This toddler is going viral for her adorable rendition of the classic Dolly Parton song. She hasn’t figured out all the lyrics to “Jolene,” but that hasn’t stopped her from belting it out.
According to Daily Mail, the little girl is Sophia from Michigan, and she’s obviously a Parton fan. Sophia’s mom, Brooke Heiler Kingsley, spotted her daughter singing the song one day in her playroom and couldn’t resist taking a video. The two-year-old is very busy playing with her toys while she sings the song.
“Darlene, Darlene, Darlene,” she hilariously sings (hey, at least it rhymes with “Jolene”). “Please don’t take my man.”
Kingsley posted the video in mid-December, and she’s had 6 million views and counting.
Her parents spoke with Fox 17 about all Sophia’s love for music. “Music’s always been a part of her growing up,” the parents told the news station. “She’s always been very vocal.”
“I actually just finished cleaning the house and I could hear her in her playroom singing,” Kingsley explains. “I was like, ‘OK. I think she might be singing a little song.’ I just kind of turned on my phone and walked in there and she was singing ‘Jolene’ by herself.”
Sophia isn’t fazed by her popularity. In fact, “she doesn’t know and doesn’t care.” She may not care, but we do.
Dolly, if you’re watching, we need a duet of “Jolene.”
