As a firefighter for more than 30 years, Marc is a life-long country music fan. His favorite country singer being Garth Brooks he had just one final wish. He wanted to sing his favorite Garth song…”The Dance”.

Marc Wright spent three years battling cancer before doctors discovered that it had spread to his liver, two lymph nodes, and into his lungs.

It was then that, surrounded by family and friends, he requested to have his buddy play the guitar while he sang his favorite song.

As his friend softly played the guitar, Marc sung his heart out in this emotional performance while his loved ones watched, tears streaming down their faces.

The video quickly became a trending topic on social media and even captured the attention of Brooks himself, who spoke highly of Wright in a recent Facebook Live video session.

“When you find a good voice for a good song, all of a sudden it takes on its own voice, and I’ve never heard ‘The Dance’ sung like this guy sings it.”

Update: Just five days after he sang this beautiful rendition of the dance, Marc Wright passed away on January 29th, surrounded by loved ones.

Watch the video below of Marc’s final performance of his favorite country song.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this time.
