There is nothing more precious for parents than bonding and creating beautiful memories with their children. I know this because I’m a parent myself and every second I spend with my child means a million years to me.

To us, parents, one of the best things to do with our children is share our time with them while they do their hobbies or interests such as singing. And that’s what Dave Crosby is doing with her beautiful daughter, Claire.

The father-daughter duo doesn’t just go to amusement parks, eat and play together, but they also sing. In fact, one of their videos went extremely viral when they duet to ‘Shallow’, a song performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper from the blockbuster movie, ‘A Star Is Born.’

A beautiful cover.

Song covers always give us that retouch of an already good song and these song covers weren’t just from artists but also beginners. They do covers to give songs their never-heard-before renditions that aim to captivate listeners’ ears.

In Dave and little Claire’s case, they want nothing but to bond and entertain people at the same time. To no surprise, the video of their ‘A Star Is Born’ racked up a whopping 28.8 million views since it was uploaded in May of 2020.

Turns out, the song is Claire’s mom’s favorite song and with Dave’s acoustic guitar intro right there, you’d immediately know the father-daughter duo was up for something spectacular.

Dave then goes off singing the first few lines of the multi-awarded song.

“Tell me something, girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there something else you’re searchin’ for?
I’m falling
In all the good times, I find myself longin’ for change
And in the bad times, I fear myself”

Claire then follows through pouring emotions into the song.

With her angelic and young voice, the then 7-year-old girl sings from the heart.

“Tell me something, boy
Aren’t you tired trying to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?
I’m falling
In all the good times, I find myself longing for change
And in the bad times, I fear myself”

Then suddenly, she soars high belting the chorus part and she’s hitting every note correctly.

Turns out, Claire is a young actress and a singer, this song cover is just one of her viral videos.

Her first viral video was when she performed a Disney song from ‘The Little Mermaid’ when she was just 3 years old. Claire’s first television appearance was at ‘Little Big Shots’ in 2017 when she was 4. Then she made her Acting Debut in 2018 when she played the role of Rose in the feature film ‘The Little Mermaid.’

In their YouTube channel called ‘The Crosbys’, Claire has a video collection of other song covers and even live performances with her dad. She is now 10 and the oldest child of Dave, who’s also a singer himself. Claire has younger siblings named Carson and June.

We can’t wait to see what’s next for this already-talented young girl.
