A 19-year-old daughter attending a rock concert in Canada made certain that her father, who is deaf, had an amazing time, too.
For some teenagers, attending a concert with a parent is embarrassing or annoying.
But for 19-year-old Karri Carberry, attending the Three Days Grace concert with her dad, Darrin Carberry, was an absolute blast.
The duo bought tickets to the rock concert in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, intent on dancing the night away together and creating a really fun father-daughter memory.
Darrin Carberry is deaf, meaning Karri is likely very comfortable signing with him in a variety of situations, including loud, chaotic rock concerts.
As Karri Carberry enthusiastically signed the lyrics to her father, she didn’t notice that the people behind her were more interested in what she was doing than what was happening on stage.
After a song ended, Jules Maria, fellow concertgoer, told Carberry that she was enamored by the way she communicated with her dad.
“We were in the crowd just having fun and I decided to start signing the lyrics to my dad so he could know which songs were playing,” Carberry told Yahoo Lifestyle.
“A lady had come up to me after one of the songs and said that she recorded it, hoping that I didn’t mind, and told me how amazing it was to witness something like that.”
Maria posted the video on her Facebook page, explaining how the beautiful moment unfolded:
“We saw this girl and a man who seemed to require a lot of dancing room,” Maria wrote.
“Irritating at first until we realized what was happening. Her father is deaf, she was signing the lyrics to him.”
Maria went on to say that she was fascinated with watching the father and daughter’s adorable bond.
“We couldn’t care less about what was happening on stage, watching them was absolutely mesmerizing,” Maria wrote.
“They were both very sweet and her father was very proud of his daughter.”
Karri Carberry never expected that complete strangers would be so moved by her simple gesture. To her, it’s just a girl talking with her dad, but outsiders find the scene heartwarming and adorable.
“People are telling me they are moved to tears by this video and there is so much positive feedback,” Carberry said.
“It’s all a little overwhelming but at the same time it’s all so surreal!”
