Viewers watch the girl grow older as her dad continues to play for her. At one point, she’s playing herself. Here’s the heart-tugging video.
A father’s video featuring his daughter since she was born is going viral for capturing hearts everywhere. The video shows the father, who is a pianist, playing the piano for his daughter since she was born to age five. The sweet moments he has filmed over the years are now taking the internet by storm.
On October 19, Paul Barton posted to his YouTube channel a video titled “Daddy-Daughter 20 Piano Moments,” featuring his daughter Emilie. There’s something different about his video, though, as internet users watch Emilie grow from an adorable tiny baby to a beautiful five-year-old girl. The video, which features clips throughout the years of Emilie’s life, shows Barton playing the piano to his daughter. The 17-minute video starts off with Barton playing the piano as Emilie sits in a baby carrier he is wearing. According to Classic fm, in the second clip, Barton plays Barber’s ‘Adagio for Strings’ with one hand as he cradles his baby girl in his other arm. Emilie can be seen sleeping as her father beautifully masters the piece. In one part of the series, Barton even plays a tiny piano that could be small enough for Emilie to play. Emilie sits in his lap as her dad plays the piano perfectly.
The video continuously shows Emilie growing like a weed, and even turning into a music lover herself. One clip shows Emilie sitting on top of the piano, surrounded by books and flashcards, coloring. Tiny feet dangle over her father’s hands as he gracefully moves his fingers across the piano keys for another song. Other clips show Emilie sitting by her father as she clutches a stuffed animal, and she even gets in on the piano fun, helping her father play a song. The two move outdoors to play the piano as Barton plays music from Brahms, Ravel, and Beethoven. As Emilie gets older, she begins to move her hands to the sound of her father’s piano playing, almost as if she is conducting. She once again helps her dad in a song as she plays on part of the piano and he plays on another part.
The video has more than 10,000 views on Barton’s YouTube channel, but on social media, it has been viewed more than 3 million times. Many viewers say the video is inspiring, enjoyable to watch, and they loved seeing Barton share the gift of music with his daughter.
