A former music teacher, now 80 and suffering with dementia, has stunned the internet with an amazing feat.
Paul Harvey’s son Nick gave him four notes to improvise a piece of music with. What surprised everyone is the work that came from the exercise. The notes were F,B,A, and D.
It’s long been thought that music opens a gateway to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Mr. Harvey’s song adds weight to that.
The song was so good that the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra added their talents to “Four Notes” and it’s now a single and very viral. They are releasing the single and all the money raised will go to two charities - The Alzheimer’s society and Music for Dementia
Interesting note, he actually taught Nick Van Eede, Lead Singer of the 80s group The Cutting Crew. Nick thanks Paul for his love of music in the 2nd video below marked "Dad, Paul Harvey, on BBC Breakfast (23/10/20).
