A 2-year-old girl is winning hearts across the internet with her passionate rendition of the alphabet song.

A video of Violet Ogea's singing has been viewed more than 3 million times since her mother, Christina Ogea, posted it on Thursday.

Even Broadway star and ABC's Modern Family actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson shared the video on his Facebook page, comparing her to the late Broadway great, Elaine Stritch. 

Violet attends preschool in Shreveport, Louisiana where she enjoys performing for her mom and brothers in the school's theater. 

"She really digs the acoustics in there. But she learns the songs at night when I rock her to sleep. She would start singing them back to me so I decided to start singing the alphabet to her so she could learn them. We are always playing music in our house, dancing with the kids and she just loves to sing for us all. And this is just the way she likes to sing,” Christina Ogea told CNN.
