Kikar Hashabat reports on singer Benny Friedman who arrived in Israel for a number of concerts. On the second day of his stay he received a phone call from Menachem Toker who told him that he was on live radio "kol chai" and that a listener to his program was a patient with cancer who really loves the song "There is hope" and listens to it continuously and derives chizuk from the words.
Mr. Toker asked if, on such short notice, Mr. Friedman would be willing to go to Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv and surprise her and sing her the song "There is hope".
The singer gladly accepted the request and set off with public relations representative, Tomer Cohen. He performed the hit song as well as others.
Soon some yeshiva students came join Mr. Friedman and not one eye among the audience remained dry.
The singer said after the visit, "We came to encourage and provide support, and we were the ones who ended up being encouraged.
