Dr. Francois, an orthopedic surgeon, who is a resident in a Minnesota hospital, took to Instagram to share a video of him singing John Lennon's hit song "Imagine," while his colleague, William Robinson, played the piano.

In the video, the young doctor wore blue scrubs and did justice to the song, drawing several reactions from people who were not only impressed by his dedication to service but also his beautiful voice.


The doctor penned down a lengthy inspirational message to encourage millions of people who are currently forced to stay at home in self-isolation. He wrote:

"In life, there are so many things that divide us. Religion, race, politics, social status, and many more....But today, a global pandemic brings us all together as one."

The video has garnered more than 2 million views and has also been shared more than 206,000 times since the physician first posted it on March 23.

The 34-year-old physician who grew up singing in the church also appeared as a guest on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" back in 2018. He told Ellen DeGeneres:
