Selena Gomez’s Impromtu Dance with Adorable Girl

June 27, 2016


If it’s been a while since you’ve had your heart wrenched and filled up with joy; if it’s been some time since you’ve dared to hope for a better world; if it’s been a minute since you’ve been inspired by a young person of tremendous heart and love; and if you can’t remember the last time you were moved to tears by a simple act of kindness–we hope that’s not the case–then you might want to check out the latest viral video featuring Selena Gomez and little Audrey Nether dancing to beat the band! The seven-year-old Audrey is Selena’s biggest fan and she suffers from a rare blood disorder called Diamond-Blackfan anemia which inhibits the bone marrow from producing red blood cells; but, that doesn’t stop Audrey from getting her groove on every chance she gets! The two girls got down big time to Selena’s hit pop song Love You Like a Love Song, and the former Disney star shared the video on her snapchat account with the caption reading, “Finally got to meet this sweet heart. She owned it fully.”

As you travel through your own personal journey of blood, sweat, and tears, of heartache, and hopefully of triumph, never underestimate the value of what you do and what you bring to the world at large. A role or performance you undertake might inspire someone profoundly. Your work can have the power to bring unbridled joy and a sense of connection to others. A monologue you put your heart and soul into could very well give someone comfort in a time of dissolution. Have actors, actresses, films, and plays touched your heart and given you a reason to carry on in the face of abject despair? Yes, it’s so important to heal the sick and to protect the poor and to teach the children; but, it is also important to create art that honors the human condition and sheds light on the suffering, humor, and idiosyncrasies of our very existence. You, as an actor or actress, have a great charge and a great responsibility and a rich history to uphold; so uphold it every day of the year!
