The king of rock n roll may no longer be among us today, but his spirit is truly well and alive inside a little boy.
Steven Converse and Jiyeon Jun’s son, Daniel, started singing Elvis Presley even before he could start reading or writing. When he was only 2 years old, he had memorized most of the words of Elvis’ hit “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Dad Converse, a staff sergeant in the U.S. Air Force and a musician said, “He’s always kind of shy about singing and stuff, but this is one song he really picked up on.”
Converse decided to hone his son’s music and decided to record Daniel singing in his recording studio. “I set up the camera because I wanted to kind of record like a family moment,” he explained. While Converse played the guitar, Daniel sang the song enthusiastically. “To hear him, just like, memorize the words and sing it by himself was … kind of a special moment for us,” the dad said.
Converse shared the clip to social media and no wonder the video quickly went viral online with more than 275,000 views.
Although Daniel who is just 3 years of age now is a born star, his dad is in no hurry to force his son into the music industry anytime soon. He says, “I think my role as a parent is just basically to expose him to as many things as possible and hope he picks up on something he’s passionate about and just support him,” he said.
This cute video of Daniel singing has made our day so much brighter and we hope your day is too.
