A heartwarming video of a 5-year-old boy dancing to Michael Jackson song recently went viral on social media. Solomon Hufano, presently undergoing cancer treatment at Seattle Children’s Hospital is seen dancing to the peppy number 'Bad' in the video.

The video was first posted by Solomon's mother Leni Lutui on Twitter after which it started gaining considerable traction as more and more people reacted to the cute moves. Solomon is seen aping Jackson's pelvic thrusts while he tries his best to mouth the lyrics.

Reports stated that Hufano had been diagnosed with desmoplastic small round cell tumor, a kind of cancer prevalent in the abdomen.

Hufano was fond of dancing since the age of three and began listening to Michael Jackson songs. The singer's discography attracted him and soon Solomon started aping the moves of the King of Pop. His favourites included 'Billie Jean', 'Thriller', and 'Beat it', added the report.

Solomon's mother also spoke about his son's spirit saying that when the boy had to stay in the hospital for prolonged periods, Leni's sister would play music videos which Solomon would soon pick up and imitate. His demeanor and enthusiasm often had people wonder how he managed to remain this positive despite the terminal disease.

Solomon is expected to complete his cancer treatment by January. Watch Solomon's video here.
