Plenty of artists have been discovered on YouTube (ahem, Justin Bieber), launching wildly successful careers. Despite her young age, 2-year-old Makena knows it’s finally her time to shine. The tot sings her little heart out to Adele’s “Someone Like You”–and we think it’s the best cover yet!
Add a pint-sized puppy and an adorable wide-eyed tot, and you get this too-cute-to-be-real high-quality home video. And If this doesn’t make you want to get an English Bulldog pup, then I don’t know what will. Watch the duo as they go about their day…being cute.
There’s nothing worse than a crying baby. Wait–there’s nothing worse than a crying baby on a long car ride. You’re in a confined space with no Spongebob Squarepants or Yo Gabba Gabba! episodes in sight (assuming you don’t own a fancy-schmancy car that has a built-in television screen), so life seems to be pretty much over by that point.
What is a frustrated parent to do? Take a cue from this mom, who cleverly plays Florence + The Machine’s hit song “Dog Days are Over” to soothe her son, Embry. And he just won’t stop wiggling and dancing in his seat. Cute!
Will you be popping in a dance tune anytime soon to calm your little one? Do you have a funny/adorable way to cure your kid’s crying?
Don’t you wish your first on-the-lips kiss was captured on camera? This was the case for Elliott and Bowie on May 1, 2011. The cute couple kiss on the lips for the first time, and congratulate each other with an energetic high five. Hit play and catch a glimpse of a sweet, innocent moment!
It’s likely your child doesn’t prefer Iron Maiden and SlipKnot over the Wiggles and Justin Bieber. But wouldn’t it be kind of adorable if she did? Adorable because it’s something totally out of her element, and, honestly, it would probably bring you back to your teenage, angst-ridden days. And who doesn’t love to reminisce? Check out this week’s ‘Webtastic’ pick—a “Hardcore” song performed by Juliet, a loveable eight-year-old girl with a whole lot to say. Enjoy!
In the wake of the devastating series of suicides – all rooted in bullying – that has swept the nation over the past few months, ‘tween singing duo MICHAEL AND MARISA are speaking up.
The Boston-based siblings wrote their song “The Same” after reading about Phoebe Prince, a 15-year-old Massachusetts teen, who, as result of bullying, committed suicide. Michael and Marisa released an acoustic version of the song ,off the recent EP It’s Like This, on YouTube to encourage their peers (the pair is 12 and 13, respectively) to put an end to this mean streak.
Their message: If you see something, do something. This month, the duo will spread this message further in support of the Pacer Center’s National Center for Bullying Prevention by donating funds to the organization. The Build-A-Bear Workshop Website is also playing their song during October, Internet Safety Month.
“We feel that being 12 and 13 and being in middle school, we understand kids can be kids,” Marisa explains in the video. “For kids to tell kids to stop bullying is much more powerful than for grownups to say “stop bullying,” because it feels like a lecture – like a “clean your room” kind of thing. But for kids to tell kids is just…we just feel like that can change everything.”
