Man Busts Epic Move To Favorite Jackson-5 Song, Goes Viral

Nothing can make a person jump with excitement quite as much as hearing their favorite song. Especially when you’re at a concert that hails from the same era as the old favorite. Music is nostalgia after all, particularly for this Jackson-5 dancer!

No one feels that more than this gentleman who was caught dancing on video at a Janet Jackson concert. On November 15th, Lashea Battle was taking in the setting of the show at intermission with her phone on Facebook live. The venue began playing the famous hit I Want You Back by the group Jackson-5.

That’s when she caught Vic Picinich getting his groove on like it’s 1969! The man might be middle-aged, but as soon as he heard the old favorite playing from the speaker, he was a young kid again. The instant he recognizes the song, Picinich jumps to his feet and starts busting out moves so epic, you’d think he was trained!

What makes this video so lovable is the feeling the California native puts into his impromptu dance! He’s got so much energy oozing through him, you can’t help but smile wide when you see it. What’s more amazing is the freedom with which he dances.

As we grow up, most of us lose that bodacious attitude that allows us to grab life by the horns and ride the moment. Not this guy though! You won’t want to miss how he jumps to his feet in excitement, so give us a like if you love seeing stuff like this and continue to the next page!

When the Astros won the World Series this year, it was an emotional event for thousands. Not having played in the championship game since 2005, and losing badly, taking home their first World Series win brought up a lot of feelings for everyone. Even so, no one felt quite as grateful as Astros catcher and former transient, Evan Gattis.

Life has its ups and downs for everyone, but some have a bumpier ride than most. Evan is one of these people. Unlike many major league players, Evan hasn’t been in the game since high-school. Not that he wasn’t offered the chance.

Both Texas A&M and Rice University offered him a scholarship right out of high school. After all, the lightning fast catcher showed a lot of promise. Unfortunately though, Evan had a fear of failure so severe it caused him to turn the offers down.

The same fears holding him back from pursuing a career in baseball also caused Gattis to seek comfort in drugs and alcohol. So when the time came to decide where to go in life, he chose to check himself into rehab. Not the most conventional choice of a scouted athlete!

We’ve only begun to uncover this Astros catcher’s story, so prepare to be inspired! Continue to the next page to see the video highlighting his amazing journey to success, and don’t forget to leave us a comment below.

Meet The Little Drummer Girls!

Until pretty recently, the realm of percussion has largely been dominated by males. Not that there is anything wrong with that! In fact, we couldn’t be more thankful for the likes of John Bonham, Dave Grohl, Mike Portnoy, Lars and the like! We have been so percussively blessed.

That being said, it has been a long time coming that females started showing up on the drumming scene and laying down beats to rival the greats. So what could be more impressive than competing with some of the best drummers on the planet? Doing it before you’re twenty!

We decided to throw these girls a bone (or stick?)  and create a list of 10 videos showcasing some of the world’s greatest female drummers, all under the age of 20. Watch out though! These beats will make you move!

10. Paulina Villarreal Velez– This 10 year old can pound the drums with the best of them! She is from Mexico where she is the drummer for a popular rock band there called The Warning. Let us warn YOU though, her nickname is shredder for a reason!

9. Kanade Sato-Not only can this girl beat the hell out of the drums, she’ll trick you too! This 12 year old prodigy walked up to a full drum set in the middle of a Japanese mall and took a seat. She picks up the sticks and starts tapping different heads as if she’s never played before, then shocks the crowd by playing this.

8. Luo Xiao Bai– Also known as S. White, this 15 year old is well known throughout Taiwan for her impromptu street performances. While she totally crushes it on the drums, she also steals the show with her excitement that courses through her music, right into her audience! See for yourself here.

Where Is This Child Prodigy Today?

Akiane Kramarik was first introduced to the nation as a child prodigy in 2003 when she painted two pieces titled Prince of Peace: The Resurrection, and Father Forgive Them. The realism the young child was able to produce in her paintings alone is noteworthy, but it’s her reply when asked where her inspiration comes from that has everyone captivated!

The two paintings are renditions of Jesus Christ that Akiane saw in what she describes as her “visions”. Akiane was born in 1994 in Mount Morris, Illinois. Her mother was a self-proclaimed atheist, and her father hailed from a non-practicing Catholic family.

So when the 4-year-old started drawing with a realism beyond her years, proclaiming the talent and visions were gifts from God, her mother was taken aback.

In several interviews, her mother explains that there is zero explanation as to how Akiane came to know about God or Jesus, or any of the other spiritually rich images she has created. The only explanation that has ever been given is the one that the young artist gives herself; she’s seen these people and places before, and God gave her the gift of her art to help bring people closer to Him.

As if the supernatural talent emblazoned in her imagery weren’t enough, her claims of seeing the true face of Jesus were solidified when the NY Times national bestseller book was released Heaven Is For Real. The nonfiction book is about a young boy named Colton Burpo who had a near-death experience at the age of four.

