Yuto Miyazawa

Another international superstar in the making...

A little shorter than Danyl Johnson (the star of my previous post), but just as cute!

"It is a summer vacation to remember for Yuto, the Guinness Book of World Record’s youngest professional guitarist. The (Japanese) fourth grader has been performing in the United States and appearing on TV shows since gaining an online following for his rock videos. His rendition of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘‘Freebird’’ was viewed over 1.5 million times on YouTube and mentioned on message boards and blogs as he became the latest meme in an era of instant Internet celebrities.

The interest attracted the attention of U.S. media and promoters. Yuto has spent his summer learning about America by touring the country playing classic American rocks songs and sharing the stage with some of rock music’s biggest legends.

‘‘My friends are like, ‘Oh really?’ They think I’m just boasting,’’ Yuto said in an interview with Kyodo News."


  1. That kid is super cute! I loved how the audience of Ellen laughed when he said his dad played badly, even though it wasn't translated for them.
    I also like how he kind of just stands here and doesn't look like he is even particularly concentrating whilst he does that last amazing solo. Future tensai in the making.
