Oh. My. Gosh. We understand that many, many people have affectionate and deep feelings for singer Ariana Grande. She’s proven herself to be the kind of sensitive, thoughtful and talented young lady even tiny babies can’t resist.
All the feelings
The young singer just posted what is possibly the cutest and most emotional clip we have ever seen on Instagram. The video features a baby watching Ariana performing Somewhere Over The Rainbow at Manchester’s One Love Benefit Concert earlier this week.
As Ariana beautifully belts out the much-loved Judy Garland classic from The Wizard Of Oz, the baby is transfixed. She (we think she’s a she!) stares at the screen, listening intently as Ariana sings to the assembled huge crowd.
An adorable bottom lip begins to quiver, a little chin begins to wobble and soon giant tears are rolling down this very, very emotional baby’s cheeks as she’s overcome by the power of the performance.
All the hearts
Ariana captioned the post:
“♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡ ♡”
And we are inclined to agree because this baby has one hundred percent captured our hearts too! Not only is this baby grappling with all the feelings, she seems to be harnessing the heartfelt energy all the way from Manchester in her quite substantial tears.
This tiny girl has definitely struck her own chord with Ariana’s followers. They were wiping their own tears away as they left comments on the singer’s Instagram, sharing their thoughts on Feelings Baby and her Somewhere Over The Rainbow response.
“That kid was all of us,” one fan wrote in solidarity.
“When you hear your crush singing and you can’t hold the tears in,” another commented.
“This is my favorite video ever. GOODBYE,” a follower confirmed quite understandably.
The video, which has been viewed over 8 million times since Ariana posted it earlier today, is a reminder of the power of music – and of the fact that babies are little sponges, soaking up the things that are going on around them in a very primal way, even if they don’t always fully understand them.
