Toddler Performing The Beatles' Song Hey Jude On YouTube.Com

The Cutest MasterClass Video Of The Day: Hey Jude Interpreted by A Toddler

I have to credit one of my readers, Anita, for making me aware of this adorable and very musical performance of The Beatles‘ song, “Hey Jude”.

This video has already received a ton of exposure – 26,508,531 views is nothing to sneeze at!

I know this adorable child will be featured on Ellen. She loves discovering and surrounding herself with talented young children of all ages.

I loved the rhythmic intensity he displayed in between his phrases. And his voice is pitch perfect -presently lacking in technique – but, hopefully, that will come later.

What a sweet, precious and extraordinary performance.

Hey Kid – whomever you are – you rock!

  1. Wow!! That little guy is AMAZING. I’m sure we’re going to be hearing more from him. I agree, he kept the pitch beautifully.


  2. Rosanne,

    Was there another Anita who told you about this little boy, because I know it wasn’t me, or did you get confused. Anyway, this video is precious. He’s a star in the making!


  3. Absolutely AMAZING and ADORABLE! Loved it!


  4. Yes – there was Anita. On Facebook. I always thought it was you. Lolol


  5. Now that I look at this video again, I think this is actually a little girl. Boy, I guess I was confused! lol


    That’s sweet you always thought it was me on Facebook. I’ve never been on Facebook with anyone before. My friends have encouraged me to, but my brother, the computer genius says I shouldn’t because Facebook is a breeding ground for viruses.


  6. Hi, Anita!

    You were the right first time. 😛 He’s a boy. His name is Ha YoungWoong, and he’s from South Korea.

    Here’s one article (but there are many!). 😀

    I must’ve zoned out during the first three seconds the first time I watched this video! On second viewing, I immediately noticed that he says “hello” and “thank you” in Korean at the start. Too cute!


  7. J,

    Thanks! I guess I wasn’t confused after all. Thanks also for the link. I noticed the video when he was 4 years old was made in 2007. What a great find!!


  8. I know what you mean, Anita. A friend I know in law enforcement told me that Facebook is not good – in fact it is a very serious threat to personal privacy and safety. I never upload pictures anymore and, probably, will be deleting most -if not all – of my photos on my FB page.


  9. Rosanne,

    I’ve also learned how dangerous Facebook can be for people. I’m happy to know you’re deleting you photos. Good for you!! It’s horrible that some people abuse the Internet as a means to harm others.
