95 Year-Old First-Time Songwriter

Vera Coupal of Regina, a 95 year-old woman living in long-term care, turned to songwriting in her nineties and has written 57 songs. She had her song recorded at the facility with a producer, Ryan Hicks, taking his portable studio to her home to record on-site. The CBC reported the story here.

And you can listen to Vera and Ryan in their own voices (with the song) here:
