Music is truly the international language

Tourist asks street band if he could join. Seconds later, it’s simply DIVINE

When musicians who otherwise wouldn’t be able to communicate get together, they find common ground and create art. That’s what happened on the streets of Florence, Italy, in this video posted by DaJeong Kim in October 2015. Korean tourist Jun-Hyuk Choi, a contrabass player at Chungye University for the Arts in Seoul, asks if he could join Romdraculas for a few moments of jamming. When they agree and decide to play the jazz standard “Autumn Leaves,” it’s aural magic.

Choi may not have known it at the time, but Romdraculas is a very popular “gypsy” street band in Florence. Googling their name brings up countless blogs, dating back to at least 2009, written by tourists who have enjoyed their music and purchased their CDs, including the popular “Firenze” (the Italian name for Florence).

If you look closely, you can see that the upright bass Choi borrows has only three strings, one fewer than is usually there. Nevertheless, the musician plays on, simply making the conversions needed to hit the notes despite the missing string — even through two amazing cadenzas, solo sections for the musician to exhibit good technique.

It’s hard to imagine the world has problems when witnessing strangers connect like this; expressing mutual admiration and respect while sharing a passion and creating art, inspiring smiles from everyone around them … and, through video, around the world.

6-Year-Old Tells Judges He Knows All About Girls 

They’re Stunned When He Tells Them THIS
As the saying goes, “kids say the darnedest things.” They are incredibly sweet and innocent, and as a result, they love to speak their mind. This couldn’t be more true for a 6-year-old named Nathan Bockstahler.

Recently, Nathan appeared on America’s Got Talent and delivered a hysterical stand-up comedy performance. While cute and full of charm, this 6-year-old shows a mastery of the stage that someone 6 times his age would have. He doesn’t come off as nervous or show any signs of stage fright. Instead, this 6-year-old is poised and in full control.

He interacts with the judges like an adult, and it’s clear this little boy means business.

As for his act, well, let’s just say that he is absolutely hilarious. This 6-year-old has an incredible sense of humor!

Apparently, the judges were impressed. Mel B. said, “I don’t know how to stop laughing. Do you realize how funny you are?”

“You are funny. I like you, and I think you’ve got a real character,” Simon said.

Heidi, on the other hand, stated, “You are charming, funny, and adorable and I love that you come up with your own material and that’s fantastic!”

When asked what he would do with the $1 million prize, Nathan asked if he could have 1 million Lego pieces instead. I guess he’s still a 6-year-old at heart!

Nathan’s act is definitely worth seeing. Prepare to be mind blown by his wit in the video below.

Grace Is 12. Simon Thinks She May Just Have Given Best AGT Performance EVER

Every year, thousands of talented individuals around the world flock to America’s Got Talent annual auditions for their chance at fame and one million dollars. The show allows anyone to come forth and show off their various talents. Contestants have just a short 120 seconds to impress the four judges and the crowd.Three out of four judges saying “yes” will get the contestant through to the next round where they will rely on votes from fans to send them to the live show during the finals. More often than not, they fail and are turned away. Some are asked to try again the following year, some are told to give up on their talent altogether.Recently, the show introduced a new button that the judges are allowed to use once per season, called The Golden Buzzer. The button sends the contestant through all the way to the live show, improving their chances at winning one million dollars immensely.As 12-year-old Grace Vanderwaal walked onto the stage, with her ukulele in her small hand, the judges asked her a question. “Do you believe that you could win the show?” Her response: “Miracles can happen, so, possibly.”Grace chose to present an original song to the judges and crowd. As she strummed her ukulele, she sang into the microphone. Almost instantaneously, the crowd began to cheer and a smile lit up her face so big that she had to stop singing momentarily. It was then that her mother’s eyes welled with tears.

As her song came to an end, all four judges stood to their feet, including Simon Cowell, who is known for being extremely difficult to impress. When the cheering died down, Howie Mandel spoke. “This is a show about surprises,” he said. “You mentioned the word miracle. Well, I think you are a walking, living, breathing, beautiful miracle.”

The audience began to cheer once again and Mandel slammed his hand excitedly on top of the coveted Golden Buzzer, sending Grace directly into the live show. Golden confetti dropped from the ceiling and her family rushed to her side, crying tears of joy. Even Mandel joined her on stage and gave her a congratulatory hug.
