Luke Tillman, a student at Cook Elementary, went viral with a video of him baptizing his Paw Patrol toys in the bathtub. The cute innocence captured viewers' hearts and instantly went viral on social media, racking up views and shares immediately.  The sweet moment also caught the attention of superstar talk show host Jennifer Hudson so much so that the young "preacher" was invited to be a guest on The Jennifer Hudson Show.

Luke, the son of Pastor Ezra Tillman and Lady Catrina Tillman of First Trinity Missionary Baptist Church in Flint, appeared on Hudson's NBC talk show this week, and let's just say, showed the world he is one very special young man. Luke told Hudson he wants to follow in his father's footsteps preaching the World of God.

“I want to be just like him when I grow up!” said Luke  about his dad. “I want to be a pastor and a Christian.”

Showing his devotion at such a young age, Luke broke into song with Jennifer Hudson herself joining in. Singing “Take Me to the Water" as if he was leading Sunday service, Luke was joined by the Grammy and Tony Award singer as well as his proud parents and the mesmerized audience.

Hudson then surprised the youngster with a gift basket filled with, what else, Paw Patrol toys. Luke hasn't said yet if his new toys will be baptized as well.

Check out Luke's special appearance on The Jennifer Hudson Show below. You can also hear more from the young preacher by following his new Instagram page @according_2luke.
