The hit children's song Baby Shark isn't the typical musical request Marti Gould Cummings receives at their drag brunch in New Jersey, but when a 2-year-old customer asked for the song, Cummings just couldn't refuse.


During last week's Saturday drag brunch at Talde restaurant in Jersey City, drag queen Marti Gould Cummings decided to play "drag roulette", a game where the audience "picks a bunch of songs for us to perform at random."

There are typically a couple of kids in the audience for the show, Cummings told NBC, but most prefer to stare at screens during the lively performance.


Let me know you found me here!


Last week though one toddler was all about the show. When asked what he wanted to hear a 2-year-old audience member had a special request.


"I asked the little boy what he wanted to see performed, because he had been paying attention when I got to their table, and he asked for 'Baby Shark,'" said Cummings.

"When a 2 year old comes to brunch you perform baby shark for them!!!"

Not wanting to disappoint, Cummings spoke to the show's DJ about making it happen.

"The DJ quickly found the song online, and we added it to the playlist for him."

When the song came on, Cummings joined the toddler in clapping and swaying along to the tune.

The heartwarming performance was caught on camera and posted across social media where it received over 600,000 views.

When it was posted, people couldn't help but love the adorable scene.








And Cummings thanked everyone for the warm response to the performance.



Though some weary parents weren't nearly as excited to hear the popular song once again.






But by the looks of it, Cummings has just found a whole new audience for the show.





The video, however, has received its share of criticism online, but Cummings who also works as a political activist, is paying it no mind.



While some seem to feel a drag show is no place for kids, Cummings wholeheartedly disagrees.

"Anyone who thinks drag isn't for children is wrong," Cummings told NBC News. "Drag is expression, and children are such judgment-free beings; they don't really care what you're wearing, just what you're performing."

"It would be nice if us adults could let the child inside of us out for a little bit, so maybe we could all be a little more accepting of others ourselves."

You've probably heard that we live in the golden age of television. That's awesome.

As a child, I saw Sleeping Beauty and could not get over how messed up Maleficent was. She cursed a child because she wasn't invited to the birthday party?! Who does that?! Has she never heard of therapy?

She later turns into a dragon to try and kill a prince before he can reach the film's titular character and save the day. It's a downright creepy scene, actually. Short but thrilling.

And what about Cinderella? Who knew Disney movies could introduce us to the horrors of child abuse? The Evil Stepmother needs a therapist, too. (Did you know that both Maleficent and the Evil Stepmother were voiced by the same actress? It probably explains a lot.)

Time flies... before you know it, it's gone. Suppose there are things you really want to do: Getting into certain habits is a lot easier to do when you're younger. It's a lot easier to go to the gym and exercise on a regular basis, for example, when you're in 20s than when you're in your 30s, 40s, or 50s.

But there's nothing wrong with starting now––you'll notice the benefits eventually.

There are basic life lessons that are life-saving and cost-effective that we are all intimidated by but, in actuality, they take all of a few minutes to acquire. We all condition ourselves to believe that certain skills in life are just too complex for regular joes to master. The truth is... you do not need an Ivy League degree to learn how to clean out the water heater, clip your pet's nails, or change out a toilet. Who knew? So many of us have been forced to acquire new skills while we've been trapped at home and we're going to be better off for it.

Redditor u/goodspeed19 wanted to know what lessons we should all be learning while stuck in quarantine that will make us more useful in the future by asking..... What's a skill you can learn in 30 minutes to one hour that is extremely useful/cool?
