Today we have a video that on the surface appears to just be two men singing in a car together. Quite well, we might add.
But if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that there is actually quite a touching story behind it all.
The older man singing in the video is actually Teddy Mac, also known as the Songaminute Man, and he’s singing Quando Quando Quando with his son.
For those who don’t know, the Songaminute Man has been making the rounds online and for very good reason.
Teddy Mac has been a singer all his life, earning the nickname due to the sheer volume of songs that he knows.
Unfortunately for Teddy, over the last few years he has begun to lose his memory. He often doesn’t recognize his family and has had several aggressive episodes.
There is one bright spot for Teddy however.
Whenever he is singing again, he is once again completely present. As his son writes,
It’s these moments that we treasure.”
They plan to share as much of Teddy’s music as possible to help raise funding for the Alzheimer’s Society.
This one song alone on their YouTube channel has been viewed nearly five million times.
You can clearly see how much his son appreciates the moment. It’s quite touching indeed!
Check out the video below to see Teddy and his son driving around and singing together.
