A family tradition turns into a viral moment when a man started singing at the Grand Floridian in Walt Disney World last week.
Justin Gigliello traveled with his family from Connecticut to Disney World. They were having lunch at the resort and he was telling his daughter Lyla how he used to go to the Grand Floridian with his parents to listen to the pianist play in the lobby. So, his daughter wanted to do the same thing.
Justin said he danced with his daughter for a couple of songs and then she went up to the pianist and told him that her dad plays and sings. The pianist went along and asked what song? She said “Ave Maria,” and the rest is Disney and Internet magic.
Reactions on Facebook were how the look on Lyla’s face while he is signing is priceless, and we agree.
Justin started singing when he was 15. “I used to sing as a kid with my dad. He used to play Beatles and Frank Sinatra records at home but I didn’t start taking lessons until 15.”
His parents signed him up with an opera coach and he fell in love with it. He ended up going to school at the Boston Conservatory.
