Danielle Herby, a health worker at Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida in Fort Myers, was on break in the early hours when she heard a beautiful melody. She discovered another health worker, clad in his scrub suit and mask, playing a captivating rendition of Michael Buble’s ‘Feeling Good’ on the piano.

This talented pianist, known as Foley, works as an emergency department technician at the hospital. Taking a break to de-stress, he was absorbed in his music, unaware of the attention he was drawing. Moved by his performance, Danielle recorded it and uploaded the video on TikTok, where it quickly went viral, spreading to platforms like Instagram.
