Today, it has become common to hide our age as if it’s something to be ashamed of. And then there’s those people that put age limitations of certain things, implying that past a certain age we’re too old for the fun things in life.
Well someone who is breaking through both of these barriers is a wonderful lady called Dorothy Williams, who at the grand age of 90 has a great lesson for us all.
She appeared on “America’s Got Talent” and surprised everybody with her act. By the end of her amazing performance she had won everyone over and got a response that left her open-mouthed.
Some people simply want to live their lives, regardless of age, which is so inspiring! Dorothy Williams got up on stage and proudly told everyone her age and then announced that she was going to dance.

On stage, in front of Simon Cowell, the rest of the jury and a packed crowd, she gets ready to perform. Then the song “The Stripper” originally composed by David Rose and his orchestra, starts playing and the whole crowd is left open-mouthed.
But Dorothy starts doing her strip tease confidently and in such a fun way. Despite the reaction, her amazing self-esteem and sense of humor wins everyone over.
