I dare you to watch this without melting

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 10/20/16

This video has gone viral and caused a sensation—and for good reason:

A 4-year-old from East Texas has become the latest Internet star after a video of him reciting his ABC’s went viral. Meet Tanner Hemness. Tanner is the son of Katie Hemness and KLTV 7 Anchor Taylor Hemness. He’s also really smart. This summer, his dad taught him the alphabet – but with a twist. Each letter had a biblical verse following it that corresponded to the letter.

Just watch.
