A 110-year-old TikTok singer, Amy Hawkin sang the popular World War One song It’s A Long Way to Tipperary and this was captured by her great-grandson, Sacha, on her birthday. Since this was uploaded on TikTok, it has gotten up to 100,000 views.
Ms. Hawkins was a performer and at a very young age toured the UK; however, her mother banned her from the stage. Hanna Freeman, Sacha’s mother maintained that the reaction the video got on social media has brought faith in humanity.
The 110-year-old TikTok singer has sung songs from that era. “She’s like a clock; once you wind her up she won’t stop. She just keeps asking, ‘Would you like another one?” her granddaughter, Ms. Freeman

Ms. Freeman said that she is so lucky to spend lockdown with her grandmother. She now lives with three other generations and this is so amazing.
Ms. Freeman said that when she suggested to Sacha that Ms Hawkins should be featured in a video, it was almost like a joke. However, they were surprised at her response. She said Sacha always has a great time with his great-grandmother.
Reading the comments, people have been in tears because they miss their family or about a family they have lost. I think that has been a real lesson for Sacha too and has restored my faith in humanity in such a difficult time for everyone.Freeman
