Joey Feek’s Daughter Just Heard Her Mama’s Voice & Her Reaction Melted My Heart!!

“This is what you get when you put headphones on a baby and she hears her mama singing Jesus Loves Me.”Joey Feek has continued to bring light into this world even months after her death…

The 40-year-old country singer passed away in March after a long battle with cervical cancer, but her husband, Rory, and daughter, Indiana, continue to tell her brave story.
Days after Rory spent his first Father’s Day without his wife, he posted an adorable picture of Indy spending some quality time with mama that left her grinning ear to ear.
“This is what you get when you put headphones on a baby and she hears her mama singing Jesus Loves Me,” wrote Rory.

Because of Joey’s strength and selfless acts in her final days, her precious little Indy has thankfully had a smoother time transitioning after her death than anyone would have expected.
In fact, in a post he wrote shortly after Joey’s death, Rory shared that “Indy has not asked for her mama. Not one single time since Joey’s been gone.”

“It’s almost as if she hasn’t noticed that she’s not here,” he added. “And that is so sad…and oh, so wonderful—all at the same time.” As Rory detailed his dying bride’s selfless acts in her final months, it becomes ever so clear why Indy didn’t need to ask for her mom after she died. It’s packed so fully of sacrificial, unconditional love, you simply can’t read these words about Joey without seeing straight into the heart of Jesus.

He wrote:
She loved her mama so much and all she wanted was to be with her, beside her or insight of her. But in early November, when Joey started to realize that there was a good chance that she might not beat her battle with cancer, she made a decision…” he must become greater and I must become less.”

And she started going against everything in her being that told her “time was short” so hold her baby even tighter… and longer… and more… and instead – she handed the baby to me, and sat Alona bed and watched and listened as my relationship with Indy grew…and hers lessoned.

I still remember the day a few weeks later when I was sitting on the couch near Joey’s bed and Indy was playing on the floor at my feet and Joey looked over at me and said, “she needs you now…”. I looked at Joey and saw the look on her face and knew what she meant, and I wanted to cry. But she just smiled and said, “…it’s best this way honey.”
Who does that? Who has that kind of strength and character? Not me, that’s for sure. I would’ve taken the low, easy road… the one that served me more.

I would’ve tried to make the ties with our baby stronger and her love for me deeper so that she wouldn’t forget me… and in the end, probably left our baby wrecked with grief over the loss of the one person she loved and needed most. But not Joey. She let Indy fall more in love with me…and less in love with her. She carried the pain on her own shoulders, to try to keep it off of mine. And even more so, off of Indy’s. Don’t get me wrong, there were still lots of times in those last few months that I put Indy in her mama’s lap and they spent time together, loving and enjoying each other.

But it was never the same. Indiana loved her mama… but she wanted me. She needed me.
Thank you Joey.A few weeks before Indy was born, Rory started filming a documentary in honor of his sweetheart entitled To Joey, With Love. It is scheduled to air for one night only (September 20) in select theaters in remembrance of what would have been Joey’s 41st birthday

Watch the trailer for the full-length documentary below that portrays Joey’s beautiful life, her resilient fight and the joy she brought to all those she encountered amidst her own pain. This is truly breathtaking…
