Army Sergeant 1st Class Michaela Shelton created a virtual sing-along to help children cope with the anxiety and stress during coronavirus. Their rendition of a song from "The Sound of Music" is blowing people away on social media.
"I wanted to make this video and bring these children together in this way because I know they're going through a lot of stress, uncertainty and confusion," Shelton said of the lighthearted Zoom song. "Music not only connects people, but it has an incredible healing power, which is what we all need right now, especially children."
The Army Field Band launched its "We Stand Ready" daily live broadcasts on March 20 as a way to meet the emotional needs of Americans during these tough times.
Programming starts at 7 p.m. ET Fridays and Saturdays, and 1 p.m. Sunday through Thursday streamed on the Army Field Band'sFacebook pageandYouTube channel.
