We all know that kids have a knack of absorbing everything around them and surprising adults with the knowledge that we don’t expect them to have. Depending on the situation, this fact could either be a good or bad thing. But for this family, it is definitely the former, as they were able to capture a precious moment in their son’s life that they will never forget.
This dad films the cutest video of his two-year-old singing an Elvis Presley classic, and it will surely melt the hearts of anyone who sees it!
The dad, Steven Converse is a guitarist who hails from Modesto, California. His 2-year-old son, Daniel, is usually around when he’s playing music at home, so it is expected that the toddler has picked up a few of his tunes along the way.
Yet, one day, their son gave them a beautiful surprise that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
Little Daniel suddenly started singing the lyrics to Elvis Presley’s classic, “Can’t Help Falling In Love”. Steven and his wife couldn’t believe what they were hearing!
“To hear him, just like, memorize the words and sing it by himself was… kind of a special moment for us,” Steven said.
Steven decides to encourage Daniel’s love for music and films his son’s performance as a way to keep this beautiful memory. Then, he brought him to his music studio, made him wear a pair of headphones, and began to play the song on his guitar for them to record.
Daniel began singing to the song and though he missed some of the lyrics, he got the melody perfectly! Steven uploaded the short clip to Facebook and it instantly went viral.
He wrote: “Daniel’s first time trying the mic when he was still just 2. Begged to sing some Elvis. This video is still a daily watch for us at our house.”
It was obvious that Daniel knew the song by heart. With his sweet voice, the little boy performed in a way that is so adorable, one would surely press the play button on the video over and over again!
At such a young age, Daniel was able to give the song justice in his own childish way. Hopefully, his love for music lasts until he grows much older. Good job to his parents for encouraging him!
