A heartwarming video showed a teenage girl signing the lyrics of a song to her deaf father at a rock concert. The video was shot at a Three Days Grace concert in Canada and was filmed by Jules Maria, who described the moment as 'absolutely mesmerizing.' "At last night's concert, we witnessed something absolutely beautiful. Keep In mind this was a rock concert (Three Days Grace in Edmonton)," wrote Maria as a caption in a Facebook post along with the video. "We saw this girl and a man who seemed to require a lot of dancing room, irritating at first until we realized what was happening. Her father is deaf, she was signing the lyrics to him. We couldn't care less about what was happening on stage, watching them was absolutely mesmerizing. They were both very sweet and her father was very proud of his daughter." The video has since been removed from Facebook.


The video was shot about three years ago but has resurfaced, and is still adored. The people in the video are Darrin Carberry and his daughter Kari Carberry, who was 19 at the time. Darrin was 53 at the time. He was born deaf but wears a hearing aid in one ear that helps with some hearing, said daughter, reported CNN. Watching the concert together was particularly emotional for the pair, given that it was her dad that introduced her to the band. "He is the one who got me listening to the band," she said. "When I saw they were going to be in Edmonton, my dad was the first person I asked to go with me." 


Kari Carberry noticed people taking video of her signing for he father at the concert but she was in the moment, creating a beautiful memory with her dad. The video went viral on the internet and caught the eye of the band. Three Days Grace were touched by the moment and shared it on their Facebook page, writing, "This is the coolest thing on the internet right now!!!" The band's drummer personally reached out to Kari Carberry after watching the video. One of the members of the band paid for a pair of hearing aids for Darrin that he's been needing for years. "For one of them to reach out personally was really cool," she said.


She has been swamped with heartwarming messages from strangers since the video went viral. "I've received so many messages from across the world of people commenting on the video," said Kari. "The responses have been overwhelming." She said they had plans to go to other concerts as well, including some of her favorites: Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman, or Metallica. "We are definitely will be looking for more concerts in the future," said Kari. She spoke to Good Morning America about the experience. "It was our first concert together. I feel absolutely shocked and amazed at all of the views and responses we have been getting! It's an amazing feeling and we're both very happy that everyone around the world is enjoying it so much," she added.
