Sometimes you just need a little bit of joy to get you through the day.
While the other kids waited patiently for their cue to sing, a young girl in Tennessee was swept up by the joyful sound of the church piano. Her name is Loren Patterson and she danced like no one was watching!
It was Loren’s first time performing at the First Baptist Church with her choir and she definitely was not nervous.
She owned that stage! “Loren singing in choir this morning. In case you can’t find her she’s the one in pink and brown,” Patterson wrote in her facebook post.
In the video, Loren just keeps rocking as the music goes on, even when the children’s singing part is completed. Loren is carefree—dancing, tapping and moving to the beat of the music.
After her mother, Jennifer Patterson, shared the video on her Facebook page of her daughter performing dozens of people far and wide started reaching out to her. The beautiful spirit of Loren has touched so many people around the world, the family says they’ve been inundated by heartfelt stories from some who claim the video has changed their lives.
When she’s at home, “she sings all the time, she’s always dancing around, she makes up her own songs … That’s just her personality; she’s so bubbly and she’s been that way all her life.” says her mother.
As of Nov. 7, the video had been viewed more than 40 million times, and comments began pouring in about how inspiring her carefree shimmying has been to watch.
“I noticed some people making faces and something like that, and my husband (Mike) was in the audience,” said her mother, Jennifer Patterson. “So I saw him laughing and I didn’t know why, so I just continued singing and I didn’t know what was going on.”
Watch Loren’s magical performance in the video below, and share to spread more joy!
