Irish Child’s Sweet Song Brings Great-Grandma With Dementia ‘Back To Life’

Beautiful and heartbreaking.

An Irish five-year-old, Sophie Miller, sang her beautiful version of “You are my sunshine” you cheer up her great-grandmother.

Sophie hadn’t seen her great-grandmother, Breda, since she was just nine months old but the five-year-old knew just the right way to get reacquainted with her after over four years apart, serenading her “great Nana” with “You are my sunshine.”

Now living in London, great-nan Breda is blind and because Sophie had not met somebody with dementia, her mother Sarah was concerned that she would be a bit nervous meeting her great-granny after all this time.

However, the pair got so well that Sophie hoped to stay longer with Breda rather than hit the shops while she was in London, and Breda telling everyone all about her childhood when she was Sophie’s age.

The song Sarah sang to her great-nan was just beautiful and very moving.
