A video of a 21-year-old nursing student from Northern Ireland singing ‘Amazing Grace’ for an elderly patient is going viral on the Internet.
Brittany McArthur – a nursing student from Northern Ireland – joined in when her patient Nellie started singing her favorite hymn – ‘Amazing Grace’.
Brittany, who is a trained singer, told Liftable: “We were talking about music because I always get asked do I sing because my name is Brittany (people always link it to Britney Spears).”
“We got talking about what songs we knew and Nellie sang first then asked me to sing so we sang ‘Amazing Grace‘ together as it was one we both knew well.”
Nellie’s grandson, Jason Barr shared the heartwarming video on Facebook with the caption: “How amazing is this. A young nurse Brittany McArthur came into my Granny in Altnagelvin Hospital this morning and sang to her. One of my Granny’s favourite songs.” (Credit: Jason Barr/Facebook)
Brittany told Liftable she had met Nellie on the same day and they instantly bonded.
The video went viral and left Brittany shocked. Brittany – who will be completing her three-year BSc Nursing course in August – told Liftable: “The response has been crazy! The video has reached Canada and America and that seems crazy considering I’m only a little person from little Northern Ireland!”
“Everyone has been so kind and really positive. I’m just good it was a happy news story!”
