A Filipino father is winning the hearts of many people online after performing in the audience to help guide his shy daughter on stage at one of her school’s events.
Rjay Tolentino, a 35-year-old father of four, is going viral after being filmed dancing to the Hula to help his daughter, 6-year-old Lyra Jaz, during her Festival of Talent performance under the kindergarten category in Pasig City, Philippines, on March 9.
Thanks to her dad’s undying support, Lyra was able to perform incredibly well in the contest. Tolentino, meanwhile, explained that he did the Polynesian dance routine to help his daughter become more comfortable on stage as she followed his moves.
“I knew my girl had stage nerves, so I just tried to do everything I could to make her feel better,” Tolentino said, as reported by Daily Mail.
