JAMA Medical News sat down with Elvis Francois and William Robinson to talk about their unexpected fame as a musical duo. It all started back in 2018 when the doctors sat at one of the grand pianos in the main lobby of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester in Minnesota. The third-year orthopedic surgery residents, still in scrubs, performed Mike Youngs uplifting song “Alright”, before a small crowd.  

Videos of the two performing uplifting songs, with Francois on vocals and Robinson on the piano, have gone viral, leading the two spine surgery fellows to record an EP at a Nashville studio this past spring. They're donating all the proceeds from the successful EP to COVID-19-related charities.
