FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) -

In a zany video quickly going viral, a principal belts out a heartfelt ballad to announce a snow day.

Chad Caddell, principal of Union Pointe Academy in Florence, covers the classic Mariah Carey diva tune "Hero."

"There's a message if you look inside your phone. You don't have to be afraid of what it says," he warbles, draped in a brown fur hunting hat and coat.

"Icy streets and roads shut the city down, so I'm reaching out to you and gotta say that school is canceled for today.

"Go back to bed and go out and play. Tests and homework not a trace. Parents don't punch me in the face."

Caddell, a first-year principal at the northern Kentucky school, said he wanted to sing a song most people would recognize, and Carey's ballad did the trick.
