A Georgia man shares a special musical bond with his mother that even Alzheimer's disease cannot break.
Kelly Ridings posted a set of videos on his Facebook page on May 5, showing him singing with his mother, while she plays guitar. Riding wrote in his Facebook post that his mother is 88 years old and resides in an assisted living facility. Even though his mother has Alzheimer’s, Ridings said “she can still play and sing better than anyone in my eyes.” He said that while he misses his mother most days, “she always comes back to me when we sing."
The videos have gone viral, having received over 38 million views. Since then Ridings has posted additional videos of the pair performing together.
