This child proves that one doesn't need expensive instruments or equipment to show off their talent. In a video uploaded on Instagram, a little boy can be seen playing drums made with scrap materials and empty vessels. And it sounds amazing! The video was shared by a person called Zijan Tang. The child is so skillful that he is using sticks to play the drums and brings out the best sound possible.
People loved his music and could not stop raving about his talent. A user wrote, "Someone gets me this kid's information. I want to buy him a drum set.

Talking about talent, in another video uploaded on Twitter, a boy can be seen performing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and his voice is just magical. He looks confident and plays his notes on the piano while singing the song. He melted many hearts on the Internet as he performed the song and his energy is contagious.
Not much is known about the child's identity. He is sporting shorts and a T-shirt with headphones and gives a wide smile at the end. The video has been captioned, "Young boy performs a cover of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' on the piano. What a talent!" People could not stop appreciating the child for his skills. A user wrote, "Wow!

You are AMAZING, that was FANTASTIC!!" Another said, "It's his singing that got to me more than his piano playing. Fantastic!"
Some even called him a reincarnation of Freddie Mercury. A user wrote, "Love it! Now it’s time to watch Freddie Mercury." Another said, "Rare footage of a young Freddie Mercury." Queen guitarist Brian remembered the early 70s when they were first given a glimpse of the song by Mercury. May said in 2008, “I remember Freddie coming in with loads of bits of paper from his dad’s work, like Post-it notes, and pounding on the piano." “He played the piano like most people play the drums. And this song he had was full of gaps where he explained that something operatic would happen here and so on. He’d worked out the harmonies in his head,” according to uDiscoverMusic.
He added that Mercury told his bandmates that he had material for three songs but instead, he wanted to make it into one long extravaganza. The song was rehearsed at Ridge Farm Studio in mid-1975 and reportedly they spent three weeks honing the song at Penrhos Court in Herefordshire. On August 24, 1975, they started recording the song at the Rockfield Studios in Monmouth, Wales. May describe that time as "just the biggest thrill."
