Dad Sings ‘Hallelujah’ and Tiny Miracle Baby Raises Hand

Dad Sings ‘Hallelujah’ and Tiny Miracle Baby Raises Hand

Each child is a precious gift from God. For any mom or dad, one of the scariest, most heart-wrenching experiences would have to be having a child sick in the hospital. Those parents would be consumed with worry and fear. One video shows that even during those frightening experiences God is still there working. 

A popular TikTok video shows a father, Daniel Johnson, sitting in the neonatal intensive care unit, holding his child. Several tubes can be seen attached to the child. Various machines periodically beep in the room.

However, as Daniel looks down lovingly at Remington Johnson, he lightly sings “Hallelujah Here Below.” But then something amazing happens!

When Daniel reaches the song’s chorus and sings “hallelujah,” Remington raises his little arm! As can be expected when seeing such a sight, Daniel begins tearing up.

At the time of his birth, sweet little Remington did have much chance of surviving, the caption to the TikTok video reads. He was born four months early. Doctors only gave the child a 21 percent chance at living. 

Emily Johnson, Remington’s mother and the person who filmed the amazing moment, had complete faith in God after her medical team filled her in on the situation with Remington.

“Getting there and them saying, ‘Ok, well, this is what’s happening, we’re gonna try and stop your contractions and try to at least delay this a few days,” Emily told Good Morning America

Emily went on to detail how dire the situation with Remington really was.  

“Going from that to ‘We’re taking him right now; you’ve got about 10 minutes. It’s going to be emergency c-section,” she said. “Then ask us, ‘Do you want us to do everything we can to save him, or do you just want to let him live as long as he can on his own and then pass?’

Emily and Daniel knew immediately what they were going to do.

“And you know, for us, that wasn’t even a question,” Emily added. “It was automatically, ‘No, we’re going to do everything. God gave us this child. God will see us through this.” 

God can still and does perform miracles. He is seeing Daniel, Emily and Remington through the situation. The caption to the video mentions that Remington is now 2 and a half months old.

In the interview with GMA, Emily detailed all of the care and medicine Remington required. Emily also added that Remington is now off all meds! 

“He’s a miracle baby, in every sense of the word. A miracle baby,” Daniel told Good Morning America
