Jaxon Smith is a self taught, prodigy, Canadian Drummer. He was born on May of 2005, 3 and a half months pre-maturely but that is not why he is considered a prodigy. Jaxon is a prodigy because by the age of six and without any family musical history and without receiving any drumming lessons, he was brilliant enough to listen to songs, capture the beat in his mind and then play it afterwards, with any spoon, chopstick or drum-stick he could lay his hands on.
Note: This page is about Anna Christine, the 12 years old prodigy singer from Henderson Nevada and not about Anna Christine Speckhart, the 24 years old Model from Illinois, USA.
Anna Christine has been singing since the age of five. Her first live performance was on June 4th of 2013 while auditioning for the 8th season of America Got Talent. She sang “House of the Rising Sun” and demonstrated the beauty, depth and soul of her voice. At the time Anna was only 10 years old and no one could believe that a 10 years old could have such a mature and beautiful voice.
Just like most of the rest of the world, I first heard Avery Winter in her audition for the 6th season of America Got Talent. She wasn’t alone, she was auditioning along-side her two little cute friends Brooklyn Elbert and Kassidy King. Here is the video:
The first video I saw for Krisia is her cover song for “Simply the best” for Tina Turner. It is just amazing how well she has performed the song. I simply can’t believe that a 9 years old could sing this well. Even after watching all her videos, this video is still by far her best in my opinion.
Kirsia Todarova is a Bulgarian child prodigy. She was born in Varna on 1 June 2004.
In this post, I will introduce you to another child prodigy, Malachi Samedy, a very talented young drummer.
Who is Malachi Samedy?
Malachi Samedy is an American musical prodigy of Haitian Descent. He learned how to play drums at an incredibly young age. His parents had noticed his musical interest early on and bought him his first drum-set while he was still 18 months old.
Prodigies! Wunderkinds! who are they?
Our dear old Wikipedia defines a prodigy as:
A child prodigy or Wunderkind is a person who, at an early age, develops one or more skills at a level far beyond the norm for their age
This boring definition isn’t really what intrigues me. Scientific definitions are very informative but far from being interesting. On the other hand, conventional and traditional stories about prodigies and how they come to be are far more interesting. Continue reading Prodigies, are they Reincarnated geniuses?
