Avett Ray Maness has incredible singing and piano-playing talent. What’s even more impressive is the fact that this 7-year-old is also blind.

According to his mom Sara Moore, he is entirely blind in one eye and has limited vision in the other eye. She told CBS News, “He’s significantly visually impaired. He walks with cane and he reads Braille.”

Despite his vision struggles, Avett is a piano prodigy. He also plays the drums, guitar, and ukulele, according to “Good Morning America” — and he loves to perform.

“Music is in his body,” Moore told CBS News. “The moment he could pull himself to reach the piano, he was playing the melody to ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.'”

Since then, he’s expanded his abilities to play songs by Adele and more on the piano, and he’s won the heart of music lovers online in the process.

His latest viral video, which has received over 3 million views on YouTube, is an incredible cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”:

It’s the bowing at the end that really makes the performance!

Online viewers are impressed by Avett’s piano-playing skills. Twitter user @gbrodermann called him “so inspiring” after hearing the “Bohemian Rhapsody” cover:

He’s even got complete strangers, such as Twitter user @michxelgonz, saying how “proud” they are of him:

He’s even captured the attention of celebrities online. Actress Debra Messing tweeted calling Avett “just magical”:

It’s safe to say that he’s got plenty of fans, and it’s no wonder because he certainly is talented. He also demonstrates how. people with physical disabilities can accomplish amazing things

“When Avett was 2 months old and they told me he was blind … I could not make it home because I was crying,” Moore told “Good Morning America.” “Something that I thought was so tragic turned out to be his greatest and most beautiful gift.”

A “gift” it is, indeed. Bravo, Avett, bravo! We can’t wait to see how his talent progresses in the future.
