SHREVEPORT, LA – Two-year-old Violet Ogea’s rendition of the alphabet song is going viral. Video of her dramatic performance has been viewed more than 3 million times on Facebook since her mother Christina posted it on Thursday.
Violet lives in Shreveport, Louisiana, with her family, but she could be on Broadway soon. Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who just finished a Broadway run, shared the video on his Facebook page, writing “I can’t help but think this what Elaine Stritch was like as a child. Obsessed. #BigFinish.”
Violet’s mother explains, “She goes to Southfield School for preschool and everyday when I pick her up she runs to the theater and makes me and her brothers sit in the audience so she can sing for us. She really digs the acoustics in there. But she learns the songs at night when I rock her to sleep. She would start singing them back to me so I decided to start singing the alphabet to her so she could learn them. We are always playing music in our house, dancing with the kids and she just loves to sing for us all. And this is just the way she likes to sing.”
Sing on, Violet!!
