YUKI INU : there is still hope for humanity, with people like this.

seeingthings : For some reason or other, I haven't cried in twenty years or more. A minute or so into this and for the first time in my life, two tears came falling down my face at the same time. Thank you for being so kind to that elephant. You must be a rare and wonderful human.

John Smith : I bet that elephant will be Bach for more

robertrstevens : * My faith in humanity is restored by this.  Many thanks, Paul Barton.

T RopE : classical music evokes so much emotion into my soul, I love it so much, I listen to it while working, while my co workers listen to heavy metal n rap. they judge me for it, yet I am so blissfull n full of love all day, I hope this magnificent beast feels the same

Mark Weaver : Native Africans say "the elephant is the only animal in the jungle with a soul ".

Two-Dog James : What a wonderful and considerate thing to do for this beautiful animal, who clearly loves having this new experience.

Raymond Berry : Long ago, a swan parted from a floating flock of around 20 swans, as they waited, as it crossed over a wide, local river. I was playing box guitar by the water, on a dock. It came within 5 feet of the dock, and sashayed as I sang and played. It was there for about 45 minutes. When I was done playing, it crossed back over the river to the flock, and only then did they all move on. Since then, I've learned that some animals mate for life - could the music been a consolation for a lost mate? I'll never know. This moment only happened when I was alone, and could never be proven to another soul. Truly, this was meant for my eyes - and more importantly, my heart, only. Sometimes the greatest miracles are right before our eyes, and at our feet. I shall forever remember the moment. Be kind to all living things. 😉👍

Michael Cala : This is one of the most beautiful things I've seen.  It made my heart feel good!

Kartik Luthra : I am From India and you are real kind and great person

Joan Berka : So moving to watch how still they stand or the swaying they do. Just beautiful.

lulnug : Imagine in 30,000 years people will see footage like this and think how incredible that humans once walked alongside creatures as beautiful as this. Hopefully the human race can stop exploiting the planet and cherish the animal kingdom.

Sandra Thorne : Animal to animal what a caring sad that humans can't be kind to each other, more often.

Helen Keller Channel : Hi Paul. Thanks for sharing the touching video, my friend. It's nice to see another one of your charming videos on youtube. Hope things are going well for you. Please accept my best wishes! :)

Richard Venneman : One of the most touching moments this 70 year old has ever experienced. Thank you.

RSxxx1300 : I wonder how the elephant would react if it found out the keys are ivory

A 2 : I have a humming bird that loves my guitar... she always sits on the head stock to listen... either that or she wants me to fill up the hummingbird feeder

YoBro : I feed a bluejay and one cardinal peanuts while I play guitar and sing. Once (and only once) after the peanuts, they perched on a nearby tree about 3 feet apart and listened to about 4 or 5 songs, facing me without moving, then flew away at the same time. Maybe they didn't like that last one.

HeadShotSongs : I'm not so easily amazed, but this time I was. Wonderful.

Howard King : Beautiful! Who would have thought that an elephant would respond to music in this way? Thanks for the posting.

Elton Chung : Thank you! Its giving me such warmth and peace

We now ask You to grant our special animal companions your Fatherly care and healing power to take away any suffering they have. Give us, their human friends, new understanding of our responsibilities to these creatures of Yours. They have trust in us as we have in You; our souls and theirs are on this earth together to give one another friendship, affection, and caring. Take our heartfelt prayers and fill Your ill or suffering animals with healing Light and strength to overcome whatever weakness of body they have. Amen
