The bond between a father and daughter is a very special thing, and this video from a woman named Kr Morantte proves it 100% — which is probably why this video went viral over the recent Father’s Day weekend.
Monratte and her father sing together regularly, but this time she secretly filmed the duet on her computer to share with others. The YouTube page described the scene like this:
Kr Morantte’s dad didn’t know that her daughter was filming their jamming together. It’s pretty cool that there are still father and daughter bonding these days. They sang “The Closer I Get to You”. Did they inspire you? Share your thoughts below.
The song is a deliciously slow, love-filled ballad, but what made this video go viral is the pure joy shared between these two people as they sing. Yes, we see her smiling because she knows the moment is being filmed, but the honesty in their voices is a real joy to watch. If you have the three minutes, it will make your day to see these two in action.
In case you’re curious about the song itself, “The Closer I Get to You” was originally sung by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway. It spent two weeks as number one on the Hot Soul Singles chart in April 1978, and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100. It became a gold album in the United States on May 1978, and one of their most familiar duets.
