Little boy passionately sings ‘Better Than Blessed’ in car

May 22nd, 2020

There’s nothing cuter than hearing a small child sing his or her heart out. Especially when they don’t think anyone’s paying attention, it’s so adorable. Sometimes, parents catch their kids singing in their bedroom. But other times, they choose to sing in the car. And thanks to moms and dads who share these special occasions, we get to share in the joy.

Still in a car seat

While driving one day, a small boy sits strapped in his car seat. As a fan of gospel music, his mother started to play a song on the radio. As the music begins, the child’s eyes get big and bright.

It’s one of his favorites

The song playing was “Better Than Blessed.” Originally recorded by Louise “Candy” Davis, this song has become popular among both gospel and secular fans. Not only is the music beautiful but the lyrics are powerful.

Fantastic organ music

When this song starts, you first hear beautiful church organ music. As it plays, the little boy turns his head to look out the window of the car. You can sense that something wonderful is about to happen…and it does.

Right on cue

The version of the song played in the video features a male vocalist with a deep, rich tone. The second he sings the words, “I’m blessed,” the little boy joins in. From there, he keeps on singing with all his might despite being so young and small.

It doesn’t matter that he’s not on key

He’s awake now

When the video first starts, this adorable child looks a little bit on the sleepy side. But now with the song blaring away on the radio, he’s wide awake. He wouldn’t missing singing along for anything in the world.

This boy knows almost all the words

As the song continues, “I’m blessed better than blessed praise the Lord,” he keeps on singing. While he’s not as strong on some of the other lyrics like “I may not have houses and wealth – I may not have all my strength and health,” boy, when the “I’m blessed better than blessed” part starts, his voice becomes loud and clear.

Teaching through music

Kids, especially young ones like this boy, are influenced so easily. It’s wonderful that his mom introduced him to gospel music. This song offers a great lesson about being thankful even when you don’t have everything you want.

Too cute for words

Watching this small child sing such a grown-up song is truly amazing. His facial expressions are the best. No, he probably doesn’t understand all the words but he’s got the most important ones down pat. He’s really into this.
