Get a Tissue Ready: Celebs and St. Jude Kids Sing 'Hey Jude'
St. Jude Children’s Hospital is arguably the most well-known children’s hospital in the country. Countless celebrities have walked through those doors to meet kids struggling with illness. Singers stop in to serenade them and actors come in to chat, all with the purpose of bringing some cheer.
In a new video that shows the brave faces of the kids at St. Jude you’ll see everyone from the doctors to the children to an awards show theatre full of celebrities singing “Hey Jude.” The clip boasts appearances by Jennifer Aniston, Michael Jordan, Keith Urban, Robin Williams, John Hamm, Betty White and many more. But it isn’t the celebs that will grab your attention. It’s the kids.
Tony Thomas, son of the founder of the hospital and the mind behind the three and a half minute clip, said about its success, “The final video looks just the way it did in my head. But even more important, we achieved what we set out to do: Now, whenever anybody hums ‘Hey, Jude,’ they’ll be thinking about St. Jude, too. It doesn’t get much better than that!”
