Cuba Gooding Jr. is doing his part to lift the spirits of the brave women fighting COVID-19 on the frontlines … with an uplifting song and tale of his own perseverance.
The “Jerry Maguire” star serenaded the nurses at 2 of the biggest medical facilities in Anaheim, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in Orange County … singing a song he learned as a youngster in church.
Cuba ditched his mask to sing and tell an inspiring story of his own trials and tribulations in the Anaheim area … recalling the time he was so down on his luck he was homeless and living in a shelter.
The actor says the community in Anaheim and nearby Tustin rallied around him when he was struggling … and he says the good folks in Orange County will always have the nurse’s backs.
Cuba’s looking forward to getting back to Anaheim Ducks hockey games and trips to Disneyland … but in the meantime, he’s encouraging our essential heroes to stay strong and know they’re loved.
