Mariah Carey's Hometown Asks For Famed 'Hero' Song To Be Dedicated to Healthcare Heroes

Huntington, NY (April 13, 2020) – Dr. David Buchin, director of Bariatric Surgery at Huntington Hospital and founder of Long Island Obesity Surgery, PC, is asking Long Island native Mariah Carey to sing her beloved 1993 hit “Hero” to help raise funds for much-needed safety equipment and boost morale for the thousands of healthcare workers now on the front lines combating the COVID-19 epidemic. Dr. Buchin said he has reached out to the Grammy-award-winning singer via her social media pages.

“The healthcare workers here on Long Island are true heroes who are on the front lines of this pandemic,” he said. 
“There is a critical shortage of safety equipment for them, such as N-95 masks and other protective gear.

So many entertainers are doing fund-raising concerts from their living rooms and I thought it would be great if Mariah Carey could sing ‘Heroes’ for our Long Island health care workers who are our true heroes. They sure could use a morale boost right now.”
