He was so transfixed in the lyrics to the song that at one point he stops dancing altogether and simply keeps on staring at the projector screen. Definitely, his daughter’s brilliant idea made him feel more involved and included in the special moment.

As the song reached its conclusion, Julie’s father was visibly in tears, completely overwhelmed by emotions. Struggling to compose himself, he took his daughter in a warm embrace as if expressing her his gratitude.


"He looked absolutely shocked. He was grinning so much, and he just looked like he was in awe. At the end of the song, he couldn't keep it in anymore and he was crying," Julie told the Inside Edition.

Meanwhile, the report from Inside Edition also suggested that Julie’s parents were born deaf due to Rubella Measles outbreak in the 1960’s.

Because of this, she learned sign language even before she learned how to talk. Surprisingly, she stated that she even dreamt in sign many times.
