Every child has a few special gifts that become apparent in their early years. Taking after her mother Crystal Luckett and her aunt Cathy, Chloe Luckett has been singing since she was two-years-old.
“I love singing,” said the 8-year-old. “It’s my favorite activity. It makes me feel happy.”
Singing isn’t the only gift for Chloe.
As the pandemic forced families to limit social activities and gatherings, Crystal decided to purchase a keyboard.
Crystal is a church musician at First Missionary Baptist Church in Stuttgart and Chloe sings in the youth choir. Quarantining at home, Crystal said when she brought the keyboard home Chloe was adamant about playing.
“I had purchased a keyboard from a second-hand store and she kept bugging me to teach her how to play,” said Crystal. “She kept insisting so I said well it won’t hurt to teach her just one song.”
That was three months ago.
Catching on overnight, Crystal said she was surprised that her daughter was very musically inclined and every time she looks up, Chloe is on the keyboard.
“She’s so eager to learn,” said Crystal. “She uses a program on her phone that teaches her how to play in different keys.”
Now one song has turned into four songs with an original composition written by Chloe herself titled “I Can’t Stop Thanking You”.
“I wrote it to have fun and to give thanks to the Lord,” said Chloe who said during the pandemic her song is very important. “When I get to sing my song I wrote that will be my first time playing the piano at the church.”
Chloe will get to premiere her song in church this Sunday and hopes her song will make those who hear it feel good.
“I love playing the piano and I’ve always been impressed watching my mom play,” said Chloe. “Singing and playing is just so beautiful to me.”
