Mariah Carey Covers David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ In Tribute To Frontline Workers
Mariah Carey performed a special medley of songs at Robin Hood and iHeart Radio‘s “Heroes of New York” event Tuesday night paying tribute to frontline workers fighting the coronavirus in New York.
The “Songbird Supreme” performed a cover of David Bowie‘s “Heroes” along with her own “Hero” and “Joy to the World.”
“Seven months ago, New York had its back against the wall. Our neighbors needed help, and Robin Hood reached out to us for our support. New Yorkers answered the call and stepped up,” the superstar said in her introduction, referring to the poverty-fighting organization.
Speaking from her home studio, Carey dedicated her songs to “the thousands of heroes in New York who did their part to help put our city back on the road to full recovery.”
The show also featured performances by Andra Day who sang “Silent Night” and Tony Bennett, who sang “Smile.”
The citywide, star-studded, one-hour show closed with the debut of “We Will Rise,” a tribute to the sacrifices of the frontline workers who saved New York City at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Notable appearances at the event included New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Al Pacino, Charlamagne tha God, Eli Manning and John McEnroe.
