VIRAL VIDEO: 4-year-old East Texan recites ABCs with twist
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - A 4-year-old from East Texas has become the latest Internet star after a video of him reciting his ABC's went viral.
Meet Tanner Hemness. Tanner is the son of Katie Hemness and KLTV 7 Anchor Taylor Hemness. He's also really smart.
This summer, his dad taught him the alphabet - but with a twist. Each letter had a biblical verse following it that corresponded to the letter.
Hemness posted the video to his personal Facebook page on Oct. 2. Since it was posted, the video has gone viral on Facebook reaching more than 4 million views, 56,000 likes, 38,000 shares and 12,000 comments.
Tanner's parents say they're proud of his accomplishment.
"I am so very proud of this kid. We've been working on this all summer, one letter a week, and every time I thought a verse was too long or complicated, he'd prove me wrong. Now the hard part ... being the kind of dad who helps him live these words," Taylor Hemness said.
