Because I was wowed by the Cute Asian Ukulele Boy who did an awesome cover of Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours," I decided to do a bit of Internet research to learn more about him. After some digging, I found out that he's five years old and he's Japanese.
On his YouTube page, his parent (I presume) wrote:
He and I started playing ukulele only one year ago.
We first learned the uke by watching a TV program (NHK).
The program lasted three months.
Well, guess what? That kid is more than a one-trick pony! Check him out doing an adorable cover of The Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da"...in a tie! Watch:
If that doesn't clobber you over the head with a sock full of cute, then see him jamming hard to "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." Watch:
Both songs, of course, are from The Beatles' White Album, which indicates someone in that family has respectable musical tastes. And if you missed the aforementioned cover of "I'm Yours," you can check it out here.

All of this boy's videos were posted seven years ago, and there has been no new content since then. Does anyone know what happened to him?
