When Talia Suskauer got the role of a lifetime, she couldn’t wait to tell one of her biggest supporters: Her beloved voice teacher, Craig.

When she was just 12 years old, Craig recognized Talia’s incredible talent, making sure to teach her everything he knew as she worked to perfect her instrument. That’s why, when she was told she’d be getting the part of Elphaba from “Wicked” on Broadway, she chose to capture the moment when the exciting news was revealed to him!

People around the world have fallen in love with Talia and Craig’s wholesome relationship. So much so, in fact, that Talia’s video has gotten over nine million views! People were so insistent on helping Craig get to NYC for one of her shows that Talia set up a GoFundMe for him. Thanks to the overwhelming amount of donations she received, her voice teacher is all set for his trip! Plus, we got another adorable reaction video out of it!
