Skye's the limit for little diva as Frozen singing strop goes viral with 700,000 hits

She is a star in the making.

The singing talents – and diva temperament – of a little Belfast girl have been showcased to a global audience after a video clip of her chastising her mother went viral.

Three-year-old Skye Gracey was captured by her parents throwing a bit of a strop as she tried to sing. Her mum and dad uploaded the endearing footage, which has now been viewed more than 700,000 times on the internet.

The little girl, who is a huge fan of Disney film Frozen, was filmed singing a song dressed as its lead character Queen Elsa. She is heard giving off to her mother Elena for giggling at her while she performed.

Over the last week online viewers have been in hysterics watching Skye scolding her mother, telling her to "stop laughing" and telling her she was being "a very bold girl".

"I'm warning you," the animated youngster said.

Last night Skye's father Mark, a computer technician, told the Belfast Telegraph he was astonished the video – filmed in July when Skye was two – had gone viral. He predicted his entertaining little diva will be a star of stage or screen – and will perhaps work in the music business when she is older.

"She is a massive fan of Frozen," Mark said. "She doesn't like to be disturbed. Her facial expressions made us laugh.

"She's a diva all right. She's a superstar, always singing – she likes to steal the show."

Skye can be seen in the clip getting very cross when her mother can't stop sniggering, warning her she is going to choke if she doesn't stop her outbursts.

When Elena keeps on laughing at her daughter's attempts, the feisty little girl then warns her she'll be put on the "naughty step" and that "the man" will take her away.

"It was a one-off situation," Mark added. "She was in her element singing and had to finish the song. I play guitar and she always wants to play it. She has her own wee piano and drums.

"She is destined for the stage, she loves music." The clip was popular on YouTube but since Storyful, a site which searches for promising social media content, approached the family the views of the amusing video have rocketed.

"Most people, about 80%, have been very positive about it," Mark said. "We never expected it when we put it on YouTube and then it shot off on other sites of viral videos with Storyful helping it along."

Another viral star from Belfast...

In July Belfast teenager Laurel May become an internet sensation after her family posted a funny video online of her being stumped by a basic maths question. Laurel was asked by her sister Amber what time she would arrive at a destination 80 miles away if she was travelling at 80mph and left at 2pm.

The 19-year-old now understands the answer is of course 3pm and not 3.20pm as her "minute per mile" theory previously concluded.
