Everybody knows the name Elvis Presley. Also known as the “King of Rock and Roll”, this man is undeniably a legend in the music industry not only in the ’50s where he began his career but all throughout the decades, even until the 20th century!
His signature stance and white outfit have bridged generations and to this day his brand and his music are seen and heard. His influence is so great that even a 2-year-old boy who was still baby-talking actually learned and mastered a song of his.
Steve Converse, a musician and proud father, shared a video on Facebook showing his son Daniel as he sang using a microphone for the first time.
The kid is only 2 years old at the time and doesn’t even know how to talk properly and yet, he was belting out his version of Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling In Love”.
Instead of nursery rhymes, Daniel chose to sing a song that is way beyond his years. He may not know the lyrics exactly but he was able to sing in the song’s melody and his ability to sing to the beat is quite impressive for his age.
Little Daniel may be young, but he can certainly carry a tune. Of course, his short performance was far from perfect but he has tremendous potential of becoming a performing artist just like his Dad.
However, what’s truly amazing in this impromptu performance is that this child, despite his young age, can clearly appreciate a song that was written and performed by a man who lived probably even before his father was born.
“Can’t Help Falling In Love” was a song recorded by Elvis Presley in 1961 and it was part of his album entitled Blue Hawaii, the official soundtrack of Elvis Presley’s movie with the same title.
This song created such an impact to its listeners that numerous artists have created their own versions of the song over the years after it was initially released.
Some of the artists who have given new life to the song are Bob Dylan, Swedish pop group A-Teens as well as Tom Smothers, to name a few. It was such a beautiful song that touched the lives of many despite its simplicity. No matter how many artists sang and interpreted it, its effect on the listeners from different generations never changes.
This is actually the case for almost every song recorded by the King of Rock and Roll.
“Can’t Help Falling In Love” was only one of the many songs of Elvis Presley and whenever he released an album or single, it was expected to become a big hit.
Some of his other well-known songs are “Jailhouse Rock” and “Love Me Tender”. Elvis was such a versatile artist because he could sing both rock and mellow music effortlessly and amazingly. He also acted for some time and sang the official soundtracks of the films he was in. He was a bankable performer and his legacy in music and film lives on today, over four decades after he passed away.
Little Daniel must have loved the sweet melody of the King of Rock and Roll’s iconic song so much that it was etched in his young heart and mind. That’s why he requested to sing it the first time he got to use a microphone. The fact that the song is actually really simple and sincere made it possible for a little boy to perform and give meaning to it.
