Green Shoe Studios in East Peoria, IL held a song writing contest online and for their small community a few months back. When they received a large manila envelope in the physical mail, they never would have guessed it was a song entry by a 96 year old man named Fred. 

Fred lived with the love of his life Lorraine for 75 wonderful years. Sadly, she recently passed, and Fred hasn’t been able to get over her. After seeing the contest announced in the paper, he wrote this sweet song, titled Sweet Lorraine, to help his heart heal and mailed it in. 

Green Shoe was so touched by the song, they helped Fred have the song professional produced. Now, the wonderful story is trending online.

Memphis quarterback Jacob Karam was recently at St. Jude Children’s Hospital volunteering, and ended up playing piano with some of the kids.

Dawn Howe‘s eleven year old daughter Breanna is currently battling leukemia at St. Jude, but that didn’t stop her from singing her heart out with Jacob.

With Jake playing the piano, they performed an emotionally charged rendition of Jessie J’s hit single Price Tag that is now going viral!

Back in February, Linda Whitaker published this touching video of her parents, but it has only exploded in popularity recently.

While sick in the hospital, her father asked to sing a song with the love of his life for the past 66 years. As the video begins he says to his wife, “Come closer up here, this is special to me.”

They then grasp each other’s hand, and begin to sing the cheerful timeless classic You Are My Sunshine

As they end the song and recite the lyrics, “You’ll never know dear how much I love you,” they peer into each other’s eyes, and their love for each other truly becomes palpable. 

After they finish, an off camera person says what over 250,000 viewers no doubt thought after watching the tender clip.

“Now I need a tissue.”

While America and other Western countries are hyper focused on the debate over same sex marriage legislation, many people overlook the fact that 76 countries in the world still criminalize people of the LGBT community. 

Around the globe in 2013, gays are still treated as second class citizens, with some even facing the death penalty.

UN HUMAN RIGHTS posted this commercial, titled The Riddle, last week to expose the injustice and violence millions of LGBT people endure with the hopes that one day they won’t have to.
