Product description


“An elderly dementia sufferer is set to become a singing sensation after his viral videos landed him a record deal.”

“The old-school entertainer, a former Butlin's redcoat who has spent his whole life singing in working men's clubs, singing in the bath, singing for family and friends, dreaming of his big break, will finally get it… the story of how they got to here is Simon's as much as it is Ted's – a story about the love of a son for his father.”
Daily Mail

“THIS Morning viewers fell utterly in love with the son who helped his 80-year-old father with his dementia by using music.”
The Sun

“Carpool karaoke star with Alzheimer's disease has been named the UK's "most creative" fundraiser.”

About the Author

Simon McDermott is the son of 80-year-old Teddy McDermott, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2013. After the disease took its toll on Ted’s relationship with his family, his memory and his mood, Simon found a unique way for them to connect again: carpool karaoke. Simon filmed the pair’s joyful rendition of Quando, Quando, Quando, and put it up on YouTube with no expectations. But the video went viral across the globe, being watched by over 60 million people, and raising over £125,000 for the Alzheimer’s Society.
