What's This?

Ted McDermott spent his entire career as an entertainer but at the age of 79 his mind is not as sharp as it used to be. He was diagnosed with dementia back in 2013 and since then the world was starting to become an unrecognizable blur for the old man.

However, when his son Simon picked him up and took him for a ride, a song came up on a radio and all of a sudden Mr. McDermott was once again himself. They did a little car karaoke performance singing Quando, Quando and having fun with Ted leading the way, singing every lyric just like he used to. That’s the power of music.
