In order to help people understand what it feels like to have Alzheimer’s, a Karaoke club in Beirut change the lyrics of famous songs. Instead of “I’m loving angels instead” or “Isn’t it ironic don’t you think”, karaoke screens showed “I’m loving angels and bread” and “Isn’t it Titanic did it sink” instead.
I loved the idea and people’s reactions. Alzheimer’s can affect anyone of us and it hurts when a loved one starts forgetting lyrics and then maybe your name.
The stunt was produced by Alzheimer’s Association Lebanon (AAL), an NGO established in 2004 to improve the living standards of people with dementia and their families.
