She loves dancing with the music, and she was dancing on the spot as if nobody was watching.

When the singer, Kenny Sways, took notice of the dancing child, he decided to prepare a special song for her.

Kenny Sways chose to serenade the little girl with Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”
