Cup of Butter

My three and a half year old daughter is something of an Aldrine Guerrero fan from listening to his album while riding on my car. Buttercup is her favorite song from Aldrine. Today I got her to take a video singing this song while I played backup. She was only willing to sing a few times (it's hard to get a three year old to keep interest in something for an extended period of time) but we did manage to get one decent take. I wonder if she's the youngest Aldrine fan out there?

Anyway, here it is.

Wow. Very impressive! She has timing and is in key! She's a natural.

Also, I just want to say how much I love seeing a family with music as something that is engaged in, not just listened to. I try to play for my nieces and nephews whenever I get the chance.

Great video!

Thanks guys for your comments. Yes, as a dad, it's always special to do something like this with my kids. It was certainly very enjoyable even if it was just a couple of minutes. :)

This is great. I am amazed that she knows all the words. A budding musician. She needs her own mahalo brightly colored soprano uke now. Then we'll see what she strums up!
