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.
A lot of kids have dreams of being musicians but unfortunately they just don’t have the talent. Their parents either let them down gently or nod along with a crooked smile on their face to humour them.
These kids on the other hand have pure talent. The two young Irish boys did an acoustic version of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” and it was all captured on a cell phone camera. While one plays the guitar and does a rap verse in the middle, the other shows off his pipes.
For some reason the YouTube comments have taken an inexplicable turn for the worse — commenting on Irish descendants of all things (Are they REALLY Irish?). Let’s focus on what’s important here people: these two kids are mega talented, and we hope to hear more from them.
