Irish rockers Keywest has released a new single ‘Ordinary Superhero’ in honour of Healthcare Heroes, in association with Heroes-Aid.com.
Keywest have come together with Heroes-Aid to put together a music video with frontline workers at its heart, to raise vital funds for our Healthcare Heroes.
The music video for ‘Ordinary Superhero’ features medical professionals Dr Matthew O’Toole, Nurse Emma Coughlan, Paramedic Steven Mangan and his daughter Saoirse.
Speaking about ‘Ordinary Superhero’ Kav of Keywest said: "We are honoured to be able to contribute in any way we can. It’s an achievement if we can move people to understand and empathise with what our frontline heroes face on a daily basis," he continues by saying: "It's even better if we can remind a healthcare worker that we are thinking of them and what they are doing for us. And it's amazing if we can help raise funds to protect them while they are exposed to covid-19."
Speaking about the release of the Video and the launch of Heroes-Aid, Doug Leddin said: “This Moving song and video uniquely captures the Fears and Emotions of Health Care Workers as they bravely go to work every day ”
The initial aim of Heroes-Aid is to raise funds through gofundme to provide practical support such as PPE and other resources to keep our healthcare heroes safe as they care for us. The fund also intends to provide longer-term psychological, educational and practical support for frontline healthcare workers, their children and families who have been negatively impacted by Covid-19.
