With the COVID-19 pandemic still wreaking havoc to the lives of millions of people all over the world, videos of a ‘singing’ Husky emerged.
Kovu is a three-year-old Husky living in Colorado with his fur dad, Tate Hegstrom. Tate works at a hospital in Colorado as an administrative resident. And like most hospitals around the world, the pandemic impact is strongly felt in his work area.
The tandem first created their version of “Lean on Me” by Bill Withers. While Tate is singing with his guitar, Kovi is behind him howling to the song’s every note! This performance is part of HCA healthcare’s effort to show appreciation to the hospital’s frontline workers.
“Kovu is a natural performer,” according to his fur dad. It takes only a bit of motivation, and he will immediately “hop right in!” Tate shared that Kovu has the same response to sirens and other sounds. Its “big ol’ howls” gives him a sense of relief as he comes home after a long day’s work!
The now-famous video of Kovu and Tate has been circling around the internet and has been shown on TV shows such as “Good Morning America.” To sustain the energy, the two also performed Jason Mraz’s “I’m Your’s” where Kovu, as expected, hit the high notes with his howls!
Kovu now has more than 7,000 followers on his Instagram account – of course, managed by his fur parents. Videos of him singing and also random his random pictures are featured. Surely, his followers are well-updated.
Tate shares that he wants his performance with Kovu to encourage and support others, especially those in the frontlines of fighting COVID-19.
We surely are expecting more singing videos from Kovu – a little sunshine as we all face the pandemic.
Thank you so much, Kovu.sings for sharing your wonderful songs via Instagram
