Move over, Ariel. There’s a new mermaid in town, and she’s beyond adorable. Claire Ryann Crosby, a 3-year-old from Utah, is blowing away everyone who sees her rendition of “Part of Your World” from The Little Mermaid.
From whozits to whatzits to thingamabobs, she nails each and every word of the song perfectly in her sweet little voice. It’s already been viewed more than 2 million times since her dad posted the video earlier this month. Once you see it for yourself, you’ll see why.
The sweetest part is at the end when she asks, “Did I do it, Dad?” Yes, you did Claire. Yes, you did.
Let’s face it: Children’s music can make any sane parent… much less sane as it’s played over and over and over. Even so, the sound of our children’s voices singing is one of the most heartwarming sounds in life, full of energy and innocence. Ours might not all have voices that sound quite as angelic as little Claire’s does, but the sound is still sweet to parents’ ears nonetheless. Well, at least usually — there may be an exception after the 2 billionth time your daughter belts out “Let It Go.”
Hopefully this isn’t the last we see of Claire. There are plenty more Disney tunes we’d love to hear her sing.
