It's All About Me!

Musings #9 There is Life After 40.

There is life after 40 and 50 and for the senior choir Young at Heart even into their 80s and 90s. See for yourself. Watch the DVD Young at Heart: You’re Never Too Old to Rock.

A group of senior  citizens from Northampton, Massachusetts sing their hearts and souls out for the love of music. They tour the US  even performing at a state correctional center. They have also performed in Europe. Young at Heart is an uplifting documentary, even though three members of the choir die during its preparation. Some tears were shed, yes, even by me, but as the songsters said, “The show must go on!”
