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.
