A Star Emerges
One of our most beloved national traditions of singing the national anthem gets taken to a whole new level in this amazing video. A father and his baby share an incredible moment of stardom when they are caught on video singing the anthem to their heart’s content. This may be exactly what Francis Scott Key intended his admirers to do back when he wrote it in 1814.
The video starts off with an adorable smile from the baby in response to his dad’s aloof, albeit consistent singing. Her smile is so deliciously delightful that it’s hard not to follow suit and join in her display of pure joy. As the baby’s hands waver up and down in tandem with his father’s voice, we notice the baby talk start mimicking the lyrics in such a precise way it’s hard not to wonder how remarkably adept and talented this baby truly is.
She then bursts out with a huge smile as her eyes widen to show just how into it she is. I hope you’re watching Simon Cowell! This is truly a spectacle to watch as the baby is somehow perfectly syncing with daddy and somehow harmonizing perfectly. The father proceeds with, “Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,” as he watches his baby fondly compliment his actions.
The buildup intensifies with, “Oe’r the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?” and as everything culminates in the phrase, “and the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,” the baby erupts and lifts his hands to the sky almost as if conducting his own symphony. Daddy raises his voice a couple of octaves and the baby seems to be right there with him. The look of utter pleasure in his face really captures this intensely glorious moment.
Let Freedom Sing
As the crescendo furthers, the baby star begins cleverly clapping her hands and tapping the highchair as if almost to affirm that yes, there is proof in the night that the flag was indeed still there. The resemblance in key moments of this performance has us thinking what on earth kind of advanced baby food are they feeding this young lass?
The father’s deep voice starts to lapse down as the final part of the anthem phases in. In response, the baby wavers one last resounding assortment of baby talk and claps in the air to signal the ending of a stunning performance. Her slight frown in this segment says it all as she slowly starts to realize that the magic show might be coming to its finale.
The father proceeds with, “O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?” to end the duet. The baby star delivers an ecstatic smile in response as she recognizes daddy’s brilliance and holds her hands together in gratefulness. Trust me, little baby, you’re not the only one who is feeling thankful for such a heartwarming performance.
It’s hard to believe that a poem was written so long ago that has influenced every corner of this great country has turned to the centerpiece of creating such a marvelous video recording. The future looks ever so bright for this beautiful baby and we hope that she keeps elevating to even further heights.
Also, a huge shout-out and congratulations to this wonderful Dad in being such a great example of a role model and showing that one can never be too old to tune in to their inner-child.
