A voice from heaven?

Colette Hawley has made it her years-long mission to visit senior centers and sing to residents. The Chicago-based performer hit a snag when the pandemic started spreading, so she brought in some heavy equipment.

With nursing homes across the country prohibiting visitors, Colette rented a 30-foot cherry picker bucket truck to serenade residents from a safe distance: outside the third and fourth floor windows of Chicago Methodist Senior Services. With grateful nursing home residents clapping, waving, and some even brought outside to dance on the sidewalk, the inspiring Memorial Day concert soon went viral.
