Singer Sona Mohapatra will be organizing an online concert to boost the morale of all those who are fighting against COVID-19, like doctors, healthcare professionals, including nurses, ward boys and pharmacists. As per information shared by her publicist, already 17,000 people have registered for the show which is scheduled to be held on 15 May.
“Sona will be singing her hit tracks starting with ‘Ambarsariya', ‘Naina', ‘Bahara’, ‘Bekhauff’, ‘Rupaiya’, ‘Rangabati’ and ‘Dil Aaj Kal‘ amongst her other hits and will also entertain requests from the healthcare professionals who have registered. This will be a 90-minute performance, including interactions from her home studio Tarasha,” said an official statement from her publicist.
Mohapatra shared about the contribution of the corona warriors in an official statement saying, “Our medical professionals and healthcare workers are the heroes and warriors who need our love and support. They have been working extra shifts at work because the medical staff is in short supply. It’s a high-risk job where they are exposed directly to the virus, experiencing the raw vulnerability of human life at the border between life and death. Nothing prepares people adequately for a situation like this.”
Speaking about her online concert, she added, “I wanted to give them uninterrupted entertainment, cheer for them, pay tribute to them and let them know how thankful we are that they are getting up and going to work for us everyday. Their job requires commitment and courage and I wanted to do our bit in making them feel special. Proud to have heard in the PM’s latest speech that India is manufacturing 2 lakh PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) kits a day and I hope that all healthcare workers are therefore safeguarded from the disease.”
