David DeLoach wanted to bring some joy to his mama and her neighbors in an independent living facility for seniors.
Due to the current circumstances with the coronavirus, the independent living facility David’s mom resides in has been placed under a lockdown for preventative and protective measures until further notice. No one but the staff and medical personnel are allowed in or out of the facility.
David writes on Facebook:
As a protective/preventative measure, the independent living facility my mom is at is under lock down until further notice – no one (except staff and medical personnel) can come & go. However, most of the rooms have outdoor balconies, so today I took my guitar and lap steel and my battery powered street rig there and played for the residents. I was on the sidewalks and they were on their balconies. It was awesome and they were so appreciative. We had some great visits.
As I was outside – and far away from the residents – it was safe for them. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to do this!
I played a bunch of hymns and tunes like What A Wonderful World, and Over The Rainbow. Thanks so much to the great management at Harmony Of Brentwood for letting me come!
God is good! It was for such a time as this that we are here.

David decided to pack up his guitar, lap steel and battery powered street rig and sit outside the residents’ balconies to serenade them with some good ol’ music.
This fellow really liked my rendition of America The Beautiful and he let me know it from inside the glass. Thanks Michelle Lauer for the photo!
The residents sure did seem to thoroughly enjoy the live entertainment and were very appreciative of David taking the time out to do such a thoughtful and kind gesture.
I was able to pray for these folks and share some hopefully encouraging words with them. The lady on the 3rd floor right/red balcony yelled, "We were prisoners before you came. Now we are prisoners of hope!"
One resident even shouted from her balcony praising David saying, “We were prisoners before you came. Now we are prisoners of hope!”
David’s mama looked on proudly as he entertained them.
