An Irish MMA fighter has shared a heart-warming video of himself and his granddad singing ‘Imagine’ together.
Ian Garry visited his granddad, who suffers with dementia, to show him a new tattoo he had featuring the word Imagine.
It is of course the name of the iconic song of peace written by the late Beatles legend John Lennon.
Garry, who is a professional cage fighter and signed to the Cage Warriors franchise, told the camera: “He’s got dementia so he can’t really remember a lot of things lately, and obviously it’s getting worse. But for some reason whenever you say the word imagine,” he immediately goes to John Lennon and starts singing.”
“I’m hoping and praying now if I say this, he’ll sing it.”
The 21-year-old stepped into the house and showed his granddad his new tattoo, and told him it says Imagine.
Sure enough, Garry’s grandfather began singing and the two sat side-by-side and performed a moving duet together.
Garry shared the video online and it immediately struck a chord with people and was shared and viewed thousands of times.