He had to undergo emergency surgery for a burst appendix and while he was on the table, he went to Heaven where he met angels, a great-grandpa he’d never met, and a miscarried sister he’d never been told about.

After the boy told his parents things he couldn’t have possibly known, they started pressing him for as much detail about his trip to heaven as possible. One thing they would do is show Colton hundreds of images of the face of Jesus, and according to Colton, none of them came close to Him.

Then one day, after three years of seeing and searching, Colton came across Akiane’s Prince of Peace: The Resurrection painting and told his father “They finally got it right!”  Continue to the next page to see the otherworldly experiences rendered by this little angel’s paintbrush!

Paul Servat gets the shock of his life after awaiting for his beloveds deliver of quintuplets. After months of awaiting this glorious day, Paul never imagined he would be told that he is not going to be a father.

35 year-old Paul Servat and 37 year old Barbra Bienvenue began dating after meeting each other on an online dating site. One month after meeting, girlfriend Barbra announces she is pregnant. “We were so happy,” Servat said. “Even my parents, they were so looking forward to having grandchildren.

But this pregnancy seemed strange” recalled friend Geneviève Laflamme. “In the beginning Barbra told me she was going to have twins, then twins turned into triplets and then somehow changed to quadruplets. She fooled everyone; Paul, me, the whole town and perhaps herself even!”

Think your children don’t have the right bedroom color or the right carpet to match the drapes? This will shock you.  Read the rest of this entry

You can never escape the fact that one day you too will stand proud as a grandmother or a grandfather. You might think, “Oh! That’s a long, long time away! I’m still young, why should I think of the golden years now?” That’s true, you’re young (even at early 40s! :p), but someday you will get there, we’ll all get there – the golden years of our lives. Imagine at that time, your family isn’t as connected to you as you wished they were? What if, at that time, your grandchildren enjoyed being left alone than being around you? I hate to mention this, but from where I come, people move on faster than they can ever imagine.

Being a mother, I sometimes see my children and wonder, “Would this kind of environment have any effect on how they would treat me when I grow riper than the ripest banana?” I’ll be honest, it scares me, yes. Talking about myself, I’m still connected to the spirits of my late grandparents – for all I remember, they loved me, they cared and they were there for me. I still hold close a picture of them holding me when I was born! The smile on their faces melts my heart even today, and I thank them every day for making me possible! Learning to stay connected with grandparents is very important because as people grow in years, they seem to want more care.

They love being surrounded by people they love and care for, they love the idea of being an important person in the family and they love to be listened to and talked to. Who wouldn’t? Imagine a life where you have your entire family out in the garden, smiling and joking and you, the grandparent, are silently sitting inside because no one invited you out…heart-breaking isn’t it? Let’s remember our grandparents and let’s learn to connect with them so they always have a smile on their faces! Oh, and this is definitely going in my children’s Reading List!

I have little children so by the time I become a grandmother, you’ll have read this list a million times! Before my grandmother passed away, we used to talk about how she felt when she became a grandmother, whether she annoyingly felt old, whether she liked being a grandmother…and all I heard her say was, “I couldn’t believe it! I became a grandmother! Of course it felt scary, because it came with a whole set of new granny responsibilities, I certainly loved the idea of being able to share many happy years of memories, with you.”

According to a recent survey, 61% grandchildren stay in touch with their grandparents through phone calls, 10% through text messages and 9% through emails. Although I love using different technology to stay connected with people, I personally think that nothing can replace the impact of spending physical time with grandparents, whenever possible. Spending face-to-face time with grandparents will help families to keep an eye on your loving grandparents’ health and wellbeing. Here’s how you can make the most out of the personal time you spend with them:

Make a Family History Project Together

Take some time out and go through photo albums together, trade stories about family members and ask how they felt that very moment. My grandmother had a huge box of photographs and it would take me over a couple of hours to finish seeing them! The best part is that my grandmother remembered each and every moment, like it happened yesterday! She would tell me what transpired and what led to the photograph, which would magically take me back in time to see it happening again.

Say Yes To New Skills

What do you and your grandparents like doing? Whether it’s cooking, knitting, painting or sewing…pick something and share activities that you enjoy as a group. I taught my grandmother how to search the YouTube for her favourite videos and even showed her how to download it on the desktop! She also learned how to locate services on Google Maps and call in case she needed them. Boy did she love to order new scarves!

Maintain Family Traditions

If you think you can visit your grandparents every Sunday, do so every Sunday without fail. If you think you want to have dinner with them every Saturday, do so without fail. Maintain your family traditions so they have something and someone to expectJ. My grandmother always knew that Fridays were my days, so she would bake my favourite cookies and I would gift her, her favourite flowers. It was fun and I admit, I miss those times…Family traditions can provide an aged family member an opportunity to socialize and stay connected with family members, which can help minimize the feeling of being lonely or isolated.

Grandparents are a blessing, cherish the time you spend with them and treat them how you want to be treated when you’re as old as they are now…
