Honey the family pet loves long car rides with her owner, especially when Michael Jackson’s hit song “Will You Be There” (from the movie Free Willy) comes on the radio. From the first piano notes, Honey is beside herself with emotion and starts belting out along with the King of Pop!
Just like Jackson’s lyrics, “Hold me like the River Jordan, and I will then say to thee, ‘you are my friend,’” couldn’t be more appropriate as dogs love to be held and are also man’s best friend.
The adorable video was posted by I Love My Dog, a Facebook group made up of dog lovers who share precious, uplifting, and funny moments with their pets. Honey, a beautiful black-and-white mix, lifts her head up to the ceiling, howling and praising the music legend. She hits some high notes in the intro of the song as if she’s singing along with Jackson’s church choir.
Some dogs love MJ and others love the news… “My dog sings to the nightly news with Lester Holt song! Every night. We all join him!” added Facebook user Lori John Edwards, who liked the video of Honey singing in the car.
Jackson was a pop culture icon and phenomenon whose music continues to influence and inspire canines and humans alike, such as the little boy whose mommy catches him dancing to “Thriller,” and the female a cappella group from South Korea whose version of “Beat It” went viral.
