Young @ Heart

For some reason, this goes well with the Soul Train that we were watching this morning.  My brother alerted me to this:

“You may have heard about this singing ensemble already.  It is a group of aged 75+ people that sing rock tunes in the Boston area.  They take this seriously and their goal is to not be a novelty but a singing group that people walk away feeling moved; I certainly was.

“Here they perform the Coldplay song Fix You – notice the man’s oxygen tank.  Life is short and these people obviously want to make the most out of it or at least make a difference; if we only had more of this attitude in the world.  It makes me think of a quote from one of my favorite movies, Shawshank Redemption; “Get busy living, or get busy dying”.  Judge for yourself…”

This is a truely moving performance: Fix You

They also have some more light hearted performances: Staying Alive Medley, I Wanna Be Sedated, Walk on the Wild Side.

This is why I love the Internet.
