The creative world of music demands a lot from people as it requires a different kind of talent. Very few people can make their mark in the field of music because of the sheer amount of talent that people have. Miles Bonham, a 7-year-old musical prodigy who is very active on Instagram, recently shared a video highlighting the creative process behind his music and it is truly mind-boggling. The video has broken the internet with an impressive 8.4 million views on the social media site.

Bonham knows how to play many instruments and is also adept at music editing. At the start of the video, we see Bonham strumming his guitar, setting up a kind of foundation for the track he was about to create. The video cuts and we see him sitting at the computer, saying, "Get a new audio track." We then see the young musical genius holding the mic close to a drum-like instrument to create a basic beat. He also adds the sound of a shaking instrument to his recording.

The boy takes all of the sounds to the computer, where he adds a "noise gate" and also cuts out certain sounds because they are "unwanted frequencies." Once he is done with this, he sings into a mic, making a few singing sounds that would go into the track he was creating. All of this is put into the computer, which Bonham transposes 12 semitones down to get the tune he was looking for. The basic track is made and viewers get to see Bonham sitting in a chair away from the computer, basking in the glory of his musical creation.

Bonham plays the drums and guitar for some time before he decides to take a break. He plays around with a few model trains and cars to relax before he jumps back into work. He strums his guitar to the tune he just made and remarks, "It only goes to G and I want it to go to G flat." Bonham shares that he was going to use "automation" on his music to make it better.

He proceeds to add an electronic drum kit and a couple of other nifty features on his computer before he begins singing into the mic. Bonham seems to be singing the lyrics to a song of heartbreak. He utilized autotune to make his vocals match the track he was recording. Viewers get to see the final track towards the end and it is revealed that all of the music heard throughout the video was fully done by Bonham. People were in awe of the boy's musical talent and wrote their thoughts in the comments section.

@leenaaa.21 said, "Talent isn't even the word. This is a blessing God gave him! I can't wait to see his growth!" @highqualityeverything shared, "Still the most amazing thing I've ever come across on this app." Another individual, @followthelita, commented, "Damn, just when I thought I was doing something with my life! You're awesome, Miles!!" @svileery12 expressed, "You are amazing!!! You have brought tears to my eyes. God has so much planned for you."
