The viral video of the father-daughter duo performance to Maroon 5 song, “Girls Like You”, where the little girl confidently lip-syncs along with her father, is a typical illustration of how a girl child feels knowing that she has a dad who got her back.
Myla, a two-year-old toddler had this post-bath performance with her dad to the song while her mum, Trina Wesson stayed on the camera to captured the beautiful moment.
You can literarily touch the bond and affection between the two as they stare at each other through the mirror, singing and having fun. No wonder Joseph Addison says “there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as that of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters, there is something which there are no words to express”. Indeed, Myla’s dad eyes are full of those wordless expressions.
Trina Wesson who shared the video on Twitter tagged it “A little post bath lip sync battle last night. Myla is one heck of a lip syncer.” The video had since its release got more than 15 million views with more than 86,000 comments and the reason is obvious. It is so adorable watching the little girl who doesn’t know the song lyrics do a lip-sync with so much enthusiasm. Her facial expressions, gestures, and emphasis on the familiar part of the lyric speak volume about her.
Here are the lyrics of the song the little expert lip-syncer dramatically articulate while being rocked back and forth in her father’s arms. “I need a girl like you, yeah yeah. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah yeah yeah. I need a girl like you, yeah yeah.” Her intense gestures are next to nothing and are bound to make everyone laugh. Her father couldn’t escape that in the video. Only kids’ haters would see such video and skip it.
One of the most remarkable audience engagement with the video is its retweet from Maroon 5’s lead singer, Adam Levine. His engagement with the video is a show of his approval and love for little Myla and her performance.
Happenings around the little lip syncer and performer may not be out of the media anytime soon, as Trina has gone ahead to create an Instagram page for her. She wants to keep Myla friends and family updated about events around her. Her fans are sure to constantly visit her page to see what more she has got to give.
Meanwhile, Myla isn’t the only child anymore. She recently had a little brother, Sawyer who would probably join the signing team to make a trio. But for now, he is being cared for by big sister Myla, who is sure to lip-sync bedtime songs alongside mummy and daddy. She might grow to become little of Sawyer’s music and performance role model.
Now that she has a little brother to care for, her next performance might revolve around him.
