Received the link from someone who said it was Little Richard.

Richard Wayne Penniman (aka Little Richard) about fifteen years before "Tutti Frutti, Oh, Rudy...."
A-whop bop-a-lu bop a-whop bam boom.

Here is some very rare footage of "Little Richard" as a child, when he was just starting out in the music biz' ... from a movie with Van Johnson ...

I see a resemblance… it could be Little Richard when he was really “Little”. Hey, either way, that is pure talent and plenty of showmanship to boot! laugh

Makes me feel bad when a 10 year old boy can play better than me! smile

Thanks for posting this!!! smile

The singing sounds like Little Richard.


"Imagine it in all its primatic colorings, its counterpart in our souls - our souls that are great pianos whose strings, of honey and of steel, the divisions of the rainbow set twanging, loosing on the air great novels of adventure!" - William Carlos Williams
