You never know where life will take you when you say “yes!” In Fred Knittle’s case it took him to a place that was totally unexpected and into a world he never imagined. 

After retiring Fred’s wife encouraged him to try out for the Young@Heart Chorus and he became part of the group. As the group’s popularity grew they decided to record a documentary, and Fred sang this song for the filming of “Young@Heart”. He wasn’t trained as a singer. He worked as the vice president of development for the Clarke School for the Deaf in Northampton, Mass., and raised more than $22 million for the school. 

I hope Fred’s story inspires you to not only say “yes” to opportunities that come your way, but to seek them out. Our lives are much richer when we don’t just let things happen, but make them happen!
