Everyone’s favourite Kid President is gifting you a special song for Valentine’s Day, featuring YouTube stars Lennon and Maisy, who are now on the ABC show Nashville. “If all your hair fell out and you were bald. If your right thumb got bit off by a large vicious dog. Oh I would still love you,” they sing. Wise words kid.
While watching these videos, I felt my self-esteem slowly deteriorate into nothingness. I’ll be turning 20 soon, and there are many things that these kids can do that I can’t even dream of. Here are just 10 of the many crazy-talented kids out there.
1. Nolan Gould
You probably recognize Nolan from the television show, “Modern Family.” But after watching this video, I learned that the 14-year-old has already graduated high school and is studying at a college level. Um, when I was 14 I was bopping around my bedroom to various selections of “emo” music.
2. Lennon and Maisy
These young sisters have graced the youtube world with their lovely voices, earning millions of hits. Lennon, 12, and Maisy, 8 have won the hearts of the interwebz with their beautiful covers of songs like “Headlock” by Imogen Heap. The duo will be featured tonight in an episode of Nashville — their pretty voices included!
3. Matty B
This nine-year-old recorded a cover of “Ice Ice Baby” with the legend himself, Vanilla Ice. If that isn’t enough to describe how awesome this kid is, then I don’t know what else is. Matty B is a young rapper from Georgia, who has gotten attention from some pretty big names (Dr. Phil, anyone?) He’s also covered One Direction. Enough said.
Since covering Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend” back in May, Lennon and Maisy Stella have gained a lot of attention from notables like Michael Kors. The designer even invited the ladies to Kors Karaoke, which is part of FNO, fashion’s biggest party of the year.
The sisters couldn’t make it so they covered Corey Hart’s “Sunglasses at Night” to thank him for the invitation. I love their acoustic version because they tame the unabashedly “1984″ track with their beautiful voices. Michael Kors was so impressed he added the video to his YouTube channel.
