Four-year old Boy’s Touching Tribute to Sister from Disney Pixar’s Coco

Boy Sings Coco Song for Sister

In Disney Pixar’s “Coco” aspiring musician, Miguel, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.

The song, “Remember Me,” from the movie is sure to tug on your heartstrings, but hearing this sweet little 4-year old boy sing it to his little sister, who passed away in May, may have you reaching for a box of tissues.

The Deais family, parents Samir and Stephanie and son Alex, lost their daughter and sister, Ava Lyn, after a hydronephrosis diagnosis – which is a kidney condition – in May of 2017. According to Samir watching the film, “Coco”, has helped Alex deal with his sister’s death.

In this touching video Alex is singing to his sister for her first birthday.  The lyrics he’s singing are:

Remember me / Though I have to travel far / Remember me / Don’t let it make you cry / For even if I’m far away I hold you in my heart / I sing a secret song to you each night we are apart / Though I have to travel far / Remember me

The video has gone viral and, at this point, has had over 1.85M views. The family has said they are floored and brought to tears by the outpouring of support the video has received.
