Adorable Young Man And Puppet Sing 'I'll Be There' For Target Shopper

An adorable young man and a puppet put on quite the performance for a woman shopping in Target as they sang the classic “I’ll Be There” for her.

Michael Jackson remains one of the most prominent and influential figures in entertainment despite passing away more than a decade ago. His songs are still played and covered by many artists. Others even try to imitate his dance moves, some with greater success than others.

However, despite his solo success, Michael began his career in the entertainment field as a child. He and his brothers displayed their talent while singing several hit and classic songs as members of The Jackson 5. One of the group’s memorable songs includes “I’ll Be There.”

In a clip posted on social media, a young man approaches a woman shopping in Target and asks if he can sing her a tune. She agrees, and the precious young man starts singing The Jackson 5 hit. 

“I’ll reach out my hand to you

I’ll have faith in all you do

Just call my name, and I’ll be there (I’ll be there)”

This is not a solo performance, but it is a duet. The little guy sings a few words, and then a puppet on his right arm raises and joins in on the performance. The two performers go back and forth, dividing the lyrics evenly between them.

The woman whom the young guy is serenading loves the performance. She is all smiles while he’s singing and gives him a well-deserved round of applause when he finishes his cover of The Jackson 5 classic.

But the young the child sang to was not the only person who appreciated the performance. The camera also catches two people in an aisle across from the young man who clapped and showed their appreciation.

Ephesians 5:19 “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;”
