Ryan Tubridy has shared a touching tribute to the late Glen Campbell.

The legendary musician Glen Campbell passed away on Tuesday after a six year long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Despite being diagnosed in 2011, he continued to perform at the 2012 Grammy Awards ceremony and hosted a “Goodbye Tour” in the same year.

In 2014, he became a patient at an Alzheimer’s care home before sadly passing away three days ago.

Celebrities from across the globe have paid tribute to the multi-award winning artist, including his former partner Tanya Tucker who released a song titled “Forever Loving You” in his honour. A portion of the proceeds raised from the sale of the song is to benefit the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

RTÉ’s Ryan Tubridy shared a happy memory with the singer following his passing, posting a picture of himself (sporting an earring) and Michael Kealy meeting the American singer.
