Quickley made crowd sing “Happy Birthday” to his mother before announcing his commitment



How good of a kid is Immanuel Quickley? Before announcing his commitment to Kentucky, he made the crowd at John Carroll School sing “Happy Birthday” to his mother, Nitrease.

“Alright, I’m not exactly a singer, but it is my mom’s birthday,” Immanuel said. “I’ll lead them, but I’m going to sing it.”

You can see the crowd sing to Immanuel’s mother starting around the 4:00 mark:
