Singer with Alzheimer's Lands Big Record Deal

MUSIC & SONG VIDEO:

Sometimes Ted McDermott can't recognize his son Simon - but he never forgets a song. Despite his dementia, he scored 40 million views on YouTube. See the 80-year-old prepare for his big Dekka Records deal by belting out the Frank Sinatra classic, "You Make Me Feel So Young".



(ed. note.: As of June 2020, Ted McDermott is still alive, although he is no longer able to sing the way he once did; his condition has declined, but as his son Simon said in an update on their "Songaminute" Facebook page, "He is a lot more confused, but happy, safe and singing when he can.")
