9-Year-Old Boy With Down Syndrome Singing Whitney Houston Captures Hearts of Millions
A video of a 9-year-old boy with Down syndrome singing a Whitney Houston song has captured the internet by storm.
“Is this boy not the sweetest thing ever?! He loves to sing … Whitney would be proud #getthatboyamic #mynephewDanerocks,” wrote Jeanne Miller of her nephew, Dane.
Her video had nearly 200,000 shares and 90,000 reactions on Facebook. About 5 million people have viewed the clip.
“He is just very vibrant,” Miller of Prosper, Texas, told ABC News. “He’s very high-functioning so if he hears music, it’s just something that sticks with him. He’s very proud [of the video]. He just smiles and giggles.”
If you’re wondering, he was singing Houston’s 1993 hit “I Have Nothing” from “The Bodyguard.”
