful Today you went on despite your worries It is hard when your heart holds it all Ooh I'm grateful for you Ooh I'm grateful for you Today you didn't want to hurry But you had to go, cause the world said so Today you kept repeating sorry But the error wasn't yours, wasn't yours at all Ooh I'm grateful for you Ooh I'm grateful for you Oh I love your humanity All the notes in your melody You're strong even when you don't feel it There's hope, every day you build it You build it, you build it Ooh I'm grateful for you Ooh I'm grateful for you I’m grateful for you I’m grateful for you I’m grateful for you I’m grateful for you
"Do You", by Yiruma
I dedicate this video to all the frontline workers who have not been recognized for their actions, who have kept us safe and allowed us all to continue living healthy lives during this pandemic. I hope that this piece by Yiruma brings a little light to your day and reminds you how much you are loved. Thank you for everything you do. - Ethan Shi
Beyond the wards
Since COVID-19 started, essential workers such as those in healthcare have been highly appreciated—and rightfully so. Meanwhile, frontline workers from other sectors, such as transportation, postal services, and waste management, have also been a pillar for society, yet haven't been shown the same amount of recognition on mainstream media. Amid the confusion, fear, and panic, these workers continue to step up and put their duties before anything else. It’s important for us to look beyond the hospital wards and see the heroes that occupy our day-to-day lives too. This video recognizes some of these essential workers. During this challenging time for everyone, let's come together to provide under-recognized essential workers with extra support in the form of kind and uplifting messages of encouragement, love, and appreciation. Thank you once again to all of our essential workers!
