Ella Mae is also a fan of JD McPherson, The Beach Boys, Bruno Mars, Bobby Day and Richard Marx.

While he wanted to share a video of Ella Mae singing other songs, he said it was difficult to do so.

“She is only 21 months old and easily distracted so it can be quite challenging to get another video like this one. If we can come up with another good one I will definitely post it,” he wrote.

Three months after posting the video, Billy shared an update, writing that the family watch a concert by Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the King of Rock N’ Roll.

"We had the great pleasure of meeting Lisa Marie Presley at her concert last week. She was so nice and hung out with Ella before the show," he wrote.

ANOTHER ADORABLE ASPIRING SINGER

Just as adorable as Ella Mae is Leah Carroll, who was filmed singing and smiling from a hospital bed even after undergoing two bone marrow transplants.

In a viral video, Leah can be seen singing and dancing along to her favorite song, Mandisa's "Overcomer."

The caption of the clip says, “She’s an overcomer. Septic shock, two bone marrow transplants, graft vs. host disease and 325 days away from home in the hospital. God is so good to us through it all and Leah is proof of his mercy and grace! I do not own the rights to this song.”
