Ocean City in Maryland, also famously shortened as OCMD, is an Atlantic resort town in Worcester County largely famous for its natural beauty.

A pristine beach, the perfect place for abundant fishing, and a haven for seashell collectors. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Millions of people come to OCMD just to watch the waves breaking on the shore, view the sunset over the bay, or feel the winds of the sea rustling the dune grass. But in this video, an additional attraction makes the tourists fall in love with the place all over again.

Summer or not, Ocean City is the place to be. This long strip of resorts, which gained its status as the White Marlin Capital of the World way back in 1934, is also famous for its luscious saltwater taffy that melts in your mouth with an explosion of flavors. Adorning it is the boardwalk that stretches from the inlet and ends at 27th Street, which becomes a landmark of the town.

He effortlessly transforms one of James Bay’s famous hits from soft rock into a sweet ballad with his high-pitched voice, laced with a tinge of airiness sound. His voice echoes in the air, as he sings the riffs and falsettos impeccably. He is just so good that the audience can’t help but sing along with him. He is born a performer.

James Bay’s “Let It Go” is arguably one of the most heart-rendering songs in 2014.

It is a soulful classic filled with a rising current of despondency and heartache, something that a young kid probably knows nothing about. Yet despite his youth and inexperience in love, this kid brings the emotion out of the song through his singing. He definitely gives justice to the song with his amazing performance.

And no one would expect that his little voice would fit in the song like it’s his own.

In contrast with the original singer’s raspy voice which is thicker and more low-pitched, the boy’s voice breaks in certain parts of the songs, probably because of nerves or puberty, but it just adds color to his performance. It portrays a heartbreaking when the couple in the song drifts apart because of their toxic relationship.

As the song draws near the bridge, a man hands him a tip, which he returns with a shy “thank you” earning him chuckles from the crowd.
