According to CBS News, Avett's mum Sara Moore said he loves to perform and has been playing music since he was 11 months old.

"The moment he could pull himself to reach the piano, he was playing the melody to 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.'

"Music is in his body," Moore said. "He's really practicing on performing now. Since his talent is so amazing, people are asking him to perform."

"He's completely in one eye but has a little bit of vision in the other," his mum Sarah said. "He's significantly visually impaired. He walks with cane and he reads braille."

Avett's cover of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody has already had 3.8 million views online and the number is climbing.

Alongside the Queen cover, Avett also plays Adele, Alicia Keys, The Beatles and Bach's 'Minuet on G', and uploads the videos to his YouTube channel.
