Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has yet again proved why he's been called one of Hollywood's most popular action stars.

The 47-year-old actor gave a sweet shout-out by sharing a video of himself on Instagram on Monday, in which he sang "You’re Welcome" from Moana to a 3-year-old boy suffering from Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

"This message is for a little boy out there, he’s 3 years old, and this little boy is one of the coolest little boys around, and he’s certainly one of the strongest because he is a fighter," The Rock said in the video. "Right now, this little boy is in the fight of his life."

He further added, "His name is Hyrum Harris. Hello Hyrum, I hope this message gets to you. You don’t know me, my name is Dwayne Johnson, I also go by The Rock and you’re probably thinking, ‘Of course you by the name of The Rock because you have a head the size of a rock!'"

"Hyrum, I know! It’s a thing, but it’s not really important right now. What is important is that I heard you love a movie called Moana, which is crazy because I love that movie too," Johnson said. "I also heard you watch Moana almost 10xs a day because the character you love, Maui, gives you strength."

The actor, who voiced Maui in the 2016 film, then sang a few lines from Moana?'s "You're Welcome," adding, "I know you’re like, ‘Dude, leave the cool singing to Maui.’ You’re absolutely right, Hyrum. I wanted to tell you, man, stay strong. There’s another dude out there, me, Dwayne, who, like you, loves Maui too. There’s no one like Maui. He’s the coolest thing. I’m a big fan of Maui, too, and I’m a big fan of yours. Thanks for inspiring everyone around you, including myself. Stay strong, Hyrum."

The actor also shared an update, after Hyrum watched the video. "You’re absolutely right – joy and hope cost nothing and yet, is the most powerful gift we can give. That's the real magic to life. #hopeforhyrum," he wrote.
