Dr. Alex Aldren, a 28-year-old Briton, left medicine four years ago to pursue his true passion: singing opera. He had graduated from the University of Birmingham and had started working at the Royal London Hospital, but he decided to pursue his true dream and get on stage. In 2019, he completed his musical studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London and began singing professionally. Currently, in the midst of the covid-19 crisis, Aldren has returned to hospitals, where in addition to joining the fight against the disease, he delights his colleagues with his musical skills.

The young man is enthusiastic about his re-entry into the British National Health System: “I feel incredibly lucky to be working and to be able to contribute to fighting this crisis, and to be able to sing even so. It has become a regular thing at work and I am singing a lot. Everyone is enjoying it and so am I, definitely, “he says. His voice has already become part of the daily life of Newham Hospital in London.
