The Drifters helped make a late fan's funeral even more moving by recording a special version of a beloved track to be played at the memorial.
British fan Rose Hansford had loved a rendition of Il Divo's Mama that the Under the Boardwalk singers performed at a gig in England in 2010.
After she passed away from breast cancer earlier this year (11), her daughter, Stephanie Clifton, tried to find the recording, and when she failed, contacted the band to ask where she could find a copy.
Clifton was left stunned when they put together a special recording of the track and sent it straight back so she could play it as family and friends gathered at her final farewell.
Stephanie tells Britain's The Sun, "It made my hair stand on end. Mum would have been so pleased."
The Drifters frontman Michael Williams says, "It was the least we could do."
