A Special Rock Group

Clips from a documentary have been circulating on the Internet. I heard about it this morning on Good Morning, America.

The documentary is about 24 elderly people who have formed their own rock chorus, which they call Young at Heart. To join the chorus, you must be at least 70 years old. They have sung in prisons and other venues, have lost members to death, but persevere.

Listen to this.

Maya, that is perfect. Perfect. Just the way I want to be when I'm old on the outside but young at heart. :)

Hi Maya

The documentary was shown here in the UK a while ago and it is amazing.

Young at Heart do a verson of Coldplay's Fix You. Here's a link in case you haven't seen it - it's lovely, but sad.

Thank you so much for posting this. It really made my day.

Sherrill: I had exactly the same reaction.

Welshcake: Yes, I've seen it. I actually toyed with the idea of posting that one here, but opted for "I Will Survive" instead.

Nan: You are very welcome. I felt the same way.
