Busker at Orchard Road Agreed to Request to Sing Baby Shark; Effort Paid Off as Video Went Viral


There’s no better feeling than requesting a song from a busker and having it played immediately.

Especially if you are a toddler and the song is “Baby Shark”.

Requested “Baby Shark” the First Time

For a three-year-old toddler, Baby Evee (her real name is Eve), hearing “Baby Shark” on Youtube was not cutting it anymore.

And while passing by Jason Yu busking along Orchard Road, she mustered up the courage to ask him whether he could play the song for her.

Unfortunately, Yu did not know how to play the song and Eve left disappointed.

The whole encounter was filmed and posted on TikTok by Eve’s mother who regularly posts videos of Eve.


I did tell her he probably won’t do it, but she made me wait until he’s done with his song just so she could ask herself 😅

Since the TikTok was uploaded on 9 May, it has garnered over 1.6 million views, with many netizens “demanding” that Yu learn the song immediately.

Busker Learns the Song

And that was exactly what he did.

In a follow-up TikTok video, Yu explained that he had actually searched up the chords right after Eve made her request, realising the song was quite simple.

However, Eve and her mother had already left by the time he looked up.

“It was a bit of a wasted opportunity,” Yu said, before promising to play “Baby Shark” if they ever passed by him busking again.

“Baby Shark” is Finally Played the Second Time

Fortunately, the opportunity presented itself again.

On 16 May, Eve’s mother uploaded another video showing her politely requesting the song once again. And this time, her request was acceded to by Yu.

As Yu sang the familiar lyrics of the children’s song, Eve could be seen dancing and running around joyously to the music.

At the end of the video, Eve was shown giving Yu a big hug before excitedly running back toward her mother. Awww.

Wholesome moments indeed.
