Watch little girl start a dance party on NYC subway platform

By JohnThomas Didymus     Dec 6, 2014 in Internet
New York City - A little girl whose happiness couldn't be smothered by the detached gloom of commuters in cold weather was able to warm bundled up adult bodies and liven spirits at Bedford Avenue L Subway Station in Williamsburg, Brooklyn recently.
The band Coyote and Crow was performing a cover of "Me & My Uncle" by Grateful Dead when the little girl dressed in pink began dancing to the music.
The girl danced with a child's energetic and unaffected spontaneity to music by the subway buskers as commuters watched unwilling to shake off the effect of the cold weather and dance along. But a woman, possibly her mom, joined her and before long a full blown dance party was going on the platform as commuters who were waiting for the train finally couldn't resist the contagion of the child's happy spirit.
The dancing helped to warm everyone up in cold weather and soon the atmosphere was merry and lively. When the song was over everyone applauded the little girl whose dance moves helped brighten up their day as she ran into the arms of a man, likely her proud father.
The video was originally recorded in November but posted to YouTube by Coyote and Crow on Dec. 4, 2014.
It has gone viral with over 1.6 million views.
Coyote and Crow is described on its website as a "married couple from New York's North Country living in Brooklyn" making their living "busking around New York City" and playing "a mash up of folk-americana, bluegrass, and old time music with a big influence from rock'n'roll and early 60's psychedelic rock."
Buskers stage street performances in the hope of receiving donations of money, food, drinks and other gifts. Traditionally, busking includes all forms of performance arts such as clowning, acrobatics, drama, juggling and magic.
