This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
He's so cool, with his music skills, his park ranger hat and his immortal vampire blood/ageless face. LOLz!
We especially love when he gives an impassioned speech on gay rights and gets a very phallic hat!
Oh right! The performance!
The kids of the Detroit Academy of Arts & Sciences went viral with their cover of Pharrell's Happy. 80% of the school's students live at or below the poverty line and the school itself was struggling to stay afloat. Their dreams of sending their choir to Disneyworld for a performance seemed impossible.
That's where Ellen and Pharrell stepped in and did something incredible — they surprised them with something amazing… a giant check for $50,000!
In thanks, the choir performed their cover of Happy live on Ellen as Ms. DeGeneres and Pharrell clapped along. It's adorable.
Check out the video (above) to see these overjoyed kids singing Happy!
