Dr. Francois' love of practicing medicine and of music collided in 2020. He was already known around the Minneapolis area for singing for patients and staff at the Mayo Clinic, along with his partner, Dr. William Robinson. They became known as The Singing Surgeons. Shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the duos' videos went viral and their uplifting music was a panacea for audiences looking for relief and hope during a difficult time.
He went on to appear on The Masked Singer, as well as numerous national television shows, including The Today Show, GMA and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. He performed on the NBC special "Back Home Again" and performed the Star Spangled Banner at the 2020 Indianapolis 500, among other appearances. He has released several songs, including an EP to aid COVID relief.
