The song “Can’t Help Falling in Love” was featured in Elvis Presley’s 1961 film, ‘Blue Hawaii.’ It became such a hit that a lot of other artists decided to record it like the Swedish pop group A-Teens, and the British reggae group UB40, whose 1993 version topped the US and UK charts.

This Presley hit song was even listed as one of the greatest songs by Rolling Stone, grabbing the #403 spot in the list’s 2012 edition.

Would you expect this song to be performed by someone who was born in Gen Z?

Say no more because an adorable little girl named Claire Crosby did it 3 years ago when she made a song cover of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” at 6 years old. In fact, she didn’t simply sing it but also performed the beautiful song while playing the ukulele.

Who is Claire Crosby?

Turns out, this talented young girl is somebody who’s already appeared in television shows like Little Big Shots in 2017 at the age of 4 and reality tv shows like The Voice (2011) with her father, Dave Crosby who’s also a singer.

The then 6-year-old girl started her performance by singing the first few lines of the song, not only was she good, but she also knew when to time it with her ukelele. Her voice was raw yet very pleasing to the ears and she was also on point with her tone.

Claire also knew how to project to the camera which totally makes sense because of her experience as an actress. On top of her undeniable singing skills, her innocence, and charm are irresistible to the point that you wouldn’t want to take your full attention off of her.

She was definitely with the song, with her eyes closed, you’d definitely feel the passion and dedication of this young girl to her craft.

Even the high notes didn’t bother her.

Claire didn’t shy away from belting the high notes of the Elvis Presley classic. Her falsetto was flawlessly beautiful, isn’t she amazing? Her song is the perfect definition of short but sweet.

In fact, Claire and her dad are the special guests in “Christmas Together”, a show by the musical duo Mat and Savanna Shaw which will be on December 22 and 23 at the Eccles Theater in Salt Lake City, Utah.
