Montreal Toddler Auguste Majkowski Hears Music For First Time (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:


The look on his face is priceless. His dance moves are even better.

Montreal Toddler Auguste Majkowski heard music for the very first time over the weekend. His reaction will break your heart.

Majkowski was born deaf but thanks to an experimental brain stem implant he is beginning to learn to hear. The three-year-old boy had brain surgery performed by a team of doctors from California in June and the results have been dramatic.

Majkowski's mother Sophie Gareau began researching the surgery after seeing a viral video of North Carolina Toddler Grayson Clamp hearing his father's voice for the first time, according to CBC. She got in touch with the doctors in California and the rest is history.

Gareau told Global she wanted her son's first song to be "Over The Rainbow" but wrote on her Facebook page that she won't complain that it ended up being "Ma Baker" by Boney M.

With dance moves like those, we think disco was the right choice.
