Adorable little Nevaeh loves to make people smile. Despite being non-verbal she often makes friends wherever she goes. Her sweet presence and charming smile tend to do the work. Her mother Kimberly Phillips volunteers at the local church. Little Nevaeh accompanied her mother in one of the church's programs to feed the poor.

That's where they met a homeless man named Teiyon. He asked the little girl whether she would join him in a song. Nevaeh was visibly eager to sing with him. She allowed him to pick her up while they sang this impromptu duet, and her mother recorded the whole interaction.

Kimberly shared the video along with a Facebook post talking about the positive responses. "We are deeply humbled by the outpouring of love we have received," she wrote. "We have met up several times since the video went viral and all we can do is look at each other in pure awe! Together these two have a powerful message!" she continued.

Millions of responses got multiplied after this post. That message stood as an inspiration for thousands of people to take up acts of kindness. Teiyon's old classmates recognized him from the video and offered to help him. Many reached out to him to help in any way they can.

Allendale Fairfax High students and Teiyon's classmates located him, poured in funds, and handed them over to him in person. They accompanied him to a barbershop where he got his braids done. This marked the beginning of a life-changing journey for Teiyon.

This story is a true example showcasing the power of generosity and kindness. Their song spread like wildfire, and so did their message.
