The 11-year-old from Ohio blew his friends and family away with his rendition of the hit, and now a video of his performance has gone viral after being posted on Facebook.


The video was shared by Tryzdin's proud mother Lisa, and it has since clocked up over 25 million views on the social networking site, with many viewers suggesting that his version was even better than the original.

The video has already been viewed over 25 million times

The schoolboy is not taking his new found fame for granted, and has admitted to being shocked by the reception he has received for his talent.

"Wow! I can't believe my video has been viewed over 24 million times," he wrote on Monday. "Thank you for sharing and for all your support… stay tuned for more exciting things to come!"

Meanwhile his mum Lisa has revealed that her son more than deserves his big break after a difficult start in life. Writing online, she revealed: "Tryzdin is 11-years-old and born prematurely, he was not expected to make it home from the hospital due to complications including premature lungs.

"He fought through adversity and just wants to make people happy with his gift. His top priority once he 'makes it big' is to take care of the homeless and children in foster care. His heart is as big as his voice and should be shared."
