‘The Greatest #Stayathome Videos’ features Garrett’s dance team from Madison

MADISON – A group of health care workers in Madison took a well-deserved break from the COVID-19 battle to film a dance video, which aired on “The Greatest #Stayathome Videos” on the CBS Television Network on Aug 7.

Marie Altagrace Garrett led her coworkers in their video of #BIGGERLOVECHALLENGE, an Instagram tribute for recording artist John Legend’s song, “Bigger Love.” The Madison women used Legend’s lyrics to demonstrate their love for patients that they meet and treat. The dance routine uses powerful moves to convey their indominable spirit that they want to convey to their patients.

On his Instagram account, Legend posted, “I LOVE seeing you all dance to #BIGGERLOVE! Keep posting on IG or TikTok. It makes me so happy.”

Garrett and her team were featured in the #GotTheMoves segment of the episode. In their video, Garrett starts the choreographed routine, and then two coworkers start dancing behind her. Finally, three more health care professionals join the group to create a pyramidal formation for their synchronized footwork, arm gestures and forming the shape of a heart with their hands.

The Greatest #Stayathome Videos program “showcases the next generation of viral home videos in the age of social distancing,” Jordan Kowalski with CBS Media Relations and Publicity said. “The specials celebrate the latest crop of home videos that reflect the creativity, humor and humanity that have emerged from our shared experiences over the past few months.”

The humorous segments on the show are home videos that individuals, families or friends have recorded.

Cedric the Entertainer hosts The Greatest #Stayathome Videos. He also stars in and is executive producer of CBS’ hit comedy, “The Neighborhood.” The stay-at-home video feature moments created during the country’s communal quarantine and provided an entertaining and uplifting snapshot of our world at an unprecedented time,” Kowalski said.
