“Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me,” a powerful documentary that follows the legendary musician and his family on a farewell tour while he deals with Alzheimer’s recently premiered in Dallas. Greystone sponsored the Dallas screening of the film, which was produced in part by Volunteers of America and LeadingAge.
The movie offers an inside portrait of the life and times of Glen, who in 2011 released his final record and embarked on a cross-country tour of America with his wife and children while having recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. During the tour he was honored with a tribute at the Country Music Awards and a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2012 Grammy Awards.
Glen’s wife, Kim, attended the premiere and spoke to the audience about their experiences making the film, their kids’ musical aspirations, Glen’s musical influences and how they are continuing to live with the disease. The documentary has shone a bright light on Alzheimer’s awareness and the Campbell family remains committed to furthering the cause.
