Some of us are born with music already running through our veins. We have all watched videos of small babies rocking out on instruments, even though they do not know how to play, or babies that can barely speak, singing their hearts out. When musical babies and kids feel the music in their soul, they have to unleash it.
Cora-beğ Corayev is one of those kids. He does not only sing because he is talented, he sings because his soul has to.
Cora-beğ Corayev is an Afghan child with a beautiful voice.
Cora-beğ Corayev covers the classic “I Will Always Love You.” This classic song has made been famous by two of the biggest singers of all time. “I Will Always Love You” was written and released by Dolly Parton in 1974. Whitney Houston covered the song for her film “The Bodyguard” in 1992. Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston are two legends in their own right and covering “I Will Always Love You” is a big song for such a small boy.
Many people do not know that the song was originally a Dolly Parton song, but Dolly does not mind.
“The way she took that simple song of mine and made it such a mighty thing, it almost became her song. Some writers say, ‘Ooh, I hate the way they’ve done that to my song or that version wasn’t what I had in mind.’ I just think it’s wonderful that people can take a song and do it so many different ways,” Dolly explained to Q Magazine.
Corayev took a small cue from Whitney Houston and tried to make the song his own.
While he might be covering the Whitney Houston version, he has added in some autotune to make it sound just a bit different. Everyone has to make a cover their own and this was Corayev’s small way to make his version unique. If Dolly did not mind that Whitney changed the song, she probably has no problem with Corayev doing the same.
There is no fear in Corayev’s face as he starts to sing, like many might have in covering such a classic song. Instead, all you can witness is the connection that he feels with the song. From the very beginning Corayev sings with intense passion. He cannot help but sing with emotion that goes throughout his entire body.
When he really is feeling the moment he will move his arms or close his eyes, he feels the music in his very being.
As the song progresses, Corayev only becomes more and more intense in his singing. The camera pulls away from his face later in the video to show viewers how Corayev’s entire body is entranced into the song. When he belts out the chorus, he wants the world to know that he is serious.
Corayev is very talented and overloads his viewers with his mega cuteness.
Viewers have a lot to say about Corayev’s performance. Such as,
“He is not singing this song, he living it…. it’s so sweet”
“His actions are so cute and is voice is amazing.”
“This kid has talent I know there are microphone effects but he can still sing”
Watch the adorable performance in full right below and let your heart melt from the cuteness.
