If your week needs a little more faith in humanity, this video certainly will help. It comes courtesy of Cincinnati-based Wonders on Wheels, which is a dance group that features wheelchair-bound "ballerinas" assisted by "shadow" dancers that help them gracefully move through their choreography.

In this video taken Cincinnati-area Seton High School, the dancers perform to Celine Dion's "Titanic" mega-hit "My Heart Will Go On," making the performance all the more poignant since both her husband and brother passed away last week. It has since received more than 6 million views on Facebook.

So honored to know and have witnessed these beautiful girls and proud for what they did today! This is absolutely crazy that this video has been getting the recognition it's been getting. I felt the need to add some information about this since I've gotten a few messages asking. This is Revere Dance Studio in Cincinnati. This is the Wonders on Wheels team where dancers range from 6-27. The choreographer is Tracey, who is also the owner of the studio. This song was chosen because a former dancer passed away recently and she loved Celine DIon so they danced this in her honor. I'm so thrilled that so many people have seen this and are receiving it so well. The girls have worked so hard and I am so proud of them.
