The caption of the video reads, "One of our Assistant Nurses, Emma Young, revealed her hidden talent this afternoon and filled our Inpatient Unit in Highwoods with beautiful melodies. She really brought a smile to everyone's faces on such a beautiful Friday!"
"I sing whenever I can. Every time I'm on shift, if it gets quiet then I try to sing a few songs on the piano. It really helps to make patients and families smile and creates such a nice atmosphere," said Young.
"It's very uplifting and it really brightened up my afternoon. She plays beautifully and sings beautifully," said St. Helena Hospice patient Sharon Jack.
"It made me feel so welcome and at home. My husband, daughter and friend were here as well and it really made me feel so settled," Jack added.
When asked about how she felt about her cover going so viral, Emma said, "I didn't expect it at all and it hasn't really sunk in yet that the video has gone viral," she said. "Lots of my friends and family have been messaging me saying, 'Don't forget about us when you're famous!' It's amazing how many people have viewed the video."
She also explained the reason she chose to sing Adele's hit 'Make You Feel My Love.' "I'm a huge fan of Adele and absolutely love her music. The words in the song are really powerful and are very meaningful to patients and families so I know it really touches people when I sing the song," she said.
Emma also said she sings because she cares for her patients and added that their response means the world to her.
"The hospice really is a lovely organization to work for, and I feel privileged to work there and care for patients in one of the most important times of their lives," she said.
St Helena Hospice cares for those living with life-limiting illnesses and is located in Colchester, England.
