Kids light up any room with their joy, laughter, and innocence. But some light up rooms just a little bit brighter with their voices. Westin Wrylle Asidor is doing just that. He sings the cutest version you will ever hear of ‘Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone.)’. This was his first solo music video because he comes from a large musical family.
The Asidors are a Christian family from the Philippines. Since 1996 the family has traveled all over the country sharing God’s love and the gospel through singing. They’ve performed at churches, Christian gatherings, crusades, and other events. Worship has been their passion in life because when their father, M. Asidor Sr was a teenager, he dreamt of angels singing in heaven. Those angels were his children. With his wife, they have nine children with Westin being the youngest.
Westin isn’t shy about performing since he was born into this musical family but this video was his first solo. The sweet little man stood in front of the microphone with a smile wearing a khaki-colored suit. When he reached the chorus, he raised both of his hands, seemingly interpreting what the lyrics really mean.
The video was released on September 4 and it quickly went viral, garnering 217,602+ views. It has blessed thousands of viewers claiming that watching Westin is truly inspiring.
One viewer, Sharon wrote, “Oh that face that precious innocent face, filled with beauty and much grace! How sweet the innocent children are to fear the LORD Almighty! God Bless and thanks for sharing this precious gift with us he brought a few tears to my eyes! Just the cutest Light to see in these darkest times!”
In case you didn’t notice, Westin is singing a version of Amazing Grace that was written by Chris Tomlin. However, the song was originally written by John Newton in 1779 in light of his conversion to Christianity and abandonment of his career as a slave trader.
Indeed, when we meet Jesus, he sets us free from our chains and Westin’s voice adds a whole new element of joy to this amazing freedom!
“This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace” Colossians 1:6
