One evening in 2013, little Adelaide couldn’t sleep because of some fireworks going off outside. So dad, Benjamin Ames, reached for the bright pink ukulele he had bought her and started playing “Tonight You Belong to Me” in the hopes of calming her down. What resulted is one of the most charming and hilarious versions of this song we’ve ever seen!

From shushing dad to listen for “boom”‘ to telling him what part to sing, Adelaide inadvertently steals the show and wins over her internet audience. But, without the sweet and lullaby-like strumming of her dad, this wonderful example of the power of music would not be possible.
