"Gloria" is not just for victories anymore.

It's now also a lullaby in St. Louis.

Missouri Baptist Medical Center and Blues national anthem singer Charles Glenn teamed up for a memorable and super cute ad that hit social media on Saturday.

In the clip, Glenn performs a soft, lullaby version of "Gloria," Laura Branigan's 1982 hit that the Blues have adopted as their victory song on their run to the 2019 Stanley Cup Final, in the nursery of the hospital as babies drift off to slumberland.

As Glenn sings in a sweet, hushed tone, the camera pulls back to reveal another guest in the nursery: The Stanley Cup.

Missouri Baptist partnered with the Blues in September. Babies born between September 5, 2018 and May of 2019 were dressed MoBap Baby Blue Notes onesies with the Blues logo at the center.

As hockey fans, the MoBap Baby Blue Notes have known nothing but success as the big club is just a game away from bringing home the Cup, but, the original version of "Gloria" is probably a little too uptempo for them.

Thankfully, Glenn, who announced his retirement at season's end after 19 seasons, remedied that for the little ones.
