The artist had spoken about his mom's health status sharing that his mom couldn't talk, stand on her own or eat herself. 

Nevertheless, she still has the dancing spirit whenever a song pops up. Despite the disease, she recognizes him. 

She smiles and makes a sound that indicates she loves him as per the musician who loves his mom to the core. 

Bruce claims it to be the most powerful than memory itself. Continuing the talk, Bruce even praised that it's an essential part of his mother's spirit and who she is. 

The trust she had invested in and lived her life to the fullest even though she suffered a lot, she continues it with this moment as if it's the reality that life's beauty had never deserted her, he loves her, Bruce added.
