WATCH: Hasidic cantors, standing on cars, serenade medical workers with national anthem

Two Hasidic cantors sang the Star-Spangled Banner for medical workers outside NYU Langone Medical Center on 33rd Street on Tuesday, according to a video posted on Twitter by a Chabad spokesman.

Aron Gerstel and Yaakov Lemmer, the two cantors, can be seen standing on top of Gerstel’s car and singing as medical workers and spectators watch. At the end of the performance, the spectators applaud and cars and trucks honk their horns.

Gerstel said on Twitter that he visits a different hospital to sing every night.
