Man Gathers Neighborhood To Sing Happy Birthday To 98-Year-Old Neighbor

It was a heartwarming moment captured on camera when an entire neighborhood came together to sing Happy Birthday to their 98-year-old neighbor.

As COVID-19 has caused many people to shelter indoors for safety, this also means missing out on some momentous occasions. So when Chris Carr heard that his neighbor, Barbara, was turning 98, he wanted to make sure she felt special.

Chris and Barbara live on the same street in Redditch, Worcestershire. He had the brilliant idea to rally all of the neighborhood together for a rousing rendition of ‘Happy Birthday.’ He told Daily Mail, “Obviously, given the current pandemic I maintained a social distance while I was out knocking doors and every single member of our community agreed to come and sing.”

And he received an overwhelmingly positive response. “Most of the people who I spoke with knew Barbara. In fact, everyone on the street said 'Oh Barbara… Yeah, we will come and sing.”

In this viral clip, you can see Barbara emerge from her home and receive an unforgettable birthday surprise. The look on her face says it all. This is definitely one special lady and it’s so incredible to watch this community come together during these uncertain times. And it’s a moment that has truly had a lasting effect on the entire neighborhood.

Chris said, “I feel closer to my neighbours now and when we go out on our daily exercise or if we are walking the dog and see a neighbour in the front garden we will actually stop and talk.”
