“UP” in Real Life: 80-Year-Old Grandparents Celebrate Anniversary with Adorable Piano Duet

How beautiful!  To celebrate their 60th anniversary together, this 80-year-old couple plays Carl and Ellie's theme from "UP" together on the piano. According the uploader (and grandson of the couple), Jason Lyle Black, Grandpa and Grandma have been playing piano duets since they were first married. Black who wrote the arrangement for his grandparents added, “My grandparents were very excited to be part of this video.”  “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.”  

SOME MORE FUN FACTS From Jason Lyle Black: -The piano they are playing is an antique Civil War-era Steinway that my grandpa restored -My grandparents had a very large family - 9 children, and I'm one of a few dozen grandchildren -My grandparents lived in Africa for a year and a half, in their 70s, while serving as missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints -My grandparents are very involved in family history. My grandpa wrote an autobiography for our family and my grandma wrote a biography of her father, my great-grandpa. -On Sunday night (the night before we released this video), we got the cousins/aunts/uncles together at my grandparents' house and had our own "Family Premiere" and Grandma made cookies! :) -My grandparents are age 83 and 84
