A video of a father and his aspiring singer and songwriter daughter’s ‘A Star Is Born’ duet is going viral on the Internet.
Autumn Gillispie and her father, Randy Gillispie, performed the famous song ‘Shallow’ in their living room and shared the video on Facebook.
The video instantly went viral and the 14-year-old became an Internet sensation overnight.
Autumn, who has written three original songs, said she “definitely wants to take it professionally.”
Her father, who was beaming with glee in the video when his daughter was singing, said:
“It was a typical night in our house. Same thing, just mixing songs up. It was just another night. Nothing different than what we always do.”
“We had just watched the movie. And listening to the song, the passion they sang it with, I just thought ‘wow’. We are down here every evening down this anyway and Gaga’s music is in Autumn’s wheelhouse. So I said, ‘Autumn, what do you think about this song?’ She tried it out and destroyed it right off the bat. And I said, ‘well I guess I will try his part’ and the next thing you know, we did it.”
“Getting the opportunity to sing with her is an honor because she’s so good.
When you get to hear that every night sitting in the living room, basically a mini-concert, it’s really crazy.It’s something everyone should hear. And hopefully, they get to. ”
“If she goes big, I’m going to be standing there. I’m just in the picture. I’m in the song and there just needed to be a male voice in there. So as far as who was showcased and who the real talent is in this family, you’ve seen it for yourself, she’s special. She was born a superstar and this just validates that.”
Autumn said about the video which went viral:
“I didn’t believe it at first. My mom told me, she said, ‘Autumn, it has like 200,000 views,’ and I said ‘wow, that’s crazy.’ Then I was in the car with my aunt and she was like, it’s almost hitting one million so I was shocked. I didn’t believe it and then it just kept going from there.”
“I mean, I looked at the video and thought wow that’s a really good video and it sounds good and all that and she killed it. It’s just hard to believe. We’re just a working-class family from West Virginia and this has just gone worldwide. It’s awesome. I thought, well this is just another one of those songs. But wow, I think I was wrong.”
