While most kids are picking their noses and trying to dig holes to China in the backyard, a few special kids are honing their skills as musicians, dancers, and artists. Many of these kids are better at what they do than adults with ten times as much practice and experience! We’ve put together a list of 10 amazing YouTube videos of talented kids that will blow your mind.
8 year old boy does 30 air flares
I was inspired to create this list when I came across a video of an 8-year old break-dancer that does 30 air flares in a row. According to the announcer, this kid’s record is 40 air flares, but 30 is still pretty freakin’ impressive. Could you do this?
Violin Solo by Multi-Talented 4 Years Old Kid
Dhanat Plewtianyingthawee is really a talented kid. As a painter, he had his first solo art exhibition at the age of three and a half years old. You can check out his paintings here. But painting isn’t all Dhanat does. He also plays the violin. Dhanat took his first lesson at the age of three and a half years old. In the first video below he performs at the age of four. Then check out his progress in the following video as he plays at the age of 7.
Incredible 7-Year Old Child Violinist Performs “Csardas”
Think Dhanat was good? Check out Brianna Kahane. Brianna is one of the best child violinists of all time. Click here to check out her performance of “Csardas” at the age of 7, as embedding has been disabled on YouTube. And if you don’t believe that it’s possible that this girl is only 7, check out her interview on the Ellen Show below. She really is just a normal little kid that happens to be extraordinarily talented. All I can say is, “wow”.
Is anyone really surprised that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett gave birth to two incredibly talented kids? Jaden crushed it in The Pursuit of Happyness and The Karate Kid and Willow made a name for herself as Kit Kittredge. But she really showcases her talent in her new hit single, Whip My Hair. Maybe the chorus of the song has something to be desired, but there is no doubt that it’s hard to believe that Willow Smith is only 10 years old when she opens her mouth and starts singing.
And speaking of child singers that sing beyond their years, check out Jackie Evancho. Jackie is a 10-year old opera singer. She has been singing since she was 8-years old and has an absolutely amazing voice. Can you believe this girl is only 10?
The World’s Strongest Boy
Okay, I should prerequisite this video by saying that I’m not exactly sure that this counts as “talent”. It’s actually a little bit sick, if you ask me. But it was too weird and shocking to leave off the list, and it does feature a child that is well beyond his years in the field of bodybuilding. Click here to see a video of the world’s strongest boy, Richard Sandrak, a few years later. He’s still in great shape, but doesn’t look quite so freakish anymore and I think it’s important to note that, according to Wikipedia, Richard says, “I’ve never been forced to train or do anything against my will. My parents used to train all the time and I wanted to join in. It was mostly my choice. It’s just what I grew up doing. I was never forced. It was never an issue.”
Lucciano Pizzichini 7 Year Old Guitar Master
Lucciano Pizzichini is a master guitar player. At only 7 years old her was already playing better than many adult guitar players and he’s only getting better with age. He has even had the chance to perform for Carlos Santana on television.
The Next Mozart? 6-Year Old Piano Prodigy Wows All
Emily Bear says that she’s just a normal kid that plays the piano. She was discovered by her grandmother when she started playing a c-scale at the age of 2 years old. She plays music by other composers and writes her own music as well, and she loves the stuffed bunny that she got at the White House.
Jacob Armen drum solo, seven years old!!
And check out this seven year old, Jacob Armen, as he rocks out with a two and a half minute long drum solo on the Johnny Carson Show! Of course, Jacob Armen is no longer a child, but he started playing the drums at the ripe age of 18 months, cut his first solo album when he was 12, and definitely was a child prodigy.
British child prodigy compared to Picasso
Kieron Williamson has been compared to Picasso. At seven years old he had already sold his paintings for a total of $50,000, and he had only been painting for a year!
