Valleywise Health Featured in David Archuleta Music Video
David Archuleta, a singer-songwriter and finalist on American Idol, has released a touching music video as a tribute to those fighting through this pandemic. After seeing the Valleywise video of the first COVID-19 patient being discharged from Valleywise Health Medical Center, he chose to feature it in his music video.
On his YouTube page, Archuleta writes: "I hope you enjoy it, as we all get through these hard times. I also hope it can help you to "just breathe" and feel some peace of mind! All proceeds from the views of this video will be donated to the Direct Relief organization so please share and help us raise money towards COVID-19 relief efforts."
