There’s a good chance that you’ve had a server or a group of servers at a restaurant sing happy birthday to you. After all, that’s common practice for a lot of eating establishments. Although it’s kind of cheesy, it’s still fun.

Viral video

Celebrating with family and friends

It all started when Jared Gravatt’s family visited him in Marion, Illinois where he lives. To celebrate his birthday, they decided to take him to breakfast. And what better place than Cracker Barrel.

Being a dad

Jared’s father was especially proud of his boy. So, when he told their server it was his son’s birthday, no one was surprised. In response, the individual who had waited on them said they would see if any of the other servers would sing him happy birthday.

No expectations

After Jared’s dad made the request, no one in the group thought much else about it. But what they didn’t know is that their server had in fact, found someone to sing. And this wasn’t just any ordinary waitress.

Her name is… Miranda

Miranda sauntered up to the table where Jared and his family sat. Pulling down her mask and without saying a word, she began to sing. That’s when they all realized this wasn’t a normal birthday but one that would provide a lasting memory.

Everyone watched and listened

Along with Jared and his family, the second Miranda started to sing, everyone in the entire restaurant gave her their full attention. Why? She had the voice of an angel.

A beautiful rendition

Sure, a lot of people put a spin on the happy birthday song but Miranda’s version tops them all. Not only was her voice amazing but she sang from the heart. The only question, why isn’t she on American Idol instead of working as a waitress for Cracker Barrel?

48-Seconds of Heaven

That’s how long the video lasted. Jared was so impressed by Miranda’s talent that he knew what he had to do. After leaving the restaurant, he immediately uploaded it to his TikTok account. It didn’t take any time at all for people from all around the world to common on her stunning voice.

Hoping it works

Jared is right, Miranda should become famous. After all, she has the kind of talent that doesn’t come along very often. Commenters agreed, with one saying, “That went from Arianna Grande to Christina Aguilera to Whitney Houston in forty-five seconds.”
