Puddles Pity Party loves his mash-ups!

British classical pianist Paul Barton lives in Thailand where he uses his talent to soothe the gentle giants at the animal sanctuary, Elephant’s World. Since discovering the sanctuary that’s home to over 30 old, sick, and handicapped elephants, Barton has visited the reserve a number of times to perform for the ailing elephants. Introducing the giants to the likes of Mozart, Bach, and Beethoven, he has been an immense source of comfort and relief for the animals.

This elephant’s name is Ampan. She is 80 years old and is blind in one eye and can barely see with the other. 80 years is very old indeed for an elephant; it’s about 10 years past the natural life span of an elephant in the wild.

Lam Duan is the name of this old blind elephant, and her name means “Tree with Yellow Flowers”. She has been blind most of her life.

Renée Zellweger stars as Judy Garland in the new movie “Judy” and to take on the role, she did what most people do and immersed herself in Judy Garland videos on YouTube.

She did all her own singing, too. Here she is singing “Over the Rainbow” as Judy:

Says Puddles Pity Party, “All those sweet critters out there, in need of forever homes, are yearning for kindness and safety and security. They want to know what love is. And we (you & me) could provide that for them. Please adopt.”
