Fans of the television show The Voice will remember Chris Mann, the sultry songster who placed fourth in the second season of the popular singing competition. He's also appeared in several episodes of Glee, recorded his own album, and toured with India Arie and Idina Menzel.

But it's Mann's latest work that is sure to touch the lives of caregivers around the world.

A family connection with Alzheimer's disease inspired Mann to collaborate with the national non-profit research institute, Cure Alzheimer's Fund (CAF), to write and record a single aimed at raising awareness about the realities of Alzheimer's disease.

In the music video for the song "Remember Me," poignant lyrics sung by Mann combine with a powerful performance by ballerina Cristina Dooling to create an impact that is certain to elicit tears and chills from anyone who is familiar with the complex challenges of Alzheimer's:

"Remember Me" can be downloaded (all proceeds go to CAF) on Amazon, iTunes and GooglePlay.

Remember Me

Written by Chris Mann, Laura Mann, Rudy Tanzi, Willy Beaman, Dora Kovacs

I need someone to hold, to hold on for me
To what I can’t seem to hold on to
The life we used to live, is slipping through my fingertips
Like a thread that’s unraveling

I suppose that nothing lasts forever, and everything is lost in its time.

When I can’t find the words that I'm trying to speak
When I don’t know the face in the mirror I see
When I feel I’m forgotten and lost in this world
Won’t you please remember me
Remember me

I know there'll come a day, when I have gone away
And the memory of me will fade
But darling think of me, and who I use to be
And I'll be right there with you again

I hope I’m one thing worth not forgetting
Tell me that you’ll never let me go

When I can’t find the words that I'm trying to speak
When I don’t know the face in the mirror I see
When I feel I’m forgotten and lost in this world
Won’t you please remember me
Remember me

I hope I’m one thing worth not forgetting
Tell me that you’ll never let me go

When I can’t find the words that I'm trying to speak
When I don’t know the face in the mirror I see
When I feel like I’m lost and alone in this world
Won’t you please remember me
Remember me
