Count's 'Dance With Somebody' Cover Brings Old Man To Tears In Downtown LA (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The band Count's acoustic version of Whitney Houston's "Dance With Somebody" is one of the best three minutes of human-to-human contact that we've seen. Music often brings people together -- and often, it even brings people to tears. Watching Daryl, an old man on an LA bench, be serenaded by lead singer Gaby was enough to bring us to tears, and we weren't even there.

The band was filming a music video in downtown LA and decided to sing Daryl this beautiful Whitney Houston favorite after he proposed his hand in marriage to Gaby. In these few minutes of pure joy for Daryl and everyone else around, we can see how music truly is one of the most powerful art forms in the world.
