Piano man, wife praise Gov. Cuomo in Instagram post
Our Long Island Piano Man took to Instagram with his wife Sunday to praise the efforts of Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Billy Joel and his wife, Alexis Roderick, began the post by saying their family is doing well and sent out their thoughts and prayers to everyone suffering during the coronavirus outbreak.
 
The couple then said how proud they were of Cuomo, who is the godfather to their daughters Della and Remy.
“We chose him knowing what a strong and steady presence he would be in their lives. He was the first person at the hospital when Della was born and has never missed a birthday, Christmas or any special moment. No matter how busy he is, he’s always there,” the Instagram post said.
The couple said the outbreak was far worse than could have been imagined, especially in New York, and that Cuomo has demonstrated authority, compassion and true dedication.
“We are not at all surprised by his leadership during such a chaotic time and we are so proud of him. We’re lucky to call him “The Godfather,” his favorite title, and our friend, Joel and Roderick concluded.
