DETROIT – Eminem is the latest celebrity to give back to health care workers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press, the rapper, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, joined forces with the Union Joints restaurant group to donate meals to Henry Ford Health System and Detroit Medical Center staffers. The dish? You guessed it – Mom’s Spaghetti, a nod to his Academy Award-winning song, “Lose Yourself.”

“Our #HealthcareHeroes ‘lost themselves’ in the delicious Mom’s Spaghetti donated by Detroit’s very own, @Eminem,” the Henry Ford Health System tweeted Tuesday. “Thank you for providing a special meal for our team members!”
