Sister Sings 'You Are My Sunshine' To 2-Year-Old Brother Bo With Down Syndrome On Guitar

Mom Amanda Bowman Gray asked her daughter to watch her 2-year-old son, Bo, while she took a shower, and when she returned to check on them she was taken by surprise. 

Her daughter sat on the floor with her guitar propped on her lap with little Bo right next to her. The adorable duo started singing "You Are My Sunshine" and Amanda knew she had to capture this special moment on video. Bo has Down Syndrome and only knows how to say 12 words, and singing with his sister has helped him improve his vocabulary.

According to Little Things, Bo's mother Amanda said he can only speak about 12 words and  “every word he has learned has been through music and singing.”

Her daughter, Lydia, is a natural on the guitar and pauses during the song so Bo can sing his line. You can tell this is not the first time they've sung a duet together because they're so comfortable with each other and in sync.

The lyrics to the song are sweet as well. 

"You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey.

You’ll never know dear, how much I love you, please don’t take my sunshine away.

The other night dear, as I laid sleeping, I dreamed I held you by my side.

When I awoke dear, I was mistaken, and I hung my head and cried."


You told me once dear, you really loved me, and no one else could come between.

But now you’ve left me, and you love another, and you have shattered all my dreams.


I’ll always love you and make you happy if you will only say the same.

But if you leave me to love another, you’ll regret it all someday."

This is such an adorable brother-sister moment that we bet you're eager to see! The video is below for you to enjoy/ WARNING: You may need tissues by the end of it!
