[Watch] Two Mayo Clinic Doctors Featured on Ellen
Two doctors from the Mayo Clinic were featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday.
Just weeks after a video of Dr. Elvis Francois and Dr. William Robinson performing a cover of Mike Yung's "Alright" went viral, the two Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgery residents made an appearance on Ellen.
The compliments flew back and forth between the doctors and Ellen, as they found a commonality in improving people's lives. "It's amazing," said Dr. Robinson, "we will finish a full day of surgery. We'll go up and see our patients to check on them. I'll be trying to examine the patient, and they'll just be batting me aside. I turn around -- Ellen Show, every time."
Not missing a beat, Ellen chimed in, "They say laughter's the best medicine, so all of us working together is really good -- you fix them up, and then I finish them off at the end."
The two then shared about the original video that went viral and made them internet sensations just last month. "You end your show every time," Dr. Robinson addresses Ellen, "with 'Be kind to one another.' And this video was our embodiment of that message. Elvis and I have been friends for a long time, we recently found that we had a shared passion in music, and we've also been realizing more and more that music and some of the intangibles play just as much a part of the healing and spiritual, emotional healing as does the drugs and the surgery and everything else."
After a 28-hour call shift, the two sat down to perform Mike Yung's "Alright." Someone filmed it, and the rest is history. Ellen invited them to perform for her studio audience, concluding, "Beautiful voice...beautiful."
