A VIDEO of Wanneroo 90-year-old Danny Doran singing in a Joondalup park has garnered nearly 200,000 views and international media attention.

Mr Doran’s son Kevin posted the video on social media two weeks ago and it attracted 100,000 views within a day.

He said his daughter took the video of them performing in Central Park.

“I just thought it was good because he’s always been a bit of a singer,” he said.

The younger Doran said he wanted friends and family from their former home in Liverpool in the UK to share the video but did not expect it to become as popular as it did, with the Liverpool Echo featuring the story.

“It’s been really positive.”
