Music is a universal language, one that can be understood, felt, and enjoyed by all, thus making it the language of the “soul.” Every mother has her own way of bonding with her child, and in turn, they respond in the most amazing ways.
Michelle Figueroa-Cardenas chose a beloved Christian hymn called “Give me Jesus,” a 2006 song by Jeremy Camp, to sing to her little son. As soon as she started singing, baby Owen’s face lit up in pure joy and adulation.
Touched by the little boy’s sweet expression, Michelle decided to post the video on social media, as she “never wanted to forget the way Owen was looking at me.”

The mommy-son duo is seen locked in an embrace as she cradles and rocks him. Owen’s eyes are fixed upon his mamma as he listens patiently to the soothing sound of her beautiful voice.
Michelle is rewarded with a beautiful smile. The video has taken the internet by storm since it was posted. The lovely mother has also received an astounding response from around the world.
One user commented, “Still one of my favorite clips 😍.”
Another one said, “He is the cutest and sweetest. The love and joy on his face is a priceless treasure. I can’t watch it enough. I have always loved that song too. God bless y’all in every way.”
“This is really the evidence of our connection to Love…so beautifull!! THANK YOU for sharing with us!” another Facebook user commented.
Overwhelmed by the comments, Michelle wrote in a post, “I love the fact that my sweet boy’s face has made so many people happy.”
The song is surely an excellent choice, as it contains the eternal values, and the video is an example of the precious bond that a mother shares with her baby. We see little Owen soaking up each word with utmost admiration and happiness.
Missing my Owen this morning….this is the longest we've been apart from each other. I can't wait to see him tonight…
