Warning — you might need to grab some tissues before watching this! Parents can be our biggest supporters no matter what age. The mom in this video really exemplifies the love and encouragement moms can give us. Rhonda Whitney captured the touching moment when a young girl suddenly stopped midway through her performance at a talent show.

Mom, sensing something was wrong, starts singing from her seat and eventually joins her on stage. Both mom and daughter have beautiful voices, and the cheers from the audience make this video even sweeter! And our RTM hosts got the chance to speak to this mom, Shaye, and daughter, Makayla, via Skype in the studio.

Dad Entertains Son Battling Leukemia

It's always difficult to understand why people, especially children, have to deal with cancer. Kennith "Clutch" Thomas' 15-month-old son Kristian was recently in the hospital for 32 days after being diagnosed with leukemia. Kristian was born with Down syndrome and a blood disorder, and doctors had previously told the family he could develop leukemia at any point, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. After finding out that Kristian could finally go home from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, dance instructor Kennith wanted to celebrate. Taking inspiration from his son's battle and singer Ciara, Kennith set out to cheer up and entertain Kristian to the tune of Ciara's new song "Level Up."  Kennith and wife Josilyne also coincidentally have a dance studio named "The Level Brand."   When you wake up to your sons number LEVELS UP!! And we get to go home for a few days as he is killing CANCER!! TAG @ciara this song right on time #GODSPLAN #fightkristian #fightcancer #FIGHTLEUKEMIA #locking #dance #love #son #fatherandson #levelupchallenge A post shared by Kenny Clutch (@kennyclutch_) on   Jul 21, 2018 at 9:28am PDT The story even got the attention of Ciara herself! The song is a dance and personal challenge, asking those taking part to think of three ways to better themselves in life. Kristian has already proved himself to be a warrior though, and we are completely inspired by the strength of the entire family!   My can’t take it watching this proud Father @KennyClutch_ dancing doing the #LevelUpChallenge because his baby’s numbers were up. God is so good! We’re dancing for you too angel! Let’s #LevelUp against Cancer together! A post shared by Ciara (@ciara) on Jul 22, 2018 at 11:19am PDT View Now
