The mother told TVA that she sings out loud at home because she was embarrassed to sing in public. When her daughter was 8 months old, she began to notice different emotional reactions depending on the song.
“I realized that happy songs made her smile and sad ones gave tears to her eyes and this song in particular: ‘My Heart can’t tell you no’ by Rod Stewart. One day, I decided to film her and you see the results ” Amanda Leroix said.
The young girl stopped crying after the song was finished.
