It was a different kind of family get together.

Scarymommy.com reported that the LeBaron family’s karaoke session went viral for the beautiful rendition of a song from Les Miserables.

Some families prefer to play a few card games, watch a movie, grab a few drinks, etc. But the LeBaron family consists of some really talented members.

When they got together, they decided to belt out a beautiful rendition of a song from Les Miserables.

One fact was proved – all of them can sing. The parents, Dennise and Gerald LeBaron, along with their five children and their spouses.

They decided to sing on Easter while Dennis recorded the performance to keep for herself. But then, the video went viral once it was shared on Facebook by her son, Jordon.

‘Anyone looking to do Les Miserables for their next show? Better yet… anyone looking for an entire cast?’

He also listed the cast. He played Marius while his wife is Cosette. The rest of the group fill in the other roles along with Dennis and Gerald.

One of the most adorable things is when Eponine is singing beautifully and her baby tugs incessantly on her hair. There is also another little one being held by her father while the rest of the crew sings.

The family said that the night started as a typical Sunday for them – performing renditions of their beloved show tunes.

However, it is not just a one-off thing for the family. The LeBarons began singing long ago. One day when Gerald was playing the piano, the family noticed that their two-year-old Holli singing unusually well for a small child.

Soon Holli and Jordon began performing at church and community events and meetings.

Soon, Heidi and Jayson joined the group and continued the legacy of performing. Just then Juston and Landon came along and they too joined and the singing became a daily affair. 

They have had their ups and downs too. Holli passed away suddenly in 2002 and Landon was diagnosed with Autism in 2003. The challenges helped the family to come together as they ‘grew stronger through their experiences.’

Dennise said that singing was the glue that has held their family together during tough times.

Jordon said that the family has been overwhelmed by the attention they are receiving after the posting the video on the internet. Families around the world are writing to them and telling them that the LeBarons have inspired them to do the same.

Though they are not used to the attention, Jordon said that they are enjoying the love that is being shared.
