He is a six-year-old boy suffering from a form of autism that makes social interaction difficult but he is a gifted piano player.

Meet Ethan Walmark, the autistic boy who has become a YouTube sensation with his piano-playing talent. Music has become a therapy for him.

In this viral video, he plays an impressive rendition of Billy Joel’s classic “Piano Man.”

Looking coyly up at the camera, he trills out an introduction to the song, and then he’s off, barely glancing down at the keys as he plays, clearly a natural.

Being too short to even reach the pedals, he stands by the piano, coming up to about shoulder height on the seated guitar player.

His parents, Mike and Alison, were wowed by his ability to play the Beatles’ I Will on the piano by ear when he was just four.

And they have given him their whole-hearted encouragement ever since

‘We just want our son to be happy, whatever that means to him.’ Mike Walmark said. ‘It’s not about us anymore. It’s about him.’

Ethan has 20 videos on YouTube of him performing hits such as Take on Me by A-Ha and James Taylor’s Mockingbird with siblings and by himself.

A four-year-old girl from Winchester, Hampshire, has been accepted into Mensa after achieving a score of 159 on an IQ test, just one point below Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Heidi Hankins was spotted as being of a “genius level” of intelligence after she taught herself to read, add and subtract, count to 40, draw pictures of people, recite poems and read books meant for seven-year-olds at the age of two.

Four-year-old Heidi Hankins has an IQ of 159, just one point below Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein

Her father, Dr Matthew Hankins, 47, from Winchester, Hampshire, who works as a lecturer at the University of Southampton, said she had shown signs of high development from a very early age.

Dr Hankins said: ‘Heidi has really flourished quicker than other children – academically, artistically and physically.

‘We don’t push Heidi at all. She has taken up everything herself and teaches herself.

‘She is not precocious, she is just a little girl who likes her Barbies and Lego but then you will find her sitting down and reading a book.’

‘We always thought Heidi was pretty bright because she was reading early,’ said her father, Matthew, 46.

‘I happen to specialise in measuring IQs in children and I was curious about her, and the results were off the scale.’

‘I got her the complete set of the Oxford Reading Tree books when she was two and she read through the whole set of 30 in about an hour. It’s what you would expect a seven-year-old to do. She was making noises and trying to talk literally since she was born and by age one her vocabulary was quite good. She was using full sentences almost as soon as she started to speak.’

Michelle Sung Wie , (Wie Seong-mi, born October 11, 1989) is an American professional golfer. In 2006, she was named in a Time magazine article, one of 100 people who shape our world.

Omega Ambassador Michelle Wie

Wie was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. Her parents were immigrants from the Republic of Korea (South Korea) who came to the United States in the 1980s. Her father, Byung-wook Wie, is a former professor of transportation management at the University of Hawaii. Her mother was South Korea’s women’s amateur golf champion in 1985 and competed in a Miss Korea pageant. Her paternal grandfather, Dr. Sang Kyu Wie, a resident of Jangheung, Jeollanam-do, was an emeritus professor at Seoul National University.

Michelle Wie

When she was born, since both of her parents had been Korean, Wie had been a dual citizen of both the Republic of Korea and the United States automatically. But, the Republic of Korea does not allow dual citizenship after the age of 21. Wie has opted for United States citizenship.

Wie graduated from Punahou School in Honolulu, Hawaii in June, 2007. On December 19, 2006, she announced that she would be attending Stanford University where there are family ties. Her paternal grandfather was a visiting professor and an aunt and uncle are both graduates.

She enrolled in September, 2007 as a freshman, but as a professional golfer, Wie is not eligible under NCAA rules to play for Stanford’s golf team. During her first three years at Stanford, she attended only during the fall and winter quarters, running from late September through mid-March each year. She took leaves of absence during the rest of the year to play professional golf.

Wie began playing golf at the age of four. In 2000, at the age of ten, she shot a 64 at one of her favorite courses to qualify for a USGA amateur championship event at the USGA’s Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship, becoming the youngest player ever to do so. Eight years later, Wie’s mark was broken by fellow Hawaiian Allisen Corpuz who qualified when she was five months younger than Wie had been when she set the record.

In 2001, at the age of 11, she won both the Hawaii State Womens Stroke Play Championship and the Jennie K. Wilson Womens Invitational, the oldest and most prestigious womens amateur tournament in Hawaii. She also advanced into match play at the Women’s U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship.

In 2002, the prodigy won the Hawaii State Open Women’s Division by thirteen shots. She also became the youngest player (at 12 years old) to qualify for an LPGA event, the Takefuji Classic held in Wie’s home state of Hawaii. While she went on to miss the cut, her record stood for five more years until it was broken in 2007 by 11-year-old Ariya Jutanugarn.

