Elderly Man Dances With Street Busker

In this heartwarming video, an elderly man dances with a talented street busker while people on the street enjoy the show!


It is clear that the man is loving the music and can’t keep from dancing. He has definitely got some moves! During the musical interlude of the song, the singer steps out from behind her microphone and dances with the gentleman underneath the streetlight, in the middle of the sidewalk. They twist and turn together as the onlookers around them enjoy watching their impromptu dance.

The elderly gentleman’s name is Carlos Asperilla and the singer is called DanDann. Carlos was walking down the streets of Madrid, Spain when he heard DanDann crooning the song ‘My Baby Just Cares For Me’ by Nina Simon. DanDann’s voice is beautiful and enticing, and it is clear to see why she has gathered such a crowd to listen to her music. And Carlos was so drawn to her singing that he had to show his appreciation through his dancing!

The song, ‘My Baby Just Cares For Me,’ was a 1958 single and was released as the 2nd track of Nina Simone’s album titled To Be Free. Nina Simone recorded the song as a jazz standard, but it remained relatively unknown until 1987. That was when it was used in a commercial for Chanel No. 5 perfume and rose in popularity. And thankfully it did because it is a wonderful and catchy song to listen to.

The scene of Carlos and DanDann waltzing along the pavement of the Spanish capital has been viewed more than 7 million times online. This footage is something that can bring a smile to anyone’s face, and it’s great to see this uplifting video reaching people from all around the world. Hopefully this video could make you smile and remind you that dancing through life is the best way to go!
