Travis and his father worked with a friend with the musical arrangements and added some backup singers, Mirror reported .

Travis surprised her on Christmas Eve with his version of her song “Fishing in the Sky.”

Wikey was speechless, except for a squeal of surprise before crying, overcome with emotion when she realized was her song.  

Travis’ father, Robert, recorded Wilkey’s reaction, which has gone viral with millions of views, with more than 5.9 million coming from one Facebook post.

The song is now available on iTunesAmazon and Spotify.
