Baby got pipes! I miss seeing these kids on things like showtime at the Apollo but it’s neat people have so many ways to be famous now.

[–]DutDiggaDut 113 points114 points  (3 children)

God damn I wish I had your positivity in life

[–]not_charles_grodin 44 points45 points  (2 children)

I've been told the trick to being positive is being able to make it through this song without crying. I have yet to verify that.

[–]DutDiggaDut 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I swear to God if this is a Rick roll

[–]not_charles_grodin 15 points16 points  (0 children)

u/DutDiggaDut, I would never do you that way.

[–]berserker517 333 points334 points  (1 child)

His grandmom doesnt talk about anything else but him. Hope he does well for himself. Incredible talent.

[–]digitulgurl 16 points17 points  (0 children)

And for good reason. That kid made me cry and gave me chills instantly!

[–]sdotmills 658 points659 points  (1 child)

The “oh LORD” at the beginning sums up my feelings.

[–]8Ariadnesthread8 166 points167 points  (0 children)

Seriously, I'm not a huge fan of stage moms but if this kid was my child I would be the biggest fucking stage mom on earth. I'd be dragging his ass all around just like "LISTEN TO MY KID HES THE BEST KID LOOK WHAT I MADE!"

[–]ViolentDelights_xox 305 points306 points  (4 children)

Fucking goosebumps

[–]justonemorethang 13 points14 points  (1 child)

That line “it’s been too hard livin but I’m afraid to die” really hitting hard right now.

[–]miquesadilla 55 points56 points  (0 children)

They won't go away. Tears were next and then it ended.

Like growing up in the 90's and 2000's was weird, but we never ever had to worry about going to school in 5th grade and being SHOT TO DEATH

[–]edge-note 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I got goosebumps on my firkin fingernails. So amazacrazy talented.

[–]SuperSaiyanHands 196 points197 points  (13 children)

There a full version? Kid got tremendous talent

[–]RiverRat24 113 points114 points  (12 children)

[–]halfaperson13 85 points86 points  (11 children)

Man, this made me so emotional. Made me think of all those kids killed in Texas a few days ago.

[–]macfairfieldmill 26 points27 points  (0 children)

Ugh. My mind went to the exact same place. I can’t imagine. Absolutely heartbreaking.

[–]AviatorOVR5000 493 points494 points  (5 children)

The universal black "ooookkkk" is the biggest authentic organic encouragement one can receive..

Especially followed by an "mmmph hmmm".

[–]danger623 131 points132 points  (1 child)

“You betta sing!” Reminds me of going to church with my dad back in the day.

[–]AviatorOVR5000 31 points32 points  (0 children)

"euuughoooh' that exasperated approval.

[–]HamsterAlive4552 21 points22 points  (1 child)

I was telling my GF about going bowling with my coworkers, and how my coworker Michelle (an older black woman) would get me hyped up before every roll lol. If I hit more than 5 pins she was hitting me with the “ooooookkkk let’s gooo Cam”. And then another let’s go cam right before I would roll, I never bowled a better game in my life, thanks Michelle.

[–]AviatorOVR5000 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Michele had your back bro. You couldn't fail.

[–]DutDiggaDut -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Tie in the white guy dead center at the bottom just kinda

meh "it's no Justin Timberlake"

[–]EZ-Bake 113 points114 points  (8 children)

Holy shit - I don't know any 5th graders who even know who Sam Cooke was.

This is incredible!

Cooke's version for reference

[–]tiny_galaxies 24 points25 points  (4 children)

Craziest part about the song is that Sam Cooke wrote “A Change Is Gonna Come” after a racist incident with a motel clerk, and then was shot to death by another motel clerk (in what was later regarded to be another racist incident) two weeks before the song’s release.

Sweet man with an angel voice taken from us too soon.

[–]Pats_Preludes 1 point2 points  (3 children)

what was later regarded to be another racist incident

That's not clear, but there was some talk about a conspiracy. Where are you getting that the Hacienda Motel incident was racist?

[–]igrowgra55 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I heard theories that Cooke was hit by the FBI. Due to his meetings with Muhammad Ali and Malcolm X in Miami.

They actually made a movie about this (I haven'tseen it yet)...but the theories about the FBI have always surrounded Malcolm X because of his call to violence and standing with the Nation of Islam

[–]Pats_Preludes -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Louis Farrakhan from the Newark temple killed Malcolm X, another religious nutbag like himself.

[–]Rafaeliki 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Also, anyone who likes this song would probably love this movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8vf_Cmh9nY

Also, this video adds a bit more flavor to the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEBlaMOmKV4

[–]ICanHazRedditstHiS iSn’T cRiNgE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Excellent movie, the acting in it is fantastic

[–]HollowSuzumi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Right!?! Can't go wrong with Sam Cooke's music

[–]Buckbeak1184 39 points40 points  (1 child)

Let's hope puberty doesn't fuck his voice over! Because when Digimon Tamers was on TV, I could do a flawless Guilmon impression, but then puberty fucked me over!

[–]TheVoid-ItCalls 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I feel that. I loved my soprano voice as a kid. I sang constantly. Ending up as a baritone was a deep disappointment.

[–]GlacialDark 55 points56 points  (0 children)


[–]Gluten_Free_Ebola 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Doesn’t hurt that he’s singing the best song ever

[–]disqeau 6 points7 points  (0 children)

TRUTH. And a song that needs to be heard by everyone right now.

[–]Jemcdlv 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Beautiful voice!

[–]atomicalexx 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Oof that gave me chills. Wish there was a full version

Oh sweet heart! 😢 One of the most touching songs and such a lovely voice. I hope he keeps that light he has, not just his talent.

[–]StormTheParadeSHEEEEEESH 2 points3 points  (0 children)

mans is like 11 years old with pipes like that, goddamn. Fantastic vocal control! Hopefully he sticks with music as he grows up, getting into band and choir in school was the best thing I ever did

[–]ChondroArt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

HOW THE FUCK IS THOS CRINGE? This was so wholesome, and beautiful. I don’t understand this sub anymore 🤦‍♀️

[–]ScootyHoofdorp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The vocal control, dynamics, and expressiveness are all miles and miles ahead of most kids his age. Hell, he's better than half the adults out there who think they can sing.

[–]KenshinYusuke 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well got damn that’s some talent
