The boy — who was sitting in the car with his dad Darren Miller while going on a family car ride — can be seen gesticulating while singing the 1993 hit from the movie "The Bodyguard," hitting both the high and low notes quite impeccably.

His mother, Danna Miller said according to reports: “We did just watch a documentary on [Houston] about a month ago, and so he started downloading her songs and that was the one he got stuck on.” She told ABC News that it was her elder son, 13-year-old Dawson who introduced Dane to the song.

Danna said she was overwhelmed by the response she had gotten because of the video: “Just reading the comments, they’re so sweet. I’m getting emotional.”

“Some other families who have Down syndrome children have posted pictures with their kids,” she added.

The comments below the post were indeed very appreciative of Dane, with many calling him a ‘star’.

"He is just very vibrant," his aunt Jeanne told ABC News. "He's very high-functioning so if he hears music, it's just something that sticks with him. He's very proud [of the video]. He just smiles and giggles," she added.

Dane now has a YouTube channel of his own called ‘Amazing Dane’, where the video was posted three days ago and has over 23,570 views.

According to Danna, Dane enjoys all kinds of music, especially Taylor Swift, ‘Kidz Bop Kids’ and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's ‘Carol of the Bells’.

When asked by a 22 News WWLP reporter what he thought about millions of people watching him sing, Dane replied saying: “Happy.” He said he would “put up more videos,” when asked about what he planned on doing about his new-found-fame.

His mother hopes to share a video of Dane performing another one of his favorites, "Cray Button" by Family Force 5 soon onto his YouTube Channel.

"When we had Dane, we didn't know that he had Down syndrome, but it wouldn't have mattered," she told ABC News. "He has been probably the biggest blessing of our lives. He is just so loving and joyful. He is what's good about this world."
