Don't feel bad. I'm going to convince myself that it's all staged like "lip sync". Remember Milli Vanilli?

Ah, a true child prodigy!!! After watching all 3 I'd say she might have more of a future with the violin, but she's got talent in capitol letters!!! :bravo:

Her Mozart connected with me big time! She negotiated those complex passages musically and effortlessly. Agree with Mick - huge future with the violin (if she wants it).

Most of the time I am convinced there is no hope for our species. This is not one of those times. She is marvelous.

Good for her! I'd love to have her in my house!
nothing to do with fairness, it is all about all the stars in the correct alignment, the right birth place, the right family, the right circumstances, teachers and the personality and drive to thrive and take advantage of the opportunities. The result = a young Catalina for us to enjoy listening to.

just remember Michael (as someone once said to me), no matter what you do or how well you do it, somewhere there is a fetus on youtube who can do it better...

more seriously, she really is something special.

The interesting thing is that many of these young kids don't even want to do what they are so good at. Just like the young girl little league pitcher last year. She was a sensation at baseball but she really wanted to play basketball...funny world.

i dont really get why people are discouraged by child prodigies, if a young child can play well then a fully grown person can do it too.

That "El Choclo" is beginner stuff compared to this kid's " La Cumparsita" at a very young age. In the second video he's a few years older. A totally natural musician.
