For most of us, Sunday nights with the family are synonymous with good food, decent conversation and (best-case scenario) a strong sense of togetherness.
But for the LeBaron family, these get-togethers are extra special.
This past Easter, the family came together to perform “One Day More” from the musical “Les Miserables.” How was it? Let’s just say that not every family can sing like this.
A family member posted a video of the song to Facebook, and it has since gotten more than nine million views.
Give this talented family a listen, and you’ll definitely see what all of the hype is about:
Not your typical Sunday night with the family — unless you’re a part of the LeBaron family, that is. According to Jayson LeBaron, this is something he and his siblings grew up doing together with their family.
“We’ve all grown up singing together and we all married musically talented people,” he told 24News. “My dad plays the piano and has been our accompanist growing up and my mom has been our music director. We all got involved with musical theater and did a lot of shows in high school and college. Music has been a unifying thing in our family, though we are all over Utah now from Kaysville to Salt Lake to St. George; we come together in the good times and during the trials with music keeping us real, and keeping us together, and keeping us happy.”
And you can tell how typical an evening like this is by the way the kids playing in the background of the video are totally indifferent to what’s going on around them. For them, this is just your average family get-together. Can you imagine?
Blindsided by the internet’s response to their Facebook post, they created a YouTube channel which, at the moment, only contains that one video. Stay tuned for more! We can’t wait to see what they perform next.
“We are just a music loving family from Utah and hope to inspire others to love, laugh, and sing with their families,” they wrote on YouTube.
Here’s a picture of the entire family:
Apparently, the video was intended to be a Mother’s Day gift, which is adorable.
“We recorded this because my mom wanted this as a present for her for Mother’s Day,” said Jordon LeBaron, who posted the video to Facebook, in an interview with Deseret News. “That’s the only thing she wanted. So we got together and my brother pulled up the karaoke track. We ran through it a couple times and then we recorded it. We honestly didn’t expect a response of this magnitude.”
If you aren’t familiar with “Les Miserables,” it’s a musical based on a novel by the same name written by Victor Hugo. The musical first took the stage in 1980 and has been taking audiences by storm ever since.
It tells the story of a French peasant, recently released from prison after serving 19 years for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving nephew. The story unfolds against the backdrop of 19th-century France during a revolutionary period.
