A heartbreaking video of a 4-year-old boy singing to his baby sister who passed away earlier this year has gone viral.
Alex who lives in San Antonio, Texas was filmed singing “Remember Me” from the movie “Coco” to his young sister Ava Lynn who died at 4 months old after being diagnosed with hydronephrosis, a condition that affects the kidney, reported ABC News.
My son singing "Remember Me" from the movie "Coco" to his baby sister, Ava, who we lost this past May.
He's only 4 years old and he understands. He didn't even know he was being recorded. He just wanted to sing to her for her 1st birthday!
