Tufts alum Liz Queler, A81, is using her musical talent to help aid Alzheimers research with a youtube video featuring an original song titled “Hallelujah (Sing for the Hope).” The video is the base of a “View-a-thon” fundraiser where $1 will be donated to the Alzheimers Association for every view the video gets, with an ultimate goal of 50K. As she writes on the project’s site:
Hallelujah (Sing for the Hope) is an anthem about persevering through grief, and it got me through some very dark days. I had always envisioned a choir on the song, so we asked some of our singer and musician friends to lend their voices. I was stunned to discover how many of these friends had lost their own loved ones to Alzheimer’s and dementia-related diseases.
