'Baby Shark' girl who melted hearts with her Alexa request steals the show again on 'TODAY'
A two-year-old girl that has been stealing hearts all over social media with her love for the “Baby Shark” song has now done the same with the audience of “TODAY.”
Little Zoé Turner is always ready to party and make any place her dancefloor with one condition: that the Pinkfong’s hit song for children, “Baby Shark,” is playing the background.
BECOMING A VIRAL SENSATION
The adorable girl first earned nationwide attention thanks to a video that her mom shared on Facebook. In the clip, Zoé is seen commanding Amazon’s Alexa to play her favorite song, but struggling to make the device understand her words.
While Alexa tries to offer some solutions and starts playing other songs, Zoé didn’t give up that easily and kept trying to make herself clear. However, after many failed attempts, the girl finally turns to her mom for help, who immediately gets Alexa to play the right song.
As soon as the introductory notes of the song start filling the kitchen, Zoé laughs delighted and start swinging back and forth to the rhythm of the song. She also threw in some of the moves from the original choreography seen in the music video.
The video earned over 14 million views, making little Zoé a viral sensation.
STEALING HEARTS ON TV
She was invited to the “TODAY” show and got to charm the live audience and the hosts with her eagerness to have Alexa play “Baby Shark” in the studio. This time around, she didn’t have to try that long, and Alexa started blasting the earworm hit immediately.
Zoé led everyone on set in a rendition of the “Baby Shark” dance, but when Alexa stopped playing the song to make an update to its system, the toddler was visibly annoyed as she tried to make the device play the song once again.
Her parents, Cryssy and Keith, revealed that is normal in their house to listen to the song all day long.
They confessed that the song is stuck on their heads permanently: “I'm singing it at work, I'm singing it in the car ... (Cryssy's) like, 'What are you singing?'" Keith admitted.
ANOTHER BABY SHARK FAN GOES VIRAL
On a similar note, the “Baby Shark” phenomenon has led another adorable fan of the song to melt hearts all over social media.
One-year-old Exton Black, a toddler from Alabama who was diagnosed with Down Syndrome at four-days-old, is the newest Internet star thanks to an adorable video that his mother shared of him dancing in his Halloween costume.
Exton loves “Baby Shark” so much that his parents decided to get him a shark costume, and it was only right to record the baby jamming to his favorite song in the cute outfit. Exton can be seen sitting beside and pumpkin dancing to the hit tune and smiling softly to his mom.
The video has earned over 75k views and keeps spreading every day.
Savannah Shayne Black, the boy’s mom, told CBS that Exton "has a crazy medical history,” and called the boy a “miracle” and a “fighter.” The toddler has been suffering from a heart condition since he was a baby, and on top of that, he has a collapsed airway that requires him to use a ventilator to breathe, which can be seen on the video.
“[We] have been living life to the fullest with our miracle child who just so happens to have Down syndrome and be on life support!" Savannah said. "He makes this lifestyle easy for us as his family! He is so full of joy, and we are so blessed for every second we have with him!"