Also in 2002, Wie reached the semifinals of the U.S. Women’s Amateur Public Links Championship, a tourney she would later win.

At the 2003 Kraft Nabisco Championship, Wie became the youngest player to make an LPGA cut. She carded a 66 in the 3rd round, tying the amateur record for a women’s major championship and qualifying her to play in the final group of the championship.

In June 2003, Wie won the Women’s Amateur Public Links tournament, becoming the youngest person ever, male or female, to win a USGA adult event. Later that summer, she made the cut at the US Women’s Open when she was still just 13, the youngest player ever to do so.

Amazingly, Wie was not satisfied with taking on the LPGA. She attempted to compete against men in the 2003 Sony Open on the PGA Tour. Though she missed the bid, she punctuated her year by joining the final grouping in her first LPGA major, and playing in three tournaments in which she was the only female.

In 2004, Wie qualified for the Sony Open, becoming the youngest player to ever play on the PGA tour. She missed the cut, but made headlines everywhere for making such an incredible appearance. Wie was also selected for the U.S. golf team, and finished an amazing fourth at the LPGA major event, the Kraft Nabisco Championship.

Michelle Wie waving to fans

On October 5, 2005, a week before her 16th birthday, Wie turned professional, accompanied by an enormous amount of hype and endorsements. She signed sponsorship contracts with Nike and Sony reportedly worth more than 10 million dollars per year.

What is her golf club leaning against? Hahaha!

Having turned professional, Wie was not a member of any professional tour. LPGA Tour membership age requirements require a golfer to be 18, although some players such as Morgan Pressel and Aree Song have successfully petitioned for an exemption to join at age 17.

Wie chose not to request an exemption and was thus only allowed to participate in a limited number of LPGA Tour events when given a sponsor’s exemption from 2005 until 2008. She also chose not to participate in the Tour’s Qualifying Tournaments (or “Q-School”) until December 2008, when she finished 7th to gain LPGA membership for the 2009 season.

In her first two tournaments on the LPGA Tour in early 2006, Wie gained a third place finish in the Fields Open in Hawaii, finishing one stroke off the lead, and finished in a tie for third in the Kraft Nabisco Championship, finishing one stroke behind, again.

Michelle Wie Celebrates Birdie

May, 2006, saw her play the Asian Tour SK Telecom Open, becoming the second woman (after Se Ri Pak) to make the cut at a men’s tournament in South Korea. Wie reportedly received US$700,000 in appearance fees at an event that offered only US$600,000 in total prize money. In all, she reportedly netted US$5 million in appearance and endorsement money for the two-week trip.

By the end of 2006, her first full year as a professional, Wie had missed the cut in 11 out of 12 tries against men, and remained winless in all 33 professional women’s tournaments she had entered, the last 9 as a professional.

In December 2007, Wie was ranked at #4 in the Forbes Top 20 Earners Under 25 with an annual earnings of 19 million dollars even though she struggled in golf tournaments that year.

Michelle Wie's winning reaction

On November 15, 2009, Wie won her first professional individual tournament, the Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Guadalajara, Mexico, a limited field event on the LPGA Tour, posting a score of thirteen under par 275 for a two-stroke margin over fellow American Paula Creamer, and besting Jiyai Shin, Christie Kerr and Morgan Pressel by two strokes. It was Wie’s 81st professional tournament and her 66th LPGA Tour event. She then finished second in the Ladies European Tour season-ending Dubai Ladies Masters tournament on December 912, 2009, shooting a 15-under-par 273, which put her three shots behind winner In-Kyung Kim.

On August 29, 2010, she posted a three-shot win over a full field at the CN Canadian Women’s Open, held at St. Charles Country Club in Winnipeg, Manitoba, for her second career professional victory. In her next LPGA event, she finished second in the 54-hole P&G NW Arkansas Championship two weeks later, shooting 201 (-12) but losing to Yani Tseng by one stroke after giving up an overnight three-stroke lead.

In 2000, from a remote village in India, a video footage emerged, showing a young girl receiving surgery to separate her fingers which were badly burned and fused together. The operation made headlines around the world because it was performed by a 7-year-old boy named Akrit Jaswal who was born on April 23, 1993.

Akrit Jaswal

The girl, who could not afford a doctor, was eight. Her hand had been burnt in a fire, causing her fingers to close into a tight fist that wouldnt open. Akrit had no formal medical training and no experience of surgery, yet he managed to free her fingers and she was able to use her hand again.

