VIDEO: Kilkenny man sings Christmas song with his son and it'll melt your heart

Robert Grace sings his festive tune 'Christmas Time for Me' alongside his son, Lincoln...

Robert Grace is a singer/songwriter from Kilkenny and he has posted this adorable video on his Facebook page of him and his son performing his song, 'Christmas Time for Me'.

The video has already garnered over 10,000 views and it's easy to see why with his son, Lincoln, dressed up in a Festive red jumpsuit and the obligatory Christmas tree in the background.

Lincoln is no stranger to the camera and has been featuring in his father's videos from the tender age of six weeks' old.

Robert said: "I made a video with Lincoln when he was only 6 weeks old and it got a great response. Everyone loved it! He's six months now and this will be his first Christmas so I wanted to mark the occasion with another video. Something for him to look back on when he's older."

He added: "I wrote the Christmas song in a couple of hours, recorded it in my home studio and then we got the video done in about 10 minutes! He's such a good kid and his Mam and myself love him to pieces. I just want this video/song to bring some smiles and start getting people excited for Christmas!"

Hailing from Graignamanagh, Robert released his debut EP 'Talk To Me' on May 12 of last year. 

Robert grew up in a house immersed by traditional Irish music as his father plays in well know local trad band 'Keltic Cats'.

Before long Robert was learning the guitar and wrote his first song aged 12.
