To bring awareness to National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and honor its 50 years of finding cures and saving children, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has released a new video set to the classic Beatles song “Hey Jude.” The clip features patients, staff, and an all-star roster of celebrities coming together on behalf of the children of St. Jude.
Celebrities featured in the video include Keith Urban, Kellie Pickler, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, Big & Rich, Randy Owen, Jennifer Aniston, Betty White, Michael Jordan, Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres, Dr. Oz, Jimmy Kimmel, Jordin Sparks, Michael Strahan and many more. The video was produced by Tony Thomas, son of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas.
“It is truly wonderful to see how the ‘Hey Jude’ video brings together in such an inspiring way an amazing cast of celebrity friends, patients and faithful supporters of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Richard C. Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC/St. Jude. “We are grateful to everyone who joined us in this creative endeavor as we continue to mobilize the world in the fight against cancer and other catastrophic diseases that threaten so many precious children.
