3-year-old drummer is online smash
Three-year-old Howard Wong has become the latest online music sensation.
Reality TV shows may have opened up the world of entertainment to huge, undiscovered sections of the world's population, but they've got nothing on YouTube. Barely a week goes by without a new star emerging from nowhere to become an overnight online sensation.
Last week, it was 12-year-old Oklahoman piano protégé Greyson Chance who won the hearts of the world, serenading his fellow school children with a compelling version of Lady Gaga's ‘Paparazzi' one day and speaking to the pop superstar herself on national TV the next.
But it looks as though even he could be surpassed this week. Because the latest candidate for international adoration is Howard Wong, aged three. Yes, Howard is barely out of nappies, let alone in short trousers. But that hasn't stopped him causing a global stampede to check out his drumming skills, reportedly filmed in Penang, Malaysia.
Almost 3,750,000 people have watched him gleefully powerhouse his way through the Joan Jett classic ‘I Hate Myself For Loving You' in a Santa hat, as a roomful of people look on open-mouthed. Little else is known about Howard, although there is other footage of him playing in a band and, most amazingly, singing The Beatles' ‘Hey Jude'. Macca had better watch his back!
