The video that was captured quickly went viral.
Delaney Wilson, 18, becomes famous as her singing voice appeals to TikTok users.
Without Delaney’s knowledge, her supervisor secretly taped the talented teen singing “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid.” Her video has received more than 12 million views, and TikTok is now well-known for her singing prowess.
Delaney’s employer’s mother discussed her decision to videotape the babysitter singing and her reasoning for doing so.
“I was thinking, I want her to be able to hear herself when she knows no one is looking. The first time I heard her sing, I was so moved that I started crying. Delaney, you have such a crazy gift, I said. Nicholas Maher
Maher may be seen in the video discreetly filming Delaney as she plays with Maher’s daughter.
When Maher enters her home, he says to the camera, “This is our babysitter.” Delaney can be heard singing the Disney classic in the background.
“I am trying to encourage her to put her voice out there more,” Maher wrote over the video. But she becomes depressed over how she seems in her videos. And beauty is all I see. My kids also do.
“That’s when she said to me, ‘I just overthink it and I never feel like I sound good enough and I just don’t always feel confident in the way I look,’” Maher said. “And it just broke my heart.”
Ultimately Delaney gave Maher permission to post the video on her TikTok account and it immediately went viral.
“It’s not that she didn’t know she had a talent that so many people have already told her she had,” Maher said. “It’s that she didn’t hear it without knowing she was trying or that someone was watching. So that’s why the video was so beautiful.” – Maher
Delaney was blown away by the attention and support after her video went viral. Her talent has been recognized the world over and now she has the confidence to share her gift.
“It’s been absolutely crazy,” Wilson added. “I’ve gotten so many amazing, like, opportunities and just, I’ve met so many amazing people that have reached out and been so kind to me. So it’s really helped my confidence and it makes me super happy to know that people do want to hear my voice.” – Delaney told Fox News.
Delaney’s boss has uploaded another video to TikTok of her singing a song from Disney’s ‘Mulan.’
After a fan requested, “Reflection” from ‘Mulan,’ Delaney didn’t disappoint. Nicki states in her intro – “This is the response you guys have been waiting for.”
