The heartwarming video shows the multi-award-winning singer, Legend, playing a piano duet with his one-year-old – and it’s simply adorable.
The uplifting song originally featured in the 1959 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, The Sound of Music, and is still popular with music fans today – largely thanks Julie Andrews stunning version for the 1965 film.
In the video – posted by Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen – we see the American singer, songwriter, producer and actor take a seat beside his one-year-old son, Miles, to play the piano duet.
As the tiny toddler alternates between a B flat and a C, his father watches on and improvises with beautifully rich chords, in his distinct jazz style.
Then, Legend sings the words we all know and love: “Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes.
“Silver-white winters that melt into springs, these are a few of my favourite things.”
The heartwarming moment was captured by the singer’s wife, Chrissy Teigen, who later shared the footage on Instagram with the caption “stop everything” – and we can totally see why.
John Legend has taken home an impressive number of awards in his career – including ten Grammy Awards, the Academy Award for ‘Best Original Song’ in 2015 for co-writing ‘Glory’, and a Tony Award for co-producing the Broadway show, Jitney.
