BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Three Massachusetts' celebrities have sent videos of appreciation and well wishes to their hometown communities during COVID-19.
Watch the messages of encouragement from some of the Bay State's biggest names.
According to the Principal of Winchester High School, the award-winning singer sent a video of support to the graduating seniors at her former high school this week. Trainor's message came the same day the school threw a massive drive-by graduation parade for its senior class.
"I want to give a shout out to seniors, hang in there," said Trainor. "You're about to graduate, we're so proud of you!"
The actor perhaps best known as Captain America sent a message of thanks to the healthcare heroes at Emerson Hospital in Concord this week.
Evans, a Sudbury native, said he is "deeply appreciative" for the staff working during COVID-19 at Emerson, which is where his niece and two nephews were both born.
Captain America wasn't the first celebrity to send a video of support to Emerson staff. The hospital also received a "keep up the good work" message from comedic actor Steve Carell last week.
"I like to consider myself sort of an alumni of Emerson Hospital because I was born there," Carell says. "I was voted cutest baby of 1962." Carell said his mother also worked there as a nurse for 30 years.
