Move over Von Trapp Family Singers…
This video of the ridiculously talented LeBaron family singing One More Day from Les Misérables is kind of mind blowing in how casually they NAIL IT!
The LeBarons, five of the kids and their spouses, along with Mom, Dennise husband Gerald decided to do a little Les Miz. Mom wanted to record the performance and son Jordon shared it on Facebook with the caption,
“Anyone looking to do Les Miserables for their next show? Better yet…anyone looking for an entire cast?”
So far it’s been viewed on YouTube over 1.5 million times and on Facebook almost 12 million times!
The family story is pretty incredible. After the hoopla over the video the family issued a press release reads,
“The LeBarons began singing before the time of Instagram and YouTube sensations, when Dennise and Gerald had only two children. One day while Gerald was playing the piano, they noticed that their two-year-old Holli sang unusually well for a small child and enjoyed performing. Soon, Holli and Jordon began performing at church and community events and meetings.”
Not long after, Heidi and Jayson joined the group. The LeBaron Quartet continued the legacy of performing when Juston and Landon came along. Singing was almost a daily affair.”
Sadly, Holli passed away suddenly in 2002 and in 2003, brother Landon was diagnosed with Autism. The family says their challenges helped them unite as they
“grew stronger through their experiences.”
Mom Dennise says,
“Singing is the glue that has held our family together during the tough times.”
Jordon says that the family has been “overwhelmed” by the internet’s reaction to their video.
“We are getting inundated with comments from around the world from people who are inspired to do the same thing with their families.
All of the attention is not something we are used to, but we are enjoying the love that is being shared as a result of our post.”
