12-Year-Old Cries Playing Organ After Dad Recovers From COVID-19

There are millions of words to describe our feelings but sometimes words just aren't enough. Especially when you’re going through hard times and you weren’t sure what the outcome would be. One 12-year-old boy cried while playing the organ for his dad after he recovered from Covid-19.

In March of this year, Johnnie Clark of California surprised his son with a piano, promising his son, Shyon, they would have plenty of time to play together. And that’s what they did for four hours every day. Shayon played on the organ and his dad, sitting next to him as he played the piano. But like many other families throughout the pandemic, his father tested positive for COVID-19.

"It made me extremely sad because I couldn't see him and we weren't able to be together. But I continued to play the organ by myself because I didn't want to forget the songs he taught me," Shyon said. But by the grace of God, Johnnie kept his promise to return home after beating the virus.

The next day, Shyon sat down at the organ to show his dad just how he felt. As he played ‘Deliver Me,’ Shyon broke down in tears. He stopped playing and used his t-shirt to wipe his cheeks. He was so overcome with relief that his dad and best friend made it home.

"I started to tear up because at one point I thought I was never going to see my dad again, but he was 'delivered.' So I just let it all out and I couldn't hold my tears back," he said.

While he was playing for his father, his parents did what all proud parents do, they whipped out their phones to record their son playing. Despite his tearful moment, his parents posted the video, moved by their son’s heartfelt performance. But what they didn’t expect was for the simple, sweet video to go viral! So far, it’s had more than 700,000 views before being posted to Color Coded Media and Good Morning America.

Nothing is more precious than the love of a father, and Shyon captured this beautifully with his emotions and performance. What an incredible display of love!
