Video of Chris Picco singing ‘Blackbird’ to his dying premature son after his wife died during an emergency C-section made everyone cry last week.

On Sunday he performed another moving tribute at a memorial service for the two.

Picco lost his wife, Ashley, following an emergency C-section, and his son Lennon a few days later.

At the memorial in Loma Linda, California he thanked the world for the outpouring of kindness he received after he posted the “Blackbird” video, according to Mashable.

He then performed ‘This is my father’s world’ set to photos of little Lennon.

A Memorial fund was set up for Picco to pay medical and funeral costs for Ashley and Lennon.
