Hospitals can be grim, but two orthopedic surgery residents in Minnesota lightened the mood with a soulful clip of them showing off their musical talents.

Elvis Francois and William Robinson, who both work at Mayo Clinic, recently plopped down at a piano to perform a short rendition of Mike Yung’s “Alright.” While Robinson soulfully played the keys, Francois belted out the tune.

They posted the one-minute video on Facebook Monday, and it has since garnered much attention. In just a few days, it had been shared more than 19,000 times and viewed over 1 million.

In the caption, Francois said he was inspired by a mentor who told him surgeons are responsible for bearing the burden of worry with their patients.

“As health care providers we often meet people at their greatest time of need....and sometimes the best gift you can give is a simple reminder that everything will be alright,” he wrote.

This isn't the first time the medical professional has been praised for his voice. He often fills up his Instagram page with uploads of him singing around the hospital. He said in one post, "music is medicine."
