DeMarcus uploaded the video in hopes to find the family. She said, 'To make things even better, they were right in front of me at checkout.'
If one finds a phone somewhere, they usually submit it to the lost and found department or try to look around for the person to whom the phone belongs. But this fun family recorded a video message after finding a stranger's phone at Walmart to provide the owner with some details. In the TikTok video, later uploaded by @michelledanielledemarcus, the family of five can be seen singing a song. The father sings, "We found your phone! We found your phone!” The mother harmonizes, "He found your phone! He found your phone! And we found your phone!” “In the baby section! In the baby section!” While their sons seem excited to join the chorus, their daughters look embarrassed.
DeMarcus uploaded the video, hoping to find the family. She said, "To make things even better, they were right in front of me at checkout,” DeMarcus explained. “I didn’t see the video until I got home." The video soon went viral with over 1.2 million views. It is captioned, "This family it’s literally the cutest thing!!!! I hope they see this!" DeMarcus did manage to find the family. @blendedbugbys commented, "Bahahaha it was us! Hahahaha we had so much fun with us!!!" She responded, "Oh my gosh.!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy this found you.!!!!!

Many on the social media platform enjoyed the family's song. @brittschmitt87 commented, "I just know they drove away in the van and laughed about this the entire way home! 😂" @marielorraine86 commented, "everything happens for a reason... you lost your phone so we can all have this gem!!😅" @kaitlynsalvin commented, "This is probably the purest funniest thing 😂😂 I’m glad out of everyone, THEY found your phone !! 😂" @xomorgan222 commented, "Every single person deserves to have a childhood like this.

In another story, a mom @meems1980 requested musicians on TikTok if they could play her daughter's written music. She says in the video, "So my 10-year-old daughter wrote this. Could somebody play this? I need to know, I need to know if it's any good or makes any sense." The video went viral with more than 4 million views. It was the first time that Mimi Wallace's daughter wrote the music and as a mother, she was curious to know how it sounded, according to classicfm.
An entire string orchestra called NAfMe Northwest String Educators responded to Wallace's request with a multi-part arrangement. It was posted by @poshprofessor, who goes by the name Christopher T.F. Hanson. He captioned it, "@meems1980 we decided to orchestrate your daughter's beautiful melody and read it at the NAfME (National Association for Music Education) Northwest Division Conference in Bellevue, WA. Thank you for sharing her music with us! We hope you like our arrangement and performance."
Many on the platform just loved the performance. @clifplewis commented, "This is what we should use social media for 💜"@erzon.lev commented, "You just created a core memory for that little girl. Well done!"
