Amazing Teen Sounds Exactly Like Elvis Presley Singing ‘Blue Christmas’
Elvis Presley passed away in 1977, but his music lives on in an amazing video that has gone viral since it was first released online Monday (Dec. 9).
16-year-old David Thibault was recorded performing the Presley Christmas classic at Quebec radio station CKOI, a French language Top 40 station. But there’s no trace of any accent as the talented teen delivers a flawless vocal rendition that sounds hauntingly like the departed King of Rock and Roll.
So much so, in fact, that some online posters have called the veracity of the performance into question — a question that is put to rest when Thibault slips on the guitar, resulting in an audible mistake that couldn’t have been faked.
Listen to Thibault’s performance above. If you close your eyes, it’s easy to forget you’re hearing a teenage kid, and imagine it’s the King himself.
The video has been viewed more than 2 million times since Monday.
