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.
My son singing "Remember Me" from the movie "Coco" to his baby sister, Ava, who we lost this past May.
He's only 4 years old and he understands. He didn't even know he was being recorded. He just wanted to sing to her for her 1st birthday!
Happy Birthday mamas, we miss you!💕 pic.twitter.com/EoVLjju0bJ
