Texas father goes viral for singing ‘worship song’ to premature son in NICU: ‘Proof that God is faithful’

A video of a father singing to his premature son who was given a low survival rate has gone viral.

Daniel Johnson, a resident of Texas, shared footage onto TikTok that his wife recorded of him singing a “worship song” to their son at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple in Bell County.

“Remington Hayze Johnson,” Johnson captioned his video on Dec. 20, 2022. “Proof that God is faithful.”

“Born 4 months early and given a 21% chance of survival,” Johnson continued. “Today we are 2 1/2 months old giving God all the praise He deserves.”

While holding Remington, Johnson sang “Hallelujah Here Below” by Elevation Worship, a contemporary Christian music ensemble from North Carolina.

Remington responded to Johnson’s singing by raising his right hand about 35 seconds into the song, which brought tears to his father’s eyes (SEE the video at the top of this article).

Fox News Digital reached out to Johnson and the Baylor Scott & White Medical Center for comment.
