Although his mother, Sophie Gareau, told Global News that she hoped the first song her son would hear would be Somewhere Over the Rainbow, it wasn’t to be.

Gareau shared a video on her Facebook page of the moment her son heard the song Ma Baker by Boney M.

“Incredible moment this weekend: Auguste heard music for the first time, thanks to his brand new ABI (1 and a half months post activation)!!!,” she wrote.

“Who would’ve thought it would be Ma Baker by Boney M! I won’t complain, this is simply amazing!!!”
