Drag queen performing 'Baby Shark' for a toddler wins the internet this week

Kinderling News & Features

It's not every day you hear of a drag queen performing 'Baby Shark'. But it's also not every day a two-year-old rocks up to a brunch-time drag show.

Marti Gould Cummings has won hearts the world over with her special rendition of the kindie hit sensation, which she sang specially for a toddler who attended 'What’s the Tea' - a brunch event she was performing at, at Talde, an Asian/American restaurant in New Jersey. 

In a clip shared by Marti on social media, you see her climb onto the table as she claps to the (arguably very annoying) song as the child beams at her, clapping along. 

Haters gonna hate

The video shows a happy kid being entertained by a professional performer. One that is going out of their way to make them feel included. 

However, that hasn't stopped some from complaining, saying that it was innappropriate for grown-ups to take a young child to such an event.

But Marti has no time for these negative comments. "Anyone who thinks drag isn’t for children is wrong," she told NBC.

"Drag is expression, and children are such judgement-free beings, they don’t really care what you’re wearing, just what you’re performing."

All's well that ends well

At the end of the day, the child and his family - he was there with his Uncle Chris - both walked away from the event having had a fun, memorable time together, with Chris posting on Marti's Twitter video to thank her:

Anyone else feel like finding a kid-friendly drag event now?
