These aren't your average grannies!
Last month, Toronto rapper Abdominal (also known as Andy Bernstein) and his band The Obliques performed with a seniors’ group from Holy Blossom Temple in Toronto for the first time and proved that you are never too old to be a hip-hop star.
Bernstein tells Yahoo Canada Music that his mother works as a part-time librarian at Holy Blossom Temple and it was her idea to bring him and his band in to perform for the group, which features roughly 60 seniors.
“They all know my mom so they were very happy to meet me,” the rapper said. “I guess that she had, obviously, talked about me [to them].” Adding with a laugh, “Being the proud mom that she is.”
A week prior to the recital, Bernstein visited Holy Blossom Temple to conduct a workshop with the seniors featured in the video to compose lyrics for their own performance. What he found during the writing session was that the group was very enthusiastic about participating.