“He learned very fast,” says Raksha, Akrit’s mother. “After learning the alphabet, we started to teach him joining of words, and he started writing as well. He was two.” While in class II he cleared exams meant for class V. His mother realized he was special when he would answer graduate level questions.

At 4 when most children are learning their ABCs, Akrit was reading Shakespeare and assembling a library of medical textbooks. When he was 5 years old, he enrolled in school. One year later, Akrit was teaching English and math classes.

Akrit developed a passion for science and anatomy at an early age. Doctors at local hospitals took notice and started allowing him to observe surgeries when he was 6 years old. Inspired by what he saw, Akrit read everything he could on the topic. When an impoverished family heard about his amazing abilities, they asked if he would operate on their daughter for free. Her surgery was a success.

Akrit Jaswal

After the surgery, Akrit was hailed as a medical genius in India. Neighbors and strangers flocked to him for advice and treatment. Nowadays when Akrit is in town, people gather for an audience. They come with prescriptions and medicines, seeking advice. They come with ailments and injuries for a diagnosis. They come to see a doctor, a healer. They come to see a guru, and because in India, there is always a spiritual dimension.

At age 11, he was invited to London’s famed Imperial College to exchange ideas with scientists on the cutting edge of medical research.

When he was13 years old, Akrit had an IQ of 146 and was considered the smartest person his age in India; a country of more than a billion people. This is an IQ level that beats even that of Albert Einstein, according to the Gifted Development Centre, USA.

Akrit says he has millions of medical ideas, but he’s currently focused on developing a cure for cancer. “I’ve developed a concept called oral gene therapy on the basis of my research and my theories,” he says. “I’m quite dedicated towards working on this mechanism.” His research is focused on modification of malformed genes that cause cancer and their successful repair either by the activation of enzymes or direct modification of genotoxic drugs.

Growing up, Akrit says he used to see cancer patients lying on the side of the road because they couldn’t afford treatment or hospitals had no space for them. Now, he wants to use his intellect to ease their suffering. “Ive been going to hospitals since the age of 6, so I have seen first hand people suffering from pain,” he says. “I get very sad, and so that’s the main motive of my passion about medicine, my passion about cancer.”

Now 17, Akrit is working toward a Science degree in zoology, botany and chemistry at Punjab University in Chandigarh, India and is the youngest person ever accepted by an Indian university. Someday, he hopes to continue his studies at Harvard University.

When Akrit was eight his father resigned from his job as an economics adviser in Delhi so he could devote himself to his son’s talents. He moved the family back to their home village and set up a school for his son so his talents could be nurtured. He began a crusade to get the boy into a medical school when he was eight, but no Indian school would accept anyone under 17.

A very young Akrit Jaswal with his parents

Frustrated with the perceived lack of support for his gifted son, Akrits father became depressed and left the family home some time back, telling him not to get in touch until Akrit had found a cure for cancer. Adored by his self-sacrificing mother and treated as a genius, Akrit has faith he will do this.

In February 2007, Akrit Jaswal appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show. When Oprah asked if he could understand Shakespeare at the mere age of four he answered, “I could understand it. That’s why I was reading it.

Akrit on the Oprah Winfrey show

He is a prodigy who has been touted in America and sold to the media as a Mozart of modern medicine. But Akrit has his critics and plenty of people are sceptical about the claims made on his behalf. Some say he is just a very bright boy with an exceptional memory but no real gift for science. Others claim he is the victim of pushy parents who stole his childhood.

Being so intellectually gifted comes with a heavy burden of living up to other peoples expectation. He has been told that he must do something great with his life, and has made it known that he doesn’t always feel positive about having his life predetermined in such a way. Is that the price one must pay for being a prodigy?

The following videos are parts 1 – 5 of a program called “Extraordinary People” featuring Akrit Jaswal:

Elaina Smith is a very wise 7-year old girl, which is why she is Britains and possibly also the worlds youngest agony aunt.

Elaina, from Coventry, West Midlands, has her weekly slot on Mercia FM’s breakfast show and helps hundreds of people write to her with their problems each week.

Seven-year-old Elaina Smith sits at her desk at the studios of Mercia FM in Coventry

She gives tips on everything from ending a stale relationship, how to dump boyfriends and how to get a man to dealing with lazy older brothers.

The shows host, Andy Goulding, said adults responded to Elaina’s straight-talking attitude. He added: “The advice Elaina offers is laid-back and honest, we’ve been inundated with people emailing us with their problems since she’s been on our show.”

