KIRKSVILLE, Mo. — One local woman is making the most out of her time being stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
Katie Angeli grew up in the St. Louis area and studied theatre and music at Truman State University.
She said she’s been singing for as long as she can remember and uses music as an outlet during stressful times.
“I had been playing a lot of music to pass the time while social distancing,” she said.
After her cousin shared a picture on social media that said, “COVID-19, I’m begging of you please don’t shake my hand” she got an idea.
Angeli recreated Dolly Parton’s song “Jolene” into a song about COVID-19 and made a music video to go along with it, from the safety of her bedroom.
“I figured I had plenty of time on my hands so I might as well film a video to go along,” she said.
She said she had a lot of fun making it and decided to share it on Facebook to “hopefully bring some joy in this time of uncertainty.”
