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.
