You’ve Never Seen a Boy Belt Out a Whitney Houston Song Like This

'Is this child not the sweetest thing ever?' wrote his aunt alongside the video. 'He loves to sing ... He's joyful!'

A nine-year-old boy from Texas has captured the hearts of thousands after racking up 18 million views on Facebook with his rendition of Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing.”

Dane Miller, who has Down syndrome, was first introduced to the late superstar by his older brother, Dawson, ABC News reported.

“We did just watch a documentary on [Houston] about a month ago, and so he started downloading her songs and that was the one he got stuck on,” Danna Miller, the boys’ mother, told Fox 31 in Denver.

The boy’s aunt posted a clip of her nephew belting out Houston’s lyrics to Facebook on July 24.

“Is this boy not the sweetest thing ever?” Jeanne Miller wrote alongside the video. “He loves to sing. Whitney would be proud #getthatboyamic #mynewphewDanerocks.”

“When we had Dane, we didn’t know that he had Down syndrome, but it wouldn’t have mattered,” Danna Miller told ABC News. “He has been probably the biggest blessing of our lives. He is just so loving and joyful. He is what’s good about this world.”
