We’ve all either experienced stage fright or at least have known someone that was frozen on a stage. It’s the worst and if don’t have the right people around you, it could end up in a huge embarrassing mess. That was going to be a story Suri Daniels was going to tell later in life, if her dad hadn’t stepped in and saved the day.
By day, Marc Daniels is a lawyer working in Bermuda. But by night and any other time, he is a super hero aka an amazing dad. He and his family were at Hamilton City Hall to watch Suri perform a beautiful ballet.
Little did he know before hand that he would also be on stage, doing pirouettes along side his daughter.
“Bella was very emotional and needed hugs from her daddy.
Despite having a tantrum, I can tell she wanted to stay on stage and I didn’t want to discourage her before the big performance by making her be the only one to come off.
I walked on holding Suri and stood next to her, trying to help build her confidence – I told her I loved her and that she’s an amazing dancer.
I asked if she wanted to dance with daddy and she nodded, so I thought I’d join in.
I’ve practiced with them at home on many occasions so it wasn’t unfamiliar to me.”
After the performance, news of his ballerina ways went a tad viral. His colleagues at work messed with him a bit said Daniels:
“Jurors, police officers and members of the prosecution have even been giving me twirls and plies as a token of appreciation for the video,’ he said.
Even in court the other day, one of the magistrates made a comment about my moves that prompted the court to erupt into laughter.”
A similar situation happened this past April when a mother saw that her daughter had forgotten the words to a song during her talent show. Rhonda Whitney filmed the video as Shaye Washington stepped up to fill in the words when her daughter, Makayla, forgot them.
Whitney posted the video on Facebook with the caption:
“At my daughter’s talent show last night, this young lady got scared and stopped singing. What her mom (Shaye Washington) did, had me in tears and i cry every time i watch it. <3 To the mom and daughter in this video: thank you for showing us all something so beautiful, and inspirational. In my eyes you won the talent show <3 #riseup" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpCQZlTLviU Washington then told CBS News later on that the song means a lot to her, saying, "It means a lot. It means perseverance. Before I moved to Colorado ... that was one of the songs that helped me push on." Makayla concluded with saying, "Sometimes I feel like ... I don't say ... don't act like I'm thankful, but I want to be more thankful and thank her."
Now if that was too much amazing parenting for you to handle, take a look at the other end of the spectrum. This girl was admitted to rehab after her parents found out she was playing 10 hours of Fortnite a night. Oh and she’s nine years old…
