For her 70th birthday, her son and grandson melted her heart by recording a duet written by her grandfather
In 2014, a Michigan woman learned a family secret... that her quiet and unassuming grandfather used to write jazz music in the 1910s and 20s. Before she heard that news, she only remembered him for his "whisker burns", a cute way that he showed her affection.
After some research, they found that one of his songs didn't exist in a recording on the internet. Her sons and grandson decided to fix that.
When she turned 70 this year, they went into the studio and recorded a song from 1928 called "Clover Blossoms" in a 1920s swing / jazz style. They also recorded a "moving picture" to commemorate the event for her birthday.
