Sesame Street’s “People in Your Neighborhood” song just got a timely update. In a collaboration with Walgreens, the music video is all about celebrating local heroes and helpers in each of our communities.

“Heroes In Your Neighborhood” features Grover, Abby and Elmo and was arranged by Bill Sherman, the show’s Grammy, Tony and Emmy award-winning music director. Fans will be excited to learn that although the song’s lyrics have been updated, the classic melody by Jeff Moss is still in tact!

The video is part of Sesame Street‘s ongoing Caring for Each Other initiative, where the goal is to assist children in celebrating the helpers in their neighborhoods. Some of the heroes featured include pharmacists, grocery stores employees and EMT’s.

Sesame Street’s partnership with Walgreens seeks to honor the challenges our frontline works encounter and that these people are everywhere! For more resources, head to the Sesame Street website.
