“Is this the real life?

Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see”

It is one thing to play this difficult song, but it’s an entirely different feat to sing along too. I know that it takes so much time and practice in order to perfect these numbers but Avett shows no signs of difficulty.

Note after note, he continues to sing while he flawlessly hitting the keys on the piano. One look at the judge’s faces and you can see that they are impressed by this young talent too.

This entire performance was played in front of a live audience. That’s an incredible feat for a 7-year-old boy, but Avett didn’t look nervous at all. Avett is blind and visually impaired and he doesn’t let any of that slow him down.
