"Fix You" from "Young @ Heart"

*SPOILER WARNING*

This is the version of Coldplay's "Fix You" from the documentary Young @ Heart, sung by Frank Knittle, who suffers from congestive heart failure. The song was supposed to be a duet between Knittle and Bob Salvini, but Salvini passed away a few weeks before the concert, and the song was done as a solo dedicated to him.

This is one of the most moving moments in any film all year. If you have not seen the film, it may not have the same impact, but you cannot deny the power and conviction with which Knittle and the Young at Heart chorus sings this song to their friend. Simply beautiful.
