There’s a video that’s circulating that shows just how strong a bond between a mother and her child really is. A good parent can see their child struggling or feeling anxious and know just what they have to do to help them out.
Rhonda Whitney went to go watch her daughter’s school talent show and was recording the performances when she captured something pretty special.
One young girl had taken to the stage to sing Andra Day’s hit “Rise Up” but halfway through, the little girl hit a wall. She forgot her lines and froze up in front of the audience. But she wasn’t left hanging for long. Bring on super-mom!
All of a sudden, the little girl’s mom’s voice could be heard as she started singing to help her nervous daughter out. Emotions are high!
“At my daughter’s talent show last night, this young lady got scared and stopped singing. What her mom (Shaye Washington) did, had me in tears and i cry every time I watch it.”
The young girl’s mom starts singing
Shaye Washington, the mother in question noticed her daughter got stage fright and froze on stage but she wasn’t going to leave her hanging there. So Shaye did something truly beautiful which left a tear in my eye – she started singing with her.
The silence was uncomfortable but when her mom powerfully belts out the lyrics, everyone was suddenly put at ease – especially Shaye’s daughter. This is a true parental hero.
“I looked over and there she was walking to the stage. We cried the minute she started singing. I looked around and I wasn’t alone,” she states. “When they finished we all started clapping and hollering. I don’t even know where they went.”
Ms Washington posted on her Facebook after the video had gone viral explaining that her parental instincts kicked in and she did what she believed any mother would do.
“I wanted to teach my daughter perseverance. I am so grateful for all of the love I am receiving from strangers because sometimes I am hard on myself as a mom and think I’m not doing enough so all of the kind words are definitely a breath of fresh air.”
This woman is a true hero and an inspiration to parents everywhere. Never be afraid, love your children and help them be the best versions of themselves.
