SEATTLE — A group of 12s at a memory care facility in Seattle wrote and performed a song about the Seahawks as part of their music therapy.

The song is set to “Oh what a beautiful morning.”

An employee at Aegis at Northgate says the singing helps dementia patients maintain their cognitive goals.

"We're addressing social goals, motor goals, cognitive goals and particularly with dementia we are addressing continuing their cognitive goals and maintaining their cognitive skills as long as we can so that they'll have a better quality of life," said Kaylee Tilton. "And we do it all through music, so it feels like fun, it feels like games, but we're doing some serious neurological work."

Tilton said a resident first came up with the idea.

The group wrote the song before the NFC Championship Game -- confident that the Hawks were going to the Super Bowl.
