San Ramon Regional Medical Center Nurse Sings in China for Veteran Families

Nov 27, 2019

A nurse at San Ramon Regional Medical Center traveled to China earlier this year to sing at two benefit concerts for WWII veteran families.

China was the first country to enter World War II and was an ally of the United States at the same time they were resisting and escaping communism. During this tumultuous time, American music became the sound and beacon of freedom.

In May 2019, Francine Fitzgerald and her Chinese band – Arthur & Cool Cats – were invited to Taipei, Taiwan, to sing at two benefit concerts for WWII veteran families. The show is called “Memory Lane” featuring primarily popular American songs from the 50’s and 60’s with one exception

From there, our band was invited to perform in Taipei. Singing this beloved folk song in Chinese for the Chinese is a huge honor.”

The song is a touching story about a Chinese maiden who tends her sheep in a remote land when along comes a boy who sees her beauty.

“Connecting with people and making them feel good is what I like to do. Performing and nursing are a lot alike. It’s that heart-to-heart connection,” Fitzgerald said.

Fitzgerald has been singing, playing guitar and traveling with Arthur & Cool Cats for 15 years and a nurse for 35.
