Baby to 7-years-old: A daddy-daughter performance of “Moon River”

Watch more with these video collections:

In this lovely performance of Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer‘s Moon River, seven years pass by in six and a half minutes.

British classical pianist Paul Barton and daughter Emilie Barton play the classic song on a piano and on a melodica, a breath-powered portable keyboard. He introduces the song to her as a baby and, over the years, she learns how to play and sing it as a solo pianist.
