A heartwarming video has emerged showing the adorable moment when a two-year-old boy born with Down syndrome starts talking with the help of music. His mother, Amanda Bowman Gray, witnessed the power of music when she saw her daughter playing guitar and singing to her brother. Moments later, the sweet boy happily joins in and sings along, reacting to his family’s voices for the very first time. It’s a miracle!

There is something very special about the bond between siblings and judging by this video, these two have so much love for one another. This sweet moment was caught on camera on January 15 and shows the amazing bond this big sister and her brother with Down syndrome have!

Amanda wrote that her son Bo only knew how to say 12 words, and in this video, Bo can be heard singing the words to ‘You Are My Sunshine’ along with his sister, picking up new words as the lyrics go. Amazing! Every word he has learned has been through music and singing, which is incredible!

In addition, this song is very special to this family because Amanda and her husband Caleb sang it to Bo when he was recovering in the hospital from heart surgery. This tune has become Bo’s theme song.

Watch as Amanda’s 11-year-old daughter, Lydia, plays the guitar and sings to Bo and witness the power of music therapy. As Lydia is playing and singing, Bo decides to join in and starts to sing along. What a wonderful moment!

There is no doubt that Bo and Lydia make the sweetest singing pair and it is amazing how music helped Bo progress in words and expand his vocabulary.

Apparently, this loving big sister was looking after her little baby brother while their mom was in the shower so she decided to make things fun and grabbed her guitar and started singing to Bo. That is when the sweetest duet started. As Bo starts to sing the words along with Lydia he puts the biggest smile on his face.
