Last night we caught a documentary on More4 about a New England singing group called Young @ Heart, a bunch of geriatrics who haven't given in to old age, and who have a lot of rock songs in their eclectic repertoire.
It was riveting. Far and away the best thing I've seen on TV for ages.
And at the end Fred, a big fat guy in his 80s, on oxygen, who couldn't stand up, sang absolutely wonderfully and beautifully 'Fix you', a Coldplay song, for two of the group who'd died that week.
DH has had to download the Coldplay album and the video.
The documentary is being shown again on Channel 4 on 22 November - WATCH IT.
Update on 2 December: There is now a piece about Fred on the Young @ Heart chorus website - www.youngatheartchorus.com
