Tag Archives: Song sings with dad in the car

My new favorite thing…a son in the car with his dad singing…because it brings his dad back from Alzheimer’s!

Simon McDermott’s dad doesn’t remember him. He doesn’t remember he has a son. Or a wife. Or much of anything. That is the tragedy of Alzheimer’s Disease.

But what Ted does remember is how to sing. It’s what he did his whole career.

And when Simon takes his dad for long drives and turns on his music, he comes back from the place he now lives. He smiles. And he sings. And it is truly amazing.

Check out The Songaminute Man. It’s my new favorite thing.
