It's a beautiful tearjerker: Scrubs Choir sings 'I'll stand by you'

More than 400 staff at The Royal Melbourne Hospital have taken part in the choir's latest musical masterpiece

The Royal Melbourne Hospital's 'Scrubs Choir' is at it again with a rousing version of 'I'll stand by you' by the Pretenders.

The choir, led by the hospital's music therapy lead Dr Emma O'Brien OAM, has proven so popular that it is now in its second iteration, with more than 400 staff members taking part — singing, dancing and playing an array of musical instruments. 

The song and video were created to mark last week's 'R U OK? Day' to raise awareness of mental health issues, which many commented on Twitter was never more important than during the current pandemic.
