What makes Avett a child wonder, despite the fact that he’s only seven? Well, Avett’s gift in music is one-of-a-kind because he has been blind since birth. With significant visual impairment, the young boy walks with a cane and reads braille.

Music is unbelievably in his veins, as he can play a variety of instruments including the piano, guitar, ukulele, and even drums. In an interview, Avett’s mom, Sara Moore, said the child prodigy has shown his interest in performing and playing music when he was only 11 months old.

Aside from his famous cover of Bohemian Rhapsody, Avett has also covered songs made popular by Adele, The Beatles, and Alicia Keys, to name a few.
