'This one is for Valentina, okay?' Joe Jonas announced before performing the piece close to every parent's heart.
Jonas Brothers' grand concert in Toronto last weekend was a wild experience for many. Held on August 19, the trio put up one of their best performances for the humongous crowd. There was excitement, joy, surprises and more. Amid the fun chaos, a wholesome moment was captured.
A fan took to Twitter to share the moving tribute the Jonas brothers dedicated to a concertgoer's late daughter. Posting snippets from the concert, @withlovejohana wrote, "Here is a video of Joe talking to Magda, Valentina's mom, the little bird that passed away. I can't breathe. Joe needs to be protected at all costs. So much love for Magda."
On Saturday, when the brothers were up on stage, they saw numerous signs, posters and more as they usually do. However, Joe’s eye caught something special. He saw among the crowd a lady holding a sign that read, "Dedicate 'Little Bird' for my angel in heaven." Upon noticing the sign, he asked for the lady to be brought forward closer to the stage and shared an emotional exchange with her. "I got choked up as I read the sign," he told her, before asking: "What's your little bird's name?" To this, the fan named Magda replied, "Valentina." Joe went on to comfort her with a hug and said to her, "This one's for Valentina, okay? She's here with us tonight, for sure."

Then, he and his brothers, Kevin and Nick, performed the song "Little Bird" in memory of Valentina. As millions of fans witnessed the moment, they were at a loss for words and could only have sympathy for Magda. The brothers being parents themselves found it heartbreaking to hear about little Valentina. The fan also posted a clip of Kevin Jonas holding back his emotions when Magda mentioned that her late daughter’s name was Valentina. Kevin's daughter is also named Valentina, so hearing Magda's story is likely to have hit close to home for him.
Y’all know Kevin is gonna get home and hug his girls tonight and hug Valentina even tighter in honor of Magda who can’t hug her Valentina 😩😩 I can’t pic.twitter.com/84bkUi81Dq— Jojo | (@withlovejohana) August 20, 2023
The song "Little Bird" was penned by the Jonas Brothers and their team and strongly reflects the emotional bond between parents and their children. It takes a gradual shift from the life of a daughter, from the time she is born, till she grows up to be a woman. The song revolves around parenting. It was a wholesome moment when Magda heard the Jonas brothers perform the piece for her little Valentina.

As parents, nothing is more painful than the thought of being away from our children. Magda felt that and there are no words to express her heartbreak. Several comments poured in for Magda as well as the Jonas brothers. Many even shared their views and experiences on the song and parenting. @xdieudonnee said, “All three of them felt this one a little extra tonight.” @aehc13 said, “I can’t begin to tell you how silent my section went when this happened. All our hearts broke.” Every parent felt what the Jonas brothers felt. Give your little birds an extra big hug today!
Saw the clip with only Joe and I thought “if i feel weirdly sentimental purely bc thats my name, cant imagine how Kevin feels as a dad hearing that”— vale✨ (@SelfStan) August 20, 2023
