Little Boy With Down Syndrome Belts Out Whitney Houston Classic, Stuns Millions

The video has been viewed 22 million times, and it's easy to see why!

We've all been there. You're driving in your car, going about your day when suddenly your favourite song comes on. In a moment you're mentally transported to a stage in front of thousands of screaming fans, belting out the lyrics complete with over-the-top hand gestures and facial expressions. For most of us, however, this performance remains unseen by the rest of the world (except, perhaps, for a passenger in a neighboring car who, at this point, is hosing themselves at the rock star you were destined never to become). However, for one 9-year-old boy from Prosper, Texas, his adorable rock star moment was caught on camera and has now been viewed by over 22 million people around the world. 

Dane Miller, who was born with Down Syndrome, is a big Whitney Houston fan. So when her 1993 hit, I Have Nothing, came on the radio one day during a family car ride, his aunt couldn't help but capture the boy's passionate rendition.

"He's been musical since around two years' old," his mother, Dana Miller, told Inside Edition.  "He's been playing the drums. He sings. He loves music. He puts his whole heart into everything he does."

And it clearly shows! Check out little Dane's powerful performance in the video below.
