Little Boy Sings John Denver Classic Stealing Audience’s Heart With The First Note


If you grew up with a family with Southern roots, then you will fondly remember the popularity of John Denver.

Watch this young man in a 2018 performance from TV pay homage to this legend as he brings back one of his biggest hits, “Take Me Home Country Roads.”

At a then just seven years old, Shaney-Lee knew he had just one chance to impress The Voice Kids UK with his incredible voice. Instead of opting for any current hit, he jumped outside of the box and chose a country classic. He wanted his performance to stand out and grab their attention.

Little Shaney-Lee nervously waited backstage, hugging his family to keep calm, and then it was his turn to shine. And, shine he did. His rendition of John Denver’s classic was amazing. It was almost as if another voice was coming from that little body.

Shaney-Lee, having grown up on a farm, charmed the judges with stories about his home life in the video. He told them about getting up at sunrise taking care of the farm and sometimes working all day to get everything done. But, he loved it and wouldn’t have it any other way.

In the video, this little guy tells us about his animals on the farm. He has horses, 1 sheep, goats, pigs, chickens, ducks, a donkey, and a pony! It’s amazing that he has to time to sing at all! His pony and cart even took him to his audition.
