Cooper released the track in a bid to raise €10K to thank frontline through his GoFundMe page.
Emerging Irish singer-songwriter Stephen Cooper, working under the project name Fly The Nest, has released an ode to healthcare heroes working on the frontlines of the Covid-19 crisis titled 'Superhuman', with all proceeds going to the Ireland Thanks You campaign.
The uplifting anthem was written years ago and recorded last year as a pitch for the film Black Widow. Though it didn't land a spot in the movie, Cooper decided to release the track now under his solo project. It's now dedicated to the real-life heroes working to treat patients during the pandemic.
“The real heroes are frontline workers keeping the world alive. The song is an anthem about beating this pandemic and is dedicated to healthcare workers who really are ‘Superhuman'," he says.
The song was initially about saving someone close to you going through a hard tine, but it took on a whole new meaning for him when Covid-19 started to sweep the world and his family members joined the fight.
"My whole family work in healthcare, nurses, doctors the works – I’m the only artist. This is the least I could do to support the frontline," he adds.
Cooper also hopes to raise €10,000 for the Ireland Thanks You campaign alongside the release of 'Superhuman'. The organization has set a goal to raise half a million euros to get 5,000 #IrelandThanksYou Special Edition One4All gift cards to the value of €100 to 5,000 frontline heroes in the healthcare sector.
