90 Year Old Grandma’s Dance Tribute to Whitney Houston Goes Viral
A YouTube video which features a frail 90 year old woman busting a move to “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” has gone viral, reaching over 800,000 views since Feb 12th. The video is a tribute to singer Whitney Houston who recently passed away.
Houston, a legendary pop diva, was found dead in her Beverly Hills hotel room on Feb 11th of unknown causes. She was one of the best-selling music artists in the world, and has sold over 170 million albums to date.
The song in the following video was one of her biggest hit singles, reading number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart when it was released and winning her a Grammy in 1988 for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
The death of the famous singer was a huge shock to the music world. Although the official autopsy report of what exactly caused her death has not been released, the police found bottles of prescription drugs in her hotel room.
Her death has spurred many to comment that the problem of drug addictions among celebrities needs to be addressed.
Drug overdose controversy aside, Adam Forgie filmed the heartwarming video of his grandmother dancing to the song in Houston’s memory and it has received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response.
Although she suffers from severe macular degeneration, is legally blind, and has had a steel hip replacement, Forgie’s granny still finds great pleasure in dancing.
The video has been flooded with comments from astonished viewers who could not believe how much energy the dancing senior citizen had.
When I watch the video I can’t help but smile and hope that I still have that much zest for life when I have reached that impressive age.
Although Whitney Houston is no more, it seems that her music will still continue to make people of all ages want to get up and dance for a long time to come.
