Wanneroo Weekender - - State Election '17 -

A VIDEO of Wan­neroo 90-yearold Danny Do­ran singing in a Joon­dalup park has picked up nearly 200,000 views and in­ter­na­tional me­dia at­ten­tion.

Mr Do­ran’s son Kevin posted the video on so­cial me­dia on two weeks ago and it at­tracted 100,000 views within a day.

He said his daugh­ter took the video of them per­form­ing in Cen­tral Park.

“I just thought it was good be­cause he’s al­ways been a bit of a singer,” he said.

The younger Do­ran said he wanted friends and fam­ily from their for­mer home in Liver­pool in the UK to share the video but did not ex­pect it to be­come as pop­u­lar as it did, with the Liver­pool Echo news­pa­per fea­tur­ing the story.

He has been con­tacted by peo­ple who knew his fa­ther more than 30 years ago.

“He’s com­pletely taken aback by the whole thing,” he said.

“It’s been re­ally pos­i­tive.”

Danny Do­ran (90) singing in Cen­tral Park in Joon­dalup ac­com­pa­nied by his son Kevin on the gui­tar.
