VIDEO: 96-year-old widower’s love song goes viral, charts on iTunes
Fred Stobaugh, a 96-year-old man from Peoria, Illinois has quickly become the latest viral video sensation. Stobaugh entered a singer-songwriter competition hosted this summer by a local recording studio, Green Shoe Studio. Although entries were supposed to be uploaded to YouTube for submission, Stobaugh read about the contest in the newspaper and went the old-fashioned route and mailed in a hand-written copy of a song he wrote in dedication to his wife of 72 years, Lorraine, who passed away in April.
