If you've ever been brought to tears by listening to a sweet angelic voice sing a heart-wrenching tune, then you know just how this 10-month-old baby feels. The little girl clearly has music in her soul, as her reaction to her mom singing to her is just unbelievably touching. She really doesn't appear to be a baby in this video -- her expressions are more like some whiskey-fueled blues singer baring her soul in the smoky corner of a two-bit piano lounge.
Ontario baby Marie-Lynne Leroux watches her mom Amanda sing Rod Stewart's "My Heart Can't Tell You No" with an expression that belies her short time on this planet. Check it out:
I don't know about you, but mom's rendition had me tearing up too -- but so did darling little Marie-Lynne's expression.
Of course, you know how YouTube is. A lot of people are claiming child abuse -- saying Marie-Lynne was clearly scared (??!!), so the mom should have stopped singing.
Are you serious, people? The girl doesn't start screaming. Those are the types of tears you get when you see a sad commercial -- or hear a sad song. This baby has soul, I tell you! Plus, she smiles when she's not crying. It's a bittersweet thing, you see.
Did you think babies were capable of this kind of deep feeling? I think it might say something about certain tones affecting our tear ducts and pulling our heart strings -- because I doubt very much the baby knows what momma is singing.
She does, however, know heartbreak when she hears it.
Do you think this baby is enjoying the performance or is she scared?
