Another thing that most people love about this place is the street performers who show off their amazing talents.

Before the pandemic, you won’t have a hard time finding musicians, dancers, comedians, and entertainers as you visit this lovely place.

A YouTuber even shared his own experience when he went there.

Gladly, he shared a video on his channel. According to him, it was in 2018 when they had to go to California Science Center for the King Tut Exhibit.

Right after that, they decided to spend their time at Santa Monica Pier where they found some amazing performers.

“As we approached, there was a crowd gathered around some street performers so we decided to see what they were doing,” he wrote.

What’s more amazing is when his son Jace got involved in the show. How cool is that?

The boy was 9 years old at that time and he seemed to be quiet but you would see him frequently smiling. Little did the performers as well as the audience know, this little kid was about to show something spectacular!

“Well, this time he was chosen! Not only was he chosen but, he stole the show, blew everyone’s minds, and earned some cash doing it!”

Yup, the performers compensated him for the amazing thing he did and he really deserved it.

What Jace did was unexpected.

He was being commanded by the emcee and it’s nice to watch him obeying everything the emcee was saying. He was also asked to mimic every move that the other performer would do.

When they were asked to “run it out”, the dancer ran fast, the little boy even did it better. They also jumped high right after.

It was a cool performance, indeed.

But there was still a surprising part. The dancer did a breathtaking backflip, so he also asked the kid to do it.

Did he do it?

Unfortunately, he didn’t. But he did something better than and it really stunned everyone.

He did splits without hesitations! The performers were amazed and the audience couldn’t believe it. The venue was filled with screams and claps when the kid did it.

Because of that, the performers commended him. The host even commanded the audience to tell Jace that he was amazing, which they did.

They also gave him $20 to compensate him.

The whole show was a blast!

Apart from Jace’s unexpected performance, the performers were also there to spread positivity and kindness.

No wonder why Jace’s parent was so thankful to them.

“They were extremely cool, very positive, had a great message, and made my kid feel like the champion he is! I did personally thank them and yes, I did donate.”

Although this video was recorded a few years ago, I hope that many people would still able to watch it.

I hope that the 78,598 views that the video has gained would still increase even though it’s already a huge number. It’s just that it’s filled with a heartwarming message that we all need to hear today.

I hope you would watch the video below!
