Singer opens about about ‘what it’s like to sing with a legend for so many years’
“He’s one of my most favourite people on the whole planet," hun sa. “I can’t tell you how much I learnt from him, and what it’s like to sing with a legend for so many years – I’ve sung with him for almost 10 år. And it’s heartbreaking to watch what he’s going through with Alzheimer’s.”
Gaga urged anyone listening who knew someone dealing with Alzheimer’s or dementia to “play some music from their childhood, and I promise you they will come to life in a way that is not expected”.
She caveated this by pointing out that “every case is different”, but spoke to her own personal experience of watching Bennett remember the lyrics to the songs they recorded together.
Under intervjuet, Ball played a recording of Gaga’s co-star Salma Hayek praising the singer for her work and performance in Ridley Scott’s new film about the Gucci family scandals.
