A North Philadelphia man is celebrating 101 years of life.

James Washington is a World War II veteran. He says if you want to live a long happy life, there is one person in particular you should take advice from.

"My advice to them is listen to your grandma. It's the greatest thing I could tell them. Listen to grandma. Grandma's been through it. She knows," Washington said.

Washington's family says he once dated 1950s and 60s soul singer Etta James.

Happy birthday, James!
