Hospice Worker Sings To Elderly Patient After Recognizing Her As A Former Teacher

A video of a hospice worker trying to bring some comfort to his dying patient has gone viral. Not only did the man show he has a good heart, but he also displayed his amazing talent.

A hospice worker named Josh Woodward working at Austinburg Nursing & Rehab Center in Austinburg, Ohio came across patient Mary Redmond and recognized her.

Redmond was one of his old singing teachers from when he was young. As she lay unresponsive in her bed, the Woodward hoped he could bring her a little comfort and peace. He stepped up to her and sweetly serenaded her.

He belted out the song, "How Great Thou Art," while Redmond’s son, Chuck, and daughter-in-law, Marti were in the room. Marti filmed the impromptu performance.

The young man proved his former teacher did a wonderful job, singing in a beautiful voice.

In a Facebook post, Marti wrote: "Hospice workers are angels but this hospice aide is special. Mary taught voice and piano in her day and this aide Joshua Woodard was one of her students as a kid. [What] special people hospice workers are!"

Since being posted to YouTube, the video has received nearly three and a half million views. Many praise the man for both his compassion and his talent.
