TWO young singers melted hearts across social media when they sang outside a Helensburgh care home to isolated pensioners inside.

Jack Mullen, 13, and Alfie King, 12, posted the poignant video to Facebook, which now has over 287,000 views and 6,000 likes.

In the video, Jack and Alfie sing classics Hey Jude, Beautiful Sunday and Caledonia as well as more recent modern hits to residents of Northwood House.

The pair travelled around care homes across the area brightening up the elderly’s day with their heart-warming musical renditions.

Jack’s mother, Charlene Mullen, told the Advertiser: “Both the boys wanted to do something to cheer up the residents as they aren’t getting any visitors and came up with the idea to sing in the grounds.

“It was really lovely, the staff and residents were up dancing and they were very grateful at the end as the boys spoke to them through the window, some were quite emotional.

“They have been working hard to keep this community in high spirit. They want to look out for others during this difficult time with entertainment for the elderly.”

Alfie’s mother Tracy added: “Alfie’s done a couple of care home gigs and he loves them because you can see how much it means for the residents.

“I couldn’t be prouder of them, to come up with the idea as a couple of boys of their age, it’s great for them to want to do that.

“The staff were asking them to come back and were finding it quite emotional. The boys just wanted to show you can still do something to lift people’s spirits.

“We’ve had a couple more care homes contact us, one even as far as East Kilbride.

“We’ll do it as long as it can be done safely.”

And Alfie added: “It’s upsetting not to be in the care home with them, but it’s the little things you can do.”

The pair hit the headlines in January when a video of them singing The Beatles’ hit ‘Let It Be’, while travelling to their home in Alexandria after a gig at King Tut’s in Glasgow, became an internet sensation.

The youngsters are both members of the Dunbartonshire-based Singer Station vocal group.

Annette Gillies, manager of Northwood House, added: “The residents thoroughly enjoyed it and it cheered up the ladies all missing out on spending time with their families on this special day due to visiting restrictions.”
