Community sings its thanks to Sentara Albemarle hospital workers

Musicians throughout the community say thank you to health care workers

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. — "Music is good for the soul."

Daniel Simmons, band director at Elizabeth City Middle School, firmly believes this. That's why, when talking to a friend in the health care system about how to thank essential workers, it was the first thing that came to mind. 

Soon, dozens of local musicians had come together as a "virtual band," performing six songs via video for the Sentara Albemarle Medical Center Staff.

The video included messages of thanks and a host of children carrying signs of hope and gratitude. 

"We only have one hospital, so it really is a community hospital," says Simmons. 

The soul of that community is undoubtedly better with a little music.
