By Heather Cichowski

Health care workers are working tirelessly on the front lines in the battle against the coronavirus pandemic. To let them know how appreciative and grateful we all are, Shania Twain posted a video on Instagram where she voiced her appreciation in song.

In the March 19 video clip, the Canadian icon appeared in front of musical equipment and speakers. She sat casually on a stool in an uplifting yellow hoodie. One of her dogs, a yellow lab appropriately called Melody, was perched on the stool next to her.

"Melody and I want to say thank you to all the health care workers out there putting yourselves out there, on the line, for all of us," she said as she opened the video.

The "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" singer then started strumming her guitar and added, "So, this is our little thank you."

The country star then sang emotional and heartfelt ballad as she played her acoustic guitar.

"Thank you for being you," she crooned. "And everything that you do/From all of us/Your selflessness/You're beautiful/Thank you for being you."

After singing the beautiful lines, Shania again voiced her gratitude to all the health care and gave Melody a pat on the back.

"Made me cry. I’m a nurse," said another.

"I like how the pup winked when you sang the words 'you're beautiful,'" remarked a few people.

Many celebrities are doing what they can to make a difference as the world battles the coronavirus, from boosting morale to donating to food banks and/or to support vulnerable populations.
