During many of her concerts, singer Idina Menzel always asks the audience if any children want to come on stage and help sing her famous Disney tune 'Let It Go.'
But this time when Idina gave 11-year-old Luke Chacko the microphone, everyone was stunned to hear the voice that came out of this little boy. Luke's incredible vocal talent was heard by so many. He nailed ever word and every note! He even received a standing ovation from the entire crowd.
Luke clearly loves to sing and who knows in a few years we could be hearing him sing more and more. If the boy is this talented now, I can't wait to see how his voice sounds as he grows up!
With all of the technological advances of today’s world, it seems there is a lot out there to distract our younger generation. And it’s become a bit of a stereotype to picture the youth of today as totally self-consumed -- too busy posting selfies and updating social media statuses to be aware of what’s going on in the real world around them.
But take heart! God is still at work in our kids!
Kailen Young, a 17-year-old who works at a Hardee’s restaurant in Tennessee, is one of those kids. While outside of the restaurant, washing the windows, he noticed a sweet, elderly lady that could use a hand.
And so, the young man stopped what he was doing and took the time to walk the adorable Bobbi Clare to her car.
A passerby, David Yardley, was so touched by the scene, he stopped and snapped a photo, saying:
But David wasn’t the only one moved by Kailen’s actions. After David posted the photo to the Hardee’s Facebook page, it went viral, prompting Hardee’s to honor the boy with a $1,000 reward.
And if you didn’t already love this young man for his kindness, his humility is sure to make you a fan. Kailen has been completely surprised by all of the attention and praise. He doesn’t see where he did anything special, saying,
But to the sweet lady whom he helped, Kailen’s kindness is something very special indeed. She says
And I have to agree. Hats off to Kailen, who is sure to have one proud mama! Let’s all try to send out a little more love and kindness today. Because, can you ever really have too much kindness?
