The video even got a share from Lil Nas X himself.

A video of a four-year old Minnesota boy singing the hit song "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X has gone viral, garnering over 1.4 million views.

The video was posted to Twitter by Sheletta Brundidge, a producer at WCCO Radio and and host of the Two Haute Mamas podcast.

While the video itself is only nine seconds long, what makes it so incredible is that Sheletta's son Daniel has autism and is mostly non-verbal.

“I just…I started crying,” Brundidge told Fox 9. “The tears were flowing down my face. They were dropping off my chin and hitting the top of his head.”

The miracle was also a learning moment.

"...it let us all know, which we didn’t know before, that he could learn without being taught. That he could hear something and remember it and then recall it to you.”

Daniel's therapist has even begun using the song in his sessions and looking for other songs he may respond to as well.

Say what you will about the most controversial song of the moment, it's changing this Minnesota boy's life for the better!
