Dolly Parton Responds To 2-Year-Old’s Viral Cover Of Jolene

Sophia Kingsley has a voice like no other kid her age. Oh, and she’s got a little bit of sass to boot.

The two-year-old was caught on tape belting out her very own rendition of a classic song that came out well before her time.

“She’s been talking and singing since before she could walk,” Sophia’s mom, 25-year-old Brooke Kingsley, told People.  “It’s incredible, she can hear a song once or twice and recall all of the lyrics.”


Brooke usually records her daughter’s covers and shares them with family and friends, but this time she posted little Sophia’s unexpectedly sweet cover of Dolly Parton’s 1973 country hit “Jolene” on Facebook. It instantly captured millions of hearts.

According to Brooke, Sophia started singing the song after hearing Miley Cyrus’s version on an episode of The Voice.

“She loved it so much that she kept singing it for days,” says Kingsley . “I showed her the original Dolly version, and now she calls her ‘Princess Dolly!’ ”

Well, Sophia’s soulful cover reached “Princess Dolly’s” ears and she was very impressed.
