Some songs are so great that every generation knows them (and will most likely continue to do so). Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” is one of them.
That’s why 6-year-old Avett Ray is so impressive! While most little ones are off singing Disney songs or playing games, Avett, who is visually impaired, spends his time perfecting difficult piano pieces.
This isn’t the first time the self-taught musician has stunned us with his talent. He actually has his own YouTube channel with 110,000 followers. On it, you can find videos of him performing hits like Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” Adele’s “I Miss You,” and The Avett Brothers’ “I And Love And You.”
But in our humble opinion, Avett’s most impressive video by far is his cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Not only does he play the complicated song, but he also sings every word — on key! How a 6-year-old can have this kind of range, we’ll never know.
Watching him perform is an absolute gift because his small hands move almost magically across the keyboard. While he does make a few mistakes here and there (remember, he is 6), he immediately corrects himself. Clearly, he has an ear for perfect pitch!
Since the video went up, it has received more than seven million views. People across the world love Avett for his spirit, determination, and undeniable skill! After all, the piece is challenging for adults!
We have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ll see of Avett. With so many years ahead of him to refine his musical prowess, he may just become the next Elton John!
