The NFL Players Choir Sings Touching ‘Little Light Of Mine’ Rendition For Cancer Survivors (WATCH)

We’re still months away from the start of the NFL season, but that isn’t stopping past and present players on the NFL Players Choir to put in a team effort for a good cause.

The NFL Players Choir recently gathered together virtually for The American Cancer Society’s virtual event called Share The Light. The event hosted by Carrie Ann Inaba (“The Talk” “Dancing With The Stars”) welcomed a number of celebrities and friends to celebrate cancer survivors and bring attention to their unique needs.

The NFL Players Choir directed by Multi-Grammy Award Winning Producer Myron Butler were among those that supported the efforts of the American Cancer Society’s campaign with their rendition of “Little Light of Mine.” 

Check out the touching performance:

One of the reasons these players’ and everybody contributing to the current campaign are so important is because of the new vulnerabilities that cancer patients are facing in the age of COVID-19.

“Because of COVID-19, cancer patients are more vulnerable than ever. They are not only especially vulnerable to contracting coronavirus, but nearly 80% of cancer patients in active treatment have seen their screening and vital treatments delayed due to coronavirus,” American Cancer Society Chief Executive Officer Gary Reedy says in a statement received by Five:22 Culture. “ The American Cancer Society must remain strong so that we can continue with the services, research, and advocacy that save lives. The Share The Light campaign, along with support from our friends, is helping ensure we do just that.”
