What's the best way to steal the heart of people all around the world? Well, if you're a dad like Dave with plenty of talent and you have an adorable kid who loves to sing like Claire, you've pretty much got the recipe. The Ellen Show welcomed a father-daughter singing duo to the show to chat about how the video came about. The duo even gave a performance for the audience and viewers at home.
DeGeneres gave the audience a little background on the viral video that has been viewed over 150 million times in the last week. She then welcomed Dave and his daughter Claire to the stage. Claire is just four-years-old and said she just started singing a week ago. Dave and everyone else knew that wasn't the case but she's so adorable it didn't matter. Claire said she loved singing because you can "sing so much."
Taylor Swift and Rachel Platten are Claire's favorite artists. Dave said he showed her a video of the song "You've Got A Friend In Me" from Toy Story and Claire just latched on to it. She wanted to record the song and Dave figured his YouTube channel would be the perfect place for it. Meanwhile, Claire chatted about her little brother who is almost as tall as him. She seems to think bananas and sleep has a lot to do with that.
If that wasn't enough cuteness for you, Claire and Dave gave an incredible performance of "You've Got A Friend In Me."
