Baby Beatles Mania

17 Mar

My buddy Hero is at it again. His rendition of “Hey Jude” was shown on Australia’s MSN channel a couple weeks back. He also has the distinct honor of starring in the #1 Most Viewed Video in the Netherlands on YouTube for the month. M’lady and I were given VIP seats for his KBS performance with Imagine… The Beatles and ABBAgirls, neither of which I have much to say about. Hero was great though and is really coming into his own as a performer.

Those white guys towards the end came from the BBC. You also get a glimpse of Hero’s mom perming his hair ㅋㅋㅋ.
Here’s his full performance!
It’s pretty safe to skip the first three minutes if you’re pressed for time.
You can see me on stage giving him flowers towards the end. They almost made him fall over.
There was another super talented kid, about 8 to 10 years old, who performed a couple Beatles songs unaccompanied and fully arranged for solo acoustic guitar. He was amazing.

In other news, Hero’s been coming over to Clair’s bi-weekly and we’re working on some original material!

Yesterday I introduced him to the music of Bruce Springsteen, who was my favorite artist when I was three. He was a big fan of “I’m Going Down”, and this picture of ‘The Boss’ in a convertible. Most of the lyrics he’s come up with have been related to cars and their various types and parts.
