Amid the unprecedented outbreak of deadly coronavirus as most educational institutions are shut down and people are confined to their homes, numerous graduation ceremonies are taking place remotely. A sanitation worker apparently named Bruce was passing by two girls taking pictures on graduation day outside their home and he made it special in the most ‘lovely’ manner by singing for them.
In the heartwarming clip, even shared by retired American basketball player Rex Chapman, the man is recorded singing a 'soulful' song for the two girls from his van while still maintaining social distancing and the video has gone viral. Supposedly Bruce had two daughters of his own but they died in a car accident. While sharing the Chapman also confessed that the short clip made him emotional as he also has three daughters.

The video has already garnered over 1.1 million views on Twitter and has been widely shared on various social media platforms. Thousands of internet users lauded the ‘wonderful man’ that is Bruce. One of the Twitter users also noted that ‘kindness goes a long way’ especially amid these gloomy times of the global health crisis. According to the girl who originally posted the video, she was with her cousin when the ‘wonderful man’ passed by to make the day ‘memorable’.
