Michigan nurse to sing at COVID memorial ahead of Biden inauguration
Washington — A Michigan nurse whose performance of "Amazing Grace" at a Livonia hospital went viral last year will sing at a nationwide memorial for those who have died from the coronavirus ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration. Nurse Lori Marie Key, 29, is set to sing "Amazing Grace" as part of the tribute ceremony to be held 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Lincoln Memorial reflecting pool, organizers said. The COVID-19 memorial is to be Biden's first stop upon arriving in Washington on Tuesday ahead of his inauguration. The memorial is designed with 400 lights around the reflecting pool to honor the 400,000 American lives lost to COVID. Also participating in Tuesday's memorial are Cardinal Wilton Gregory, the archbishop of Washington, who will deliver the invocation, and gospel singer Yolanda Adams, who will sing "Hallelujah."rssfeeds.detroitnews.com
