Little Boy Sings John Denver Classic Stealing Audience's Heart With The First Note
If you grew up with a family with Southern roots, then you will fondly remember the popularity of John Denver.
Watch this young man in a 2018 performance from TV pay homage to this legend as he brings back one of his biggest hits, "Take Me Home Country Roads."
At a then just seven years old, Shaney-Lee knew he had just one chance to impress The Voice Kids UK with his incredible voice. Instead of opting for any current hit, he jumped outside of the box and chose a country classic. He wanted his performance to stand out and grab their attention.
Little Shaney-Lee nervously waited backstage, hugging his family to keep calm, and then it was his turn to shine. And, shine he did. His rendition of John Denver's classic was amazing. It was almost as if another voice was coming from that little body.
This kid was a total professional. Shining with a calm confidence, he belted out the melody effortlessly, it seemed. His mother, Tamara, describes him as a much older person in a little body. Both Mom and Dad glowed with pride as they waited to see their little boy live out his dream.
Once onstage, he held the microphone to his little seven-your-old lips and the rest is history. This little guy sang "Take Me Home Country Roads" as if he had been singing it for years.
As his mother watched with tears running down her cheeks, Shaney-Lee was wrapped in the moment of amazing the world with his singing ability. The audience was in awe of this little guy's natural ability. The judges loved every minute of it.
Shaney-Lee, having grown up on a farm, charmed the judges with stories about his home life in the video. He told them about getting up at sunrise taking care of the farm and sometimes working all day to get everything done. But, he loved it and wouldn't have it any other way.
In the video, this little guy tells us about his animals on the farm. He has horses, 1 sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, a donkey, and a pony! It's amazing that he has to time to sing at all! His pony and cart even took him to his audition.