“Within a minute of us broadcasting her first slot a woman in hospital phoned in saying how much she enjoyed hearing the little girl’s voice, it really cheered her up.”

Elaina got her break after listening to the show as she got ready for school.

Mum Karen Harris, 31, a customer service worker, said: We were listening to the radio one morning, as we usually do when Elaina gets ready for school, when the presenter asked for people’s advice for a woman trying to get over a break-up.

Elaina said she wanted to phone in so we called and I was surprised with what she came out with.

She said the woman should go out bowling with the girls and have a large mug of milk.

The broadcaster was so impressed with her advice that they offered her a weekly slot to give tips to thousands of adult listeners.

Elaina said: I really enjoy it. I say whatever comes into my head and people like what I say. I used to want to be a vet, but now I want to be on the radio.

Her mum Karen Harris, 31, added: Elainas dad and I separated. Shes always trying to set me up with people in town. Im happy being single but if I do need advice I know who to ask.

When one listener wrote to Elaina asking how to get a man, the street-wise seven-year-old replied: Shake your booty on the dance floor and listen to High School The Musical. Make sure he has got money and a big car.

Another girl asked for advice on what she should do about her lazy older brother. Elaina answered: Tell him to get a job and stop watching Loose Women on the telly.

When a woman asked how to get her man back, Elaina told her: Hes not worth the heartache. Lifes too short to be upset with a boy.

And on breaking up with a boyfriend, Elaina told a listener: Change your locks and telephone number and pretend youre not on.

Asked about what to do when the boys are chasing her, she replied: I just hide in someones locker or the changing room.

A child prodigy is someone who at an early age masters one or more skills at an adult level. And Cleopatra Stratan is without doubt one such prodigy.

Child Prodigy Cleopatra Stratan

This precocious Romanian girl is the youngest person to score commercial success as a singer. She was just over 3 when her 2006 album La vrsta de trei ani (meaning “At the age of 3″) was released. It went on to sell more than 150,000 albums in Romania alone, thus hitting double platinum. She holds the record for being the youngest artiste that performed live for two hours in front of a large audience, the highest paid young artiste, the youngest artiste to receive 3 MTV awards, and the youngest artiste to score a number one hit in a country (“Ghita” in Romanian Singles Chart).

CLEOPATRA STRATAN...Isn't she lovely?

Cleopatra Stratan (born October 6, 2002 in Chi?in?u, Moldova) is the daughter of Moldovan-Romanian singer, Pavel Stratan, who said that he had originally written the songs now sang by his child for himself. Cleopatra not only follows her father in his career but she has achieved greater success than her dad.

Cleopatra Stratan With Her Parents

Pavel Stratan was in a studio recording a song with 3-year-old Cleopatra hanging around when Cleopatra impulsively grabbed a microphone and started singing along with Pavel. It stunned everyone so they ended up recording the song with Cleopatra performing the lead vocals.

On August 20, 2006, Cleopatra Stratan was aged only over 3 years old when she held her first concert in front of 400 people, thereby becoming the first artist ever to perform live on a stage in front of a large audience at the age of 3. She performed 28 songs in the two-hour concert, accompanied on guitar by her father.

Cleopatra started her first concert saying: My name is Cleopatra Stratan and even though I am only three years old I am determined to sing you both songs from my album called La varsta de trei ani and from my father album called Amintiri din copilarie. I will make my debut with this evening.

Cleopatra

During the concert, Cleopatra Stratan launched her first album At the Age of 3″ which includes hits such as Mama” (Mother) and Ghita.

On the Christmas Day 2006 a new record was smashed Cleopatra was paid 10,000 Euros for one single song sung in front of a large audience in Piatra Neamt, Romania. The entire sum was then donated to the poor in a TV show.

On the 10th of May 2007 Cleopatra won three prizes at Romanian Music Awards organized by MTV Romania in Sibiu. “Ghita” – which is the song best known and favourite with the Romanian public – won three awards of which the most important are Best Song and Best New Artist. The song is Cleopatras biggest hit to date.

In 2008, Cleopatra released her second album called La Varsta De 5 Ani with the hit song “Zunea-Zunea”. On December 13, 2008, her brother, Cezar (named by Cleopatra) was born. She also had a concert on 20 December before leaving for Chisinau to see her younger brother.

Cleopatra Stratan has also launched her Cleopatra singing-doll, selling the first 5,000 lot of dolls in just three days. Cleopatra, the doll, is 35 centimeters high and knows to sing Ghita. Available at 150 Romanian lei (about $70), the doll ‘lives’ in a red traveling bag similar to the one that Cleopatra used to carry in her video for Ghita.

