Six-year-old Ethan here hails from Westport, Connecticut, where he lives with his parents Mike and Alison.

But despite his autism spectrum disorder limiting his social skills, he excels in all things musical, learning how to play The Beatles' I Will on the piano by ear at the age of four, and since then he's gone on to master such hits as A-Ha's Take on Me and James Taylor’s Mockingbird.

His parents' YouTube channel now boasts dozens of his covers, and just to give you a taste of his prodigious talent, we've gathered together some of our favourites here below for a special one-off video gallery.
