Video of Waitress Singing Happy Birthday to Patron Wows the Internet

While some people get embarrassed when staff at a restaurant stop by to sing them a classic song on their birthday, one Cracker Barrel customer received a rendition of the song that another patron called 'the best ever.'

Jared Gravatt, a Marion, Illinois resident received a happy surprise when his server delivered a beautiful version of Happy Birthday for him earlier this month, captivating the entire restaurant.

Gravatt, who said he visits Crackel Barrel for breakfast about once a month, had family in town who took him out for his birthday breakfast.

"My dad likes to embarrass me and told the waitress that it was my birthday she said she would have someone sing happy birthday to me," Gravatt told Newsweek. "All of a sudden, Miranda came up to our table and started singing."

"I was blown away," he added.

"I think everyone was in shock. Her voice is incredible! She put on a show and gave it her all!" Gravatt said. "I felt so honored! I didn't even care people were watching."

Gravatt shared a 48-second-long video of her special talent on his TikTok page, and the waitress has since gained fans all over the internet.

"When I left the building I told my stepsister I was going to upload the video to TikTok and tell the people to find her and make her famous," he told Newsweek. "Within days the video had thousands of shares and millions of views."

He captioned it: "Tiktok, find this girl and make her famous, please. Best birthday song ever!!" The video has almost around a million views and thousands of shares.

"That was the best birthday I've ever heard," a person can be heard saying at the end of the video.

"That went from Ariana Grande to Christina Aguilera to Whitney Houston in forty-five seconds," commented one user.

Another asked Gravatt, "Did you fall in love?"

"When you patted your heart, best version, and reaction! Hope you had a great birthday," another commented.

The restaurant too shared the video on their Facebook page, writing, "We always want to make you feel cared for when you visit. Way to go, Miranda, who brought the house down with that performance!"

Gravatt, who wants Miranda's voice to be recognized by the world, ended up formally meeting and chatting with her after the performance.

"She was seriously the sweetest person! She has such a genuine heart! " Gravatt told Newsweek.

It appears many people online agree with Gravatt's goal of rocketing Miranda to stardom, with many making comments about record deals, talent contests, and more.

In another viral video, an orchestral choir who happened to be sitting nearby sang 'Happy Birthday' for a shocked patron at another restaurant.
