NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A singer, pianist and trumpeter performed over Zoom on Friday for residents at Azalea Trace Assisted Living.

The set was performed by Stefani Scovolo, David Burnett Graham and Matthew Von Roderick. Songs included standards like "What A Wonderful World," "At Last" and "Over The Rainbow."

"I've always had a heart for seniors," said Stefani Scovolo.

It was important to the singer, that during Nashville's COVID-19 Stay-At-Home order, the residents had something to break up their day.

"Time kind of stands still in nursing homes. They can't always bring entertainment to them and it is very important to have these little things that lift their day because they don't have a lot of people coming by," she said.

The East Nashville woman is a teacher. She first visited the assisted living community at Christmastime to deliver cards from her students.

"It doesn't take much to bless a person," she said.

The residents at Azalea Trace watched the musical performance on a screen in a common room.

"[Through Zoom] I thought it was a great way to bring them what I would give to them in person," she said.
