Mobile concerts lift spirits through song

Social distancing isn't stopping Christina Spann from giving the gift of music to her neighbors via rolling concerts. WLBT's Roslyn Anderson reports.

Christina Spann is cheering up her neighbors through mobile concerts, filling the air with tunes that have people getting off their couches and dancing their cares away.

“I have always loved making people happy,” she says.

Spann says she didn’t like the anguish and insecurity she saw while walking Sunday, and she began to sing.
