A Summerville resident is using the down time from the COVID-19-induced quarantine to entertain the internet with a fantastic song, “Listen up Corona”.
Nineteen year-old Corey Curtis posted the video on Facebook of his COVID 19 song. “I was tired of seeing all the negativity on the news and media, so I just went in my room and wrote this song in less than 20 minutes,” Curtis said.
In the song, Curtis in a laid-back Jack Johnson style, sings lyrics of the hardships of quarantine, toilet paper shortages, panic, cleared store shelves and hand washing.
“Oh COVID 19 what have you done to me, people going crazy like it’s World War Z,
They cleared out all the Walmart shelves
Hand sanitizer is so hard to find, oh wait I found a $3,000 bottle online.”
My message to the Corona Virus, compiled together in a song 😂😷 Y’all make this go viral, we need a little less negativity these days from the media!! #coronavirus #coronaapocalypse 🧻

It’s got us laughing…even when it feels like there is not too much to laugh about. Hopefully it does the same for you. Thanks Corey!
