Dwayne Johnson Sings 'Moana' Song to 3-Year-Old With Cancer

November 20, 2019

If you’re prone to crying, you may need to grab some tissues for this one. Dwayne Johnson has proved there are still good people out there!

“The Rock” shared a special video on Instagram that he made for a major "Moana" fan -- a 3-year-old boy with cancer.

In the video, Johnson told 3-year-old Hyrum Harris that he heard the boy was a fan of Maui, the deuteragonist in the film, before breaking into one of the character's songs.

The actor started the video and said, “This message is for a little boy out there. He's 3 years old. And this little boy is one of the coolest little boys around, and he's certainly one of the strongest because he is a fighter. And right now this little boy, he's in the fight of his life."

Johnson introduced himself to Hyrum while pretending he was fan of the animated film instead of its star.

"I heard that you love a movie called 'Moana,' which is crazy, because I love that movie, too,” he said. “And I also heard that you watch ‘Moana’ almost 10 times a day because the character you love, Maui, gives you strength.”

“I don’t know Maui, but, like you, I love Maui, but it’s so cool that you find strength in Maui,” he continued.

“I just wanted to send you a video to let you know how much I love Maui, too. And I love Maui so much I know a little bit of his song,” he said before he belted out part of “You’re Welcome” from the movie.

“This request came across my desk and punched me in the gut a bit,” he captioned the clip. “There’s a little 3 year old boy out there named, Hyrum Harris. Diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia which is complicated by Down Syndrome. In the fight of his life right now and doing his best to stay strong - by watching MOANA up to 10xs a day because the character he loves, MAUI makes him feel strong.”

Johnson continued, "According to Hyrum’s mama, his most important thing to say now is, I STRONG. Yes you are big man. Yes you are. Hyrum, I know I’m a complete stranger to you - who sounds a lot like your hero, MAUI (only with a very large head), but myself along with millions of other strangers who will watch this video are sending you so much love, strength and mana your way. I STRONG. Love, the Rock aka the dude who sounds a lot like Maui.”
