Talented 6-Year-Old Boy with Autism Becomes Viral YouTube Sensation (Video)Meghan Gesswein
Another talented child has set the internet abuzz by making a sensation on YouTube. This time, the the focus is 6 year-old Ethan W. and his version of Billy Joel’s “The Piano Man.” People are taking notice of Ethan not only because he’s a talented musician, but also because he’s autistic.
As I was watching the video earlier today, I noticed that there are many other videos of Ethan online, all of which showcase his musical talents…and his awesome taste in music.
I don’t know what exactly set fire to his Piano Man rendition, but I have to say I was equally impressed by his other performances as well. I spent some time looking at his YouTube account, and I had a hard time picking a favorite. While his Piano Man performance has stolen the spotlight, I think there are a few more that shouldn’t be missed, like Maybe I’m Amazed, which you can see below.
You can see the rest of Ethan’s performances on his YouTube channel here.
