“Awesome! (And please note, she is singing in Russian, only underscoring the horrors of Putin’s war.),” McFaul tweeted.

“I’ve been in tears all day watching video footage on twitter with so many people suffering and dying at the hands of putin, but this is a blessing to watch this sweet innocent little darling girl sing. God bless you and thank you for giving everyone hope,” another person reacted.

“I’m crying. This touched me so. May her joy of song and inner strength never dim,” actress Tamara Torres tweeted.

“I had no idea it would have the success that it has. The song is, people think you know, you’d get sick of a song like that, but you don’t,” the Tony winner told Fox News. 

“When a song brings you that kind of success, but also connects you with an audience in such a profound way, when it really connects with young people, when it has a message like it has, I don’t get tired of singing it. Usually there’s some young person in front of me that’s never seen me sing live and so I can sing it to them and keep it fresh. It’s introduced me to a whole new audience and it’s something I will always be grateful for.”
