There's many reasons why Adam Alvarez chose Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" to sing to his mother on Sunday. In many ways, Alvarez said he is raising himself up from tragedy.
Alvarez devoted two songs to his mother, Delia Alvarez, during an intimate performance at the chapel of Lovelace Women's Hospital, where Ms. Alvarez is a patient.
It has been two weeks since Alvarez, the choir director at St. Jude Thaddeus Church has performed in front of an audience.
"I'm still anxious about returning," Alvarez said.
