Dr. Elvis Francois is an orthopedic surgeon who helps people everyday, but now he is using his viral voice to assist those affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The 34-year-old Hatian-American just released a four-song project to raise money for COVID-19.

Last month, Francois, who works at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minneostota, landed a record deal with the Nashville-based Big Machine Label Group. 

Now, Music Is Medicine has been released with all proceeds going to The Center of Disaster Philanthropy COVID-19 Response Fund.

Francois told The Associated Press, “It’s been such a unique time in all of our lives. I’m just honored to be able to share a bit of music with people, especially during these trying times. What we do as surgeons, what we do as physicians goes a very long way, but music moves people in a way that medicine can’t.”

He continued, “Literally if you asked me a month ago, I would probably laugh at you. Like, I’ve never even recorded a song. I’ve had to pinch myself, ‘Is this actually real?’ Seeing it all come together, it just feels like a dream.”

Music Is Medicine is available on all digital platforms.
