Oreo the cat was living outside of St. Augustine Health Ministries in Cleveland, OH for years before she entered the facility and changed lives of both the staff and the residents. From the moment she moved in, Oreo has become the most recognizable and the most lovable character in the entire nursing home. She trades purrs for pets and is always there if anyone needs a company. Even though keeping a cat is not the usual practice in the health facilities, her warmth and friendliness make people smile and there’s no better medicine than that. I wish more nursing homes [More]
At 6 months pregnant this mom’s growing belly probably didn’t do much for her self-esteem. Fortunately her 15 month old daughter was there to make her feel better about it (or worse, you make the call, LOL) by making an impression of mommy’s funny walk. Honestly, with all that extra weight in the front, the “pregnant walk” does look kinda funny, but when you have this toddler making her interpretation of it, it’s downright hysterical. I’m sure that as big of a stress as pregnancy is on a woman’s body, moments like this make it all worth it. goviralhasPoppedUp = [More]

Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love with You” is one of those songs that transcends generations or music tastes. It’s one of those songs everybody loves and everyone’s heard millions of times. Reinventing it is virtually impossible because no one can come close to Elvis’ voice, right? Well, before you make that call, listen to this amazing cover. I’m not saying that this should even be compared to the King of Rock-n-Roll, but what this couple did is beautiful. They re-imagined the song as a soothing, mellow tune, almost a lullaby and I can’t get enough of it. goviralhasPoppedUp [More]

Oh my goodness, I got chills all over from the moment this amazing girl started singing to the last second of this video. “Chandelier” is an incredible song but even the original failed to make me feel this way. This is Elha Nympha, a Filipino singing sensation that’s been stealing the shows everywhere from her native country to the USA. She won The Voice Kids (Philippines) and is one of the top 8 contestants of Your Face Sounds Familiar so it’s no wonder Steve Harvey brought her to Little Big Shots. If she sounds this good now, just imagine how [More]

It’s been half a century since Simon and Garfunkel wrote their timeless hit “Sound of Silence”. That’s 50 years worth of covers, live performances, samples and memes, but once you hear this you’ll know that there’s nothing quite like the original. Yes, the decades sure show on their faces, and some even argue that this heavy metal version is the best one ever performed, but it takes only one verse to realize that this song, the original version of it, just doesn’t age. Even 50 years from now you can bet it will still sound fresh and new. goviralhasPoppedUp = [More]
Those of you who’ve been to the Arlington National Cemetery know what a patriotic experience it is honoring thousands of unidentified servicemen and servicewomen who lost their lives for their country. Most of you do know, but then there’s this kind of people. During the changing of the guard ceremony, loud laughter could be heard in the crowd. Now, I always thought the guards were there just to do their trained routine and pay no attention to tourists, but watch what this soldier did when he heard people disrespecting the Tomb. There was no more laughing after this. goviralhasPoppedUp = [More]
