Pembroke Pines, Fla. — Jacob Velazquez, the seven-year-old extraordinary kid whom we first wrote about last year, wowed yet another celebrity in the person of world-famous singer Taylor Swift— who couldn’t help but invite him over to one of her shows as she goes on tour.
Jacob, who is a huge fan of Swift, composed and played a piano piece that pretty much summarizes the singer’s 1989 album. A footage of Jacob dedicating the piece to Swift and playing it on the piano has recently been uploaded by Autism Speaks, and was picked up by the famous singer just shortly after.
In a message posted on her official Twitter account, Swift told:
@JacobsPiano I HAVE to give you a hug for that beautiful piano medley you did! Please come to a show on my tour and say hi to me? My treat.
Jacob later on thanked Autism Speaks and made a remark about how excited he was to finally meet his favorite singer, calling it the #BestDayEver.
The young music prodigy first started playing the piano when he was just four years old, and started earning the nicknames “Baby Beethoven” and “Mini Mozart” barely just a year after that— when he made it to the National Musician’s Guild.
Jacob is also no stranger to performing in front of live audiences. He also made guest appearances onCNN, Extraordinary Kids, Good Morning America, and The View.
