96-year-old Fred Stobaugh entered a singer-songwriter competition with a composition about his late wife Lorraine, who had died a month earlier after over seventy years of married life.
But Fred is not a singer or musician and submitted only a simple set of lyrics instead of a finished song and recorded performance.
The studio running the competition decided to compose, arrange, produce and professionally record Fred’s song.
The video below tells the story.
A Letter From Fred.
Tissues may be needed about the 6:30 mark and beyond.
