80-Year Old Grandparents Celebrate Anniversary with “UP” Duet

The grandparents of LDS pianist Jason Lyle Black are featured in a new music video and the results are heart-melting.

Inspired by Pixar’s hit move UP, the two are dressed as characters from the film and play a beautiful duet of the film’s soundtrack.

“My grandparents were very excited to be part of this video,” Black noted. “It was so fun to work with them on it. I’ve loved their piano duets ever since I was a little kid, so this will be a family treasure for all of us.”

The official video description says:

The video is a homage to UP, featuring the tennis-ball cane, the “Adventure Book,” and even a “Squirrel!” reaction from the family dog. Most of all, the feeling of loyalty between Grandpa and Grandma is evident throughout the entire video. Black makes a brief cameo in the end of the video, clad in a “Wilderness Explorer” uniform, like Russell from UP.

Black has over seven million view to his credit, including Frozen Fever and The Evolution of Taylor Swift.
