Dwayne Johnson Channels Maui for Special 3-year Old Boy
Dwayne Johnson has been doing alot of singing lately. We have seen him take to Instagram singing to his daughter his famous song “You’re Welcome” from Disney’s Moana as a way to make sure she is washing her hands for the full 20 seconds recommended by the CDC to kill the COVID-19 virus.

Before my showers now, Baby Tia (mama mia) demands I sing the rap portion of my song “You’re Welcome” from MOANA, while I wash her hands. We realized a few weeks ago that the rap portion of the song is perfect timing when getting your little ones to have fun washing their hands. Stay healthy and safe, my friends. D And gotta love how at the start of this vid, baby Tia is like, “just shut your mouth and sing daddy” 😂
But, this time he goes to Instagram not to sing to his daughter and not because of COVID-19. This time he wants to send a special message to a three-year old fan who is battling an illness. This young patient is a huge Maui fan and according to his parents, Maui has gotten him through some difficult times with his illness. Having heard this, Johnson and Maui had to respond.
Aiden Snyder, who according to Johnson is “the coolest kid on earth” has apparently been fighting a battle with a medical condition. Johnson sends Aiden a special message introducing himself as Maui from “Moana” and maybe Aiden will recognize his voice.
Johnson sends his love to Aiden’s parents in Philadelphia and makes sure to say he knows Maui has helped Aiden through many visits to the doctor and hospital stays and treatments. Here the the full message from Johnson’s Instagram:

I found out that lil’ Aiden LOVES, my character “Maui” from MOANA, and Maui has gotten him thru many treatments, clinic sessions and hospital visits. These are tough times we’re in, but this boy’s struggles and fight has a way of putting things into perspective for all of us. Sending so much love and strength to Aiden’s mommy and daddy, Dan and Natalie Snyder in Philadelphia. Stay strong, Aiden and remember… you’re way more powerful and awesome than I will ever be. Love, Maui ❤️💪🏾
At the end of the video Johnson says to Aiden, “I want to tell you, most importantly, stay strong and you are inspiring everyone around you, including me. Now I’m your biggest fan. Probably literally your biggest — as in size — your fan.” He goes on to tell Aiden, “you’re way more powerful and awesome than I will ever be.”
Yes, Aiden, you are and in the midst of the current worldwide health crisis we thank Dwayne Johnson for recognizing the struggle of this three-year old and his family. And I’m sure he would say…”You’re Welcome!”
