Blake Shelton surprised mother and daughter nurses with a song dedicated to their fight against the coronavirus.

“Everything about this disease, I mean, you guys are out there on the front lines fighting it, and now you’re a survivor of it,” the 43-year-old country singer shared during his appearance on the “Today” show Thursday.

Shelton continued, explaining that “the whole time I heard you guys talking, and you keep throwing it back to God, and I love hearing you say that.”

“I want to dedicate this song from me to you guys as nurses, and being there on the front lines, and I think this song really speaks to your relationship with each other if you ask me,” the “Nobody But You” hitmaker explained, before breaking in to a rendition of his hit song, “God Gave Me You.”

The minute he started singing Bridgette, a nursing assistant, who spent weeks on a ventilator fighting for her life after being diagnosed with COVID-19, broke into tears.

The whole time she was fighting, her daughter, Sylvia, remained at the same hospital as a nurse fighting on the frontlines of the pandemic.
