This was so beautiful coming from someone with so much life experience. I felt like I could feel every high and every low in her life as she sang the song.

This lovely version of “One Day at a Time” by Memphis resident Nita Talley, 93, makes it clear that this grandmother has instilled a love of music in her offspring.

She still bears that love herself.

According to the video, two family members joined her and played the guitar to the gospel hymn One Day at a Time, written by Marijohn Wilkin and Kris Kristofferson.

The song’s title is appropriate given that it emphasizes life’s journey and faith.

While the younger generation frequently has a less religious disposition, as our parents and grandparents get older, religion can take on a particularly significant role in their lives.

Some people’s lives are propelled by their beliefs. Even for non-religious people, seeing this granny sing with her family is enough to make us all cry.

Initially, Nita seemed a little bored.

But not long after, she suddenly became interested and began to sing along.

You can tell from the woman’s vast spectrum of emotions as she sang that she has experienced a lot in her life. She also appeared really content.

Children may learn to comprehend love and compassion by being taught to understand and enjoy music, which we know she did from the way she sang.

Clearly giving it her best

Nita was singing as meaningfully and passionately as she was able to. You can also sense that her son and daughter-in-law are glad to see her so pleased.

Elderly people frequently experience depression.

It’s common to feel as though life has changed as you get older. But while they sang and played the guitar, this woman was reminded of the significance of her life.

An emotional cover

You can hear the emotion in her voice just by listening to her cover of One Day at a Time.

Numerous artists’ albums include One Day at a Time, which is well-known among Christians. However, after hearing this grandma perform with her family, we are left to question if she has ever released a solo record.

We would absolutely pay her to sing this song for us. It’s incredibly emotional to hear her sing with such a genuine feeling and to see her grin and sway to the music.

Times might be difficult for our elderly.

It’s critical to keep them engaged with the outside world, bring back their passions, and find ways to bring them joy. That is precisely what the family of this 93-year-old woman chose to do.
