Barbra Honors Frontline Workers With 'You'll Never Walk Alone' Tribute

Barbra Streisand

Streisand had previously sung the song for 9/11 first responders.

Barbra Streisand has created a touching tribute to the frontline workers of the COVID-19 crisis.

The gay icon released a new video Tuesday to her track "You'll Never Walk Alone," which honors medical and other essential workers. The day also happens to be the eve of National Nurses Day, a day celebrating the contributions and sacrifices of nurses.

Streisand first recorded "You'll Never Walk Alone" in 1997; it was a cover of a song from the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel.

However, Streisand's version achieved cultural prominence in 2001, when she gave a surprise performance of it at the Emmy Awards as a tribute to the first responders of the World Trade Center terrorist attack.

"I sang this song almost 20 years ago after 9/11. Today we face another crisis, but I think the words still apply," Streisand stated in the video's introduction. "With love and gratitude, Barbra."

Streisand encouraged viewers to donate to DirectRelief, a nonprofit that connects frontline workers with medical resources.
