Listen to KMZU’s Ashley Johnson interview Administrator, Chris Brown, of the Shirkey Nursing and Rehab Center.
American music talent Glen Campbell, who gave the world hits such as “Rhinestone Cowboy”, and “Wichita Lineman”, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011. The final tour, scheduled to be two weeks long, eventually developed into a grand tour of 151 shows which was eventually turned into a documentary. “I’ll Be Me” is the documentary of the triumphant, final tour of country music artist Glen Campbell, and his battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Featured in the film will also be many who know Glen, such as Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, Paul McCartney, Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, and others, along with rare footage, and new performances of Glen’s music
Shirkey Nursing and Rehabilitation in Richmond Missouri is sponsoring a private showing of that documentary on May 30th at 7:30 p.m. The event is completely underwritten by the Shirkey Center, making the tickets completely free.
Chris Brown, an administrator at Shirkey, says the documentary was not released to the general public, but their goal was to take the well-known figure of Glen Campbell and tell the story of his battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Representatives from the Alzheimer’s Association will be in attendance for a question and answer session after the film.
Also present, will be Glen Campbell’s wife and daughter who will perform music as well as field questions at the conclusion of the documentary.
