Adorable Toddler Belts Out Christian Gospel Song from Back of Grandma's Car in Video


Prepare to be blessed by the musical stylings of a toddler named Demetrius, otherwise known as Mr. Better Than Blessed.

Demetrius Fisher inadvertently rose to fame in 2016 after his grandmother, Lydia Majette, posted a video of her grandson singing when he was just 23 months old.

Since then, Demetrius’ “Better Than Blessed” video has been viewed over one million times.

One glimpse of this precocious child (he’s four now!), and you’ll understand why his spunky singing style has captured hearts around the world.

From the back seat of his grandmother’s car, the toddler took notice when the gospel song, “Better Than Blessed” by Louise ‘Candy’ Davis started playing.

Demetrius perked right up and started to sing along, timidly at first.

But before long, this baby boy was taking everyone to church with his unabashed gospel-loving singing voice.

According to Demetrius’ family, doctors suggested his parents terminate their son’s life before he was born because of a heart condition they thought would be fatal.

His parents refused and at just five days old, baby Demetrius had open heart surgery. He spent a few months eating through a feeding tube and is now healthy as can be.

Demetrius certainly has a reason to consider himself blessed, but nobody could have predicted the child would become such a blessing to total strangers around the world.

“We had no idea that so many would be so blessed by him,” Majette wrote on YouTube. “We are humbled and forever grateful for the caring and sharing from so many around the world.”

Majette added that her grandson has now moved into actively singing at church, complete with grabbing the microphone and showing off some dance moves.

He’s steadily building up his repertoire of gospel tunes, ready to bless whoever wants to listen to the sweet little soul.

Demetrius comes from a family who firmly believes that God is good and they count each grandchild as a special, precious gift from God.

Thank you, Mr. Better Than Blessed for sharing your adorable self with the world. We are excited to keep an eye on this budding little musician.
