AceShowbiz - Bosses at "The Masked Singer U.S." have donated 10,000 surgical masks to hospitals in New York amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Executives at the FOX TV show, which sees celebrities don elaborate disguises in a bid conceal their identity from audiences and a panel of judges as they belt out popular tunes, have announced the pledge, with judge Ken Jeong confirming the news on Twitter.
In a video shared on the show's official account on Wednesday, April 2020, he said, "Hi, this is Ken Jeong. Fox and The Masked Singer have purchased 10,000 FDA-approved N95 surgical masks."
"They arrived in New York yesterday and will be delivered to hospitals in dire need of equipment," he continued. "On behalf of everybody on The Masked Singer, we are sending all of our love, thoughts and best wishes to all affected by coronavirus aka Covid-19. Stay safe and healthy and love you."
According to Fox News, financing for the masks came from a fund for an Emmy Award season event this spring, which will no longer be taking place due to the global health crisis.
