Mercy Flight coordinates performance for Jennie B. residents
Mercy Flight of WNY coordinated a series of special performances throughout its service area by nationally known tenor Daniel Rodriguez.
These mini-concerts at area healthcare facilities led up to Mercy Flight’s Beacon of Hope fundraiser on Sept. 9.
Rodriguez’s first stop on Sept. 7 was the Jennie B. Richmond Nursing Home in Springville, where he sang patriotic and classical tunes that the residents and guests recognized with ease.
He also made a stop to the Mercy Flight WNY Springville base.
Known as the Singing Policeman and the Voice that Healed a Nation, Rodriguez was a NYC police officer and was one of the first responders at 9/11.
Since retiring, he has traveled the country as a professional singer.
