We originally published this article on December 1st, highlighting the incredible mother-son dance that we said was starting to go viral. When this article was originally published, the video had just over 85,000 views and 1,700 shares.
In a little over 4 months, the Facebook video has racked up over 50 million views and over 898,000 shares – it’s now one of the most viewed Facebook videos in America so far this year.
The dance was a part of Myer’s Park High School’s annual talent show. Most people expected to be ‘wowed’ by some impressive acts, and bored by some that need a little more practice, but I doubt anyone expected a mother and son to perform “the history of dance” and become an overnight internet sensation.
The description under the video says it all, “THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO WORDS ~ This mother son duo with Mrs. Ginny Goodwin Jenkins & Scott Jenkins ROCKED it! 🐎🐎🐎”
The talent show featured an amazing diversity from almost every genre of music and dance, including;
A full-scale country band;
A choreographed dance to Yolanda Adams;
And a rather impressive traditional Indian performance;
Way to be awesome Myer’s Park!
