Bluebird Care Gloucestershire North are supporting the Alzheimer's Society and the amazing Teddy Mac
We’re raising money to help fund the recording, production and distribution of a Teddy Mac Songaminute Album. Support his JustGiving Crowdfunding Page.Teddy ‘Mac’ McDermott shot to fame online as 'The Songaminute Man', when his son Simon posted videos of his father singing, during their very own Carpool Karaoke on YouTube, which rapidly went viral and became a worldwide hit.
Simon was inspired to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s Society by the advice and support the McDermott family received from the charity’s National Dementia Helpline, following his father’s diagnosis of dementia. The unlikely double-act proved to be hugely successful, contributing to the country’s leading dementia charity to the tune of more than £100,000 – a massive 11569% increase on Simon’s initial fundraising aim of £1,000.
The 80-year-old former Butlin's Redcoat is now heading for the music charts with his solo single after being signed up by the Decca Records label.
Our Stroud office Dementia Lead, Tracy Morgan, says:
Teddy is now working on an album, which he hopes to release in time for Christmas. Decca is not backing this project, and Teddy and Simon have turned to crowd funding to raise the money they need.
