Move over Aretha Franklin, this granny from Utah knows how to get down.
In a tribute to the late Whitney Houston, a 90-year-old grandma from Utah, who is actually blind, took out her dancing shoes to dance to the tune of I Wanna Dance With Somebody in a video that has gone viral.
Jeanne Harr posted a video of herself on YouTube thanks to help from her grandson, Adam Forgie. According to ABC News, Harr is legally blind and suffers from moderate hearing loss, but that doesn't mean she can't groove to Whitney.
'I'm doing this in honor of the late Whitney Houston. It's very hard to think of her being gone, Harr said at the beginning of the video.
One of the few things that makes her happy is dancing, Forgie wrote on his Facebook page of his grandmother, who he takes care of.
Since the video was uploaded on Feb. 12, it has amassed nearly 600,000 views and counting. But this isn't Jeanne Harr's first rodeo; According to Forgie's YouTube account, Harr was the star of many other videos where she is caught dancing to songs by LMFAO, LCD Soundsystem, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga, to name a few.
In fact, her video to the tune of LMFAO's Party Rock exceeded one million views and prompted a visit to ABC News’ “Good Things Utah” in Salt Lake City. According to Forgie, LMFAO posted the video to their Facebook page giving a shout out to his granny.
“I’ve danced all my life,” Harr said on “Good Things Utah.” “When I’m sad, when I feel bad about being blind and all, I think ‘Jeanne, you can’t just sit in self pity.’ So I get up and I do my dancing and I feel better.”
According to Forgie, the tradition began when she frequently danced to songs in the car while he took her to run errands. He then recorded her dancing, and the rest is history.
Looks like we have 2012's newest Internet celebrity on our hands: My 90-Year-Old Grandma, as she is known online.
