Singer Andy Grammer Pays Bill For Elderly Ladies, Then Realizes How Connected We All Are
July 31, 2018
Singer Andy Grammer recently paid the tab for a group of elderly ladies at a restaurant in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire.
Initially, he planned to leave before they knew their meal was paid, but he felt an urge to walk over and say something before he left.
That’s when he realized how connected we all are.

The “Honey, I’m Good” singer and songwriter said he was sitting down at breakfast when he noticed a group of five elderly ladies. They made him really miss his mom.
“Was sitting at breakfast in Hampton Beach and across the restaurant were five SUPER CUTE elderly ladies,” Grammer wrote in a Facebook post. “I don’t know why but it made me miss my mom hard and I felt a strong urge to pick up their check. I don’t know them and didn’t want to bother them but I just did it.”
Grammer said he wasn’t planning on letting them know about his kind gesture, but decided to tell them because he thought they might like to hear that he missed his mother.
It turns out he was right.
“I was just gonna leave cause a lot of times it’s better to just do nice deeds without asking for acknowledgment but something felt like I should tell them I missed my mom, like they might like to hear that. So I walked over and said ‘you are five of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever seen, I lost my mom awhile back and something about seeing you made me miss her this morning so I’m getting your check’.”

Grammer’s inspired action provoked an emotional response from one of the women.
“The lady on the end popped up with arms wide open and said ‘COME HERE, I lost my son and really needed this.’ And then she gave me a mom hug I needed and I gave her a son hug she needed’.”
Grammer concluded his post by saying, “We are all so connected.”
