  • A few weeks ago, I received an email from my dear cousin, Ina Jabara, who for years was head nurse at Beth Israel Hospital. She shared the saga of Doctor Tom Kato, a world-renowned transplant surgeon at Columbia University Hospital, who developed COVID-19 in mid-March. He was in the ICU, in a medically induced coma, for four weeks and not expected to survive.
.
When he was able to be removed from the ventilator, he couldn’t talk until he was given ice chips. And the first words he spoke were “It’s A Whole New World.” He has been singing that song ever since. He is now slowly recovering and, along with the nurses and doctors on the transplant team, sang the song that began his recovery. Here is the video of him telling his story, along with a performance with the team.
.
I have a lot of opportunities to hear people perform my songs. And, of course, it always moves me greatly. But this one really humbles me to my core. These people are such heroes to all of us at this time. And I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Ina for sharing this with me and to Dr. Tomoaki (Tom) Kato for allowing me to share this with the world.

  • Janis, I know you don’t like it when I get all romantic and sentimental about you in public. But, today, on your birthday, I hope you won’t mind me saying once again how deeply and completely I love you. I am the happiest and luckiest man in the world to have you by my side. Happy Birthday.
