At four-years-old, Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera's daughter Zia is already showing a lot of talent in music.
On Instagram yesterday, October 1, the proud father shared a clip of his daughter playing her version of Ben King's "Stand By Me."
In the caption, Dingdong shared the back story of how Zia learned to play one of his favorite songs of all time.
"Every night before we sleep, this little princess comes to my workspace as I send last-minute emails and messages, complete my voice over, and pack up my stuff to wrap up the busy day. Usually, we’d watch a clip in her favorite Youtube channel, read about her current favorite scary story, or just simply talk about how exciting her day was," he shared in the caption.
He continued, "Occasionally, she would join me as I struggle to learn new songs on the guitar. But there’s this one song that’s a favorite of mine. And little did I know that someone was always listening closely while I play the song."
"Tonight, that little one just walked up to me while I was in the middle of studying ‘I am I Said’ of Neil Diamond. She went behind the guitar, hugged it from my standpoint, and started to strum. She said, 'Dad, let’s sing this song.'"
It was then that Dingdong started to record a video of Zia while singing and playing the guitar.
"She did her thing. She strummed—not yet with chords ha—and sang. In the process of executing each stroke, each breath—I was melting," he said.
"She calls this song 'When The Night'...☺️ Well, she can call it whatever she wants. What’s sure is that I'll stand by her, even if the moon is the only light we’ll see! Naaakanam!! 😉" he added.
