Old Orchard Beach father-daughter duo turn to 'Amazing Grace' during coronavirus pandemic

"Amazing Grace" takes a role in supporting music lovers around the country in this uncertain time.

OLD ORCHARD BEACH, Maine — A father-daughter duo is turning to music to keep spirits up during the coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic. 

Geroge Shabo, Music/Athletic Director at Loranger Memorial School, and his daughter Melissa sent NEWS CENTER Maine a video of the pair playing "Amazing Grace" on the piano and tenor saxophone. 

"Personally, I was in a funk until I heard and saw an inspiring vocal performance of 'Amazing Grace' on The Today Show by a reverend. He said 'Amazing Grace' was our spiritual anthem during this pandemic. So, my daughter and I decided to perform and record the song, hoping that others will similarly be inspired," George said in an email.

Earlier this week, a video of two doctors from Minnesota performing "Imagine" by The Beatles went viral.
