Watch: Utah family's video of 'One Day More' goes viral
(KUTV) -- The LeBaron family of Fruit Heights, Utah, could be the newest singing sensation from a Facebook post that has gone viral.
Jayson LeBaron said his family gathered together to celebrate Easter and fulfilled a request by his mom to sing, "One Day More," from the musical "Les Miserables," which is based on a French historical novel by Victor Hugo, first published in 1862.
The video post has received more than 2,800 shares and more than 262,000 views of the five siblings and their spouses each taking a role of one of the stage show characters.
Jayson portrayed Jean Valjean, a prisoner who is freed by Javert, an officer in charge of prison workforce.
Valjean violates his parole and uses money from stolen silver to become a factory owner. Javert vows to bring Valjean back to prison. Landon LeBaron, the youngest of the siblings, sings the part of Javert.
Other characters from the Broadway musical are performed by Jordan LeBaron, Angela Garrett LeBaron, Karina LeBaron, Juston LeBaron, Heidi LeBaron Garn, Gerald J. LeBaron, Spencer Garn, and Kaitlyn Hipwell.
"We've all grown up singing together and we all married musically talented people," said Jayson LeBaron to 2News. "My dad plays the piano and has been our accompanist growing up and my mom has been our music director. We all got involved with musical theater and did a lot of shows in high school and college. Music has been a unifying thing in our family, though we are all over Utah now from Kaysville to Salt Lake to St. George; we come together in the good times and during the trials with music keeping us real, and keeping us together, and keeping us happy."
The LeBaron family said they are surprised with the overwhelming reaction their video has received on Facebook.
"Jordan posted it on Facebook and then it went crazy," Jayson said.
