A 90-year-old grandmother has posted a YouTube video of herself dancing to Whitney Houston as a tribute to the late singer.

Jeanne Harr, with help from her grandson Adam Forgie, is legally blind and suffers from moderate hearing loss, but did not let that stop her from dancing.

The video reveals Harr dancing to Houston's famous track, "I Wanna Dance With Somebody," and has gone viral on the internet.

"I'm doing this in honor of Whitney Houston," said Harr at the video's start. "It's very hard to think of her being gone."

On his Facebook page, Harr's grandson explained that his grandmother loves dancing.

Forgie wrote that "one of the few things that makes her happy is dancing," and has recorded her in motion many times before.
