When Harry Gardner took the stage at Britain’s Got Talent, something about him suggested he was a head above the competition. The quiet 16-yr-old humbly answered all of the judges questions and announced he’d be performing a song he’d written all on his own.

The tune was written for Harry’s nan, who was diagnosed with Alzheimers 3 years ago. It beautifully shows the heartache and hope a family feels when a loved one is diagnosed with the disease. From the first few notes the song struck a chord with everyone in the audience and not a dry eye was visible in the room.


Titled ‘Not Alone,’ the song gives a window into the life of a family member after their loved one is diagnosed with the memory thieving disease. Though the words project a certain sadness, it also celebrates the memory of Harry’s nan and a life well lived and loved.

Check out the beautiful tribute and share with your friends today.