Cleopatra Stratan Doll

The Spanish company that produces the doll announced it would also come up with clothes for the doll, imitating the apparel used by the little singer on the stage and in videos.

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see. – Edgar Degas

Aelita Andre is currently only three but she has been making waves as an abstract painter even before she was barely two. She cant even tie her own shoelaces yet, but her paintings have been featured in famous art galleries around the world.

Aelita Andre The 3-year-old abstract artist

Aelita Andre, of Russian heritage, is the youngest professional painter in the world and currently living in Melbourne, Australia with her mother Nikka Kalashnikova and her father Michael Andre. She is a member of NAVA (National Association for the Visual Arts).

In October 2009, Mark Jamieson, the director of Brunswick Street Gallery in Melbourne’s Fitzroy, was asked by a Russian-born photographer whose work he represented to consider the work of another artist.

Nikka Kalashnikova showed Jamieson some abstract paintings by an artist named Aelita Andre. Jamieson liked what he saw and agreed to include it in a group show, alongside work by Kalashnikova and Julia Palenov at his gallery later this month.

Jamieson then started to promote the show, printing glossy invitations and placing ads in the magazines Art Almanac and Art Collector, featuring the abstract work. Only then did he discover a crucial fact about the new artist: Aelita Andre is Kalashnikova’s daughter, and then she was just 22 months old.

“I was shocked and, to be honest, a little embarrassed,” Jamieson said, but he decided to proceed with the exhibition.

Jamieson said his gallery had a policy of supporting emerging artists, although that policy did not usually extend to artists quite so young. He said it was difficult to judge abstract art.

Kalashnikova said she and her husband, Michael Andre, did not set out to mislead the gallery. They simply wanted Aelita’s work to be judged on its merits. “I wanted to get it out there and get a separate opinion,” she said. “Of course, every mother is proud of their child. I didn’t tell him Jamieson because I had all these feelings going through my head – fear, embarrassment.”

Aelita had her first solo show in 2009 featuring all the works she painted as a one year old (she had just turned two when her exhibition opened) at the prestigious Brunswick Street Gallery in Melbourne, Australia. The show attracted worldwide media attention with 60 Minutes calling her The Next Big Thing and the Chinese press calling her paintings The work of a Master. BBC London rang to congratulate Aelita on her second birthday and for her immense achievement. The Australian media dubbed her Pee Wee Picasso. She has been compared to Jackson Pollock by the press and her visionary style to Salvador Dali and Wassily Kandinsky.

While still a two year old Aelita was invited to Hong Kong where she staged her solo exhibition and painted live in front of over 60 Chinese and international media crews for over one hour (she had been scheduled to paint for only five minutes).

Aelitas paintings are joyful, happy spontaneous paintings that could be proudly hung anywhere and her art is an antidote to the oppressive qualities of expectation in western painting. They radiate a genuine vitality, energy and beauty. Her works are so vivid and expressive; so full of energy and depicting amazing subjects.

Cute Aelita Andre

Though still a child, Aelita is a fully mature artist whose works are strikingly liberated, bold and vivacious. She paints with an innocent eye. Her paintings are a window into the primal and subconscious creative process – a field pioneered by Freud and Jung. Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso elevated spontaneous and accidental painting as a supreme creative process allowing us to peer into the workings of the mind.

Aelita Andre

Her first painting on canvas, Russian ”Mir” Space Station in Cherry Blossom, was bought recently by a Hong Kong collector for $HK200,000 (A$28,000). That’s a pretty good effort for a painter who can’t yet tie her shoelaces.

To date Aelita has painted over 200 paintings, many of them large canvases. And with thirty-two of her paintings sold to collectors around the world for prices that go as high as A$28,000, Aelita has earned a small fortune.

Aelita Andre's painting

Another Aelita Andre painting

Aelita is obsessed with painting, running around demanding “painting, painting!” and “kist, kist!” (the Russian word for ‘paintbrush’). Now a worldwide sensation Aelita’s rise began from simultaneous front page articles in both leading Australian newspapers: The “Sydney Morning Herald” and “The Age”. She was featured by every major television network and her paintings continue to ignite heated debates around the world about art.

But Aelitas parents ignored malicious comments and encouraged their child to pursued her passion. According to her father, all they do is encourage her every gesture, whether it be dumping an entire can of paint on the canvas, or putting it on her clothes. Everything she does is original, and thats why her art is so highly appreciated. As for the accusations of the parents making money off of Aelitas artworks, they deny anything of the sort and claim all the money goes into a trust fund, for the artist to use when shes all grown up.
