Wow, thanks for posting Faith. My friend posted a clip of the same boy playing 'I'm Yours' on facebook a few days ago and then I noticed WIUO also posted it recently too. He's so cute and very talented! :D

Wow. Thanks for posting that FunnyS. He could literally make the uke "sing" the melody while accompanying himself. Does that make sense? I'm in awe. Just beautiful. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Oh Laura, you lucky ducky! That should be incredible.
He's not only so talented, but he seems like a very personable guy.

8) :D

It's only $8 admission to the DIA and I haven't been in years. So going a bit early to look around and then see his show sounds like a great time to me! :)
