A video of a father singing to his dying infant son has been grabbing the attention of thousands.

The video shows the dad, Chris Picco, singing "Blackbird" to his son, Lennon J. Picco, who was delivered by emergency C-section by his mother, Ashley.

Ashley, 30, unexpectedly and tragically passed away in her sleep following the emergency C-section. 

According to the video description, Lennon's lack of movement and brain activity was a constant concern for the doctors and nurses at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital, where he received the absolute best care available. 

"During the pregnancy, Ashley would often feel Lennon moving to music so Chris asked if he could bring his guitar into the NICU and play for Lennon, which he did for several hours during the last days of Lennon's precious life," K.C. Hohensee wrote.

Baby Lennon, 24 weeks old, died on Tuesday.
