A new voice every night at 7 to the New Yorkers thanking front line medical

Brian Stokes Mitchell

You already know that every day at 7pm New Yorkers on the street and outside their homes show their appreciation for all the front line medical workers with a shower of applause and screams.

Now there's a new voice added to the mix: Brian Stokes Mitchell.

Mitchell is (or was) playing the lead in Broadway's "Man of La Mancha," the role of Don Quixote. Every night he is belting out 'The Impossible Dream" from his Manhattan balcony as part of an ongoing tribute to the responders to the coronavirus in the hardest hit American city.

Mitchell, an American Actor and Singer won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical in 2000 for his performance in Kiss Me, Kate.

Since the health crisis gripped the city, New Yorkers stop at 7pm each night to clap in tribute to healthcare workers and first responders confronting the virus and helping the city's most sick. Mitchell broke into song as the applause faded.

The tribute on Saturday comes as New York disclosed 7,090 new positive cases over the last 24 hours for a total of 236,732 cases, while deaths increased by 540 to 13,362, marking by far the largest number of fatalities of any state.
