WASHINGTON (WJZ) 4/25/2013—An emotional moment in Washington, D.C. The daughter of countrymusic legend Glen Campbell testified on Capitol Hill that her dad is struggling with Alzheimer’s and it may soon silence his music.

Country music legend Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s almost two years ago. On Wednesday he traveled to Capitol Hill with his daughter Ashley, who fought back tears as she opened up to U.S. senators about her father’s struggle with the disease.

“It’s hard to come to the realization that someday my dad might look at me and I will be absolutely nothing to him,” said Ashley Campbell, daughter.
