This clip shows a very young Little Richard was a musical prodigy. Here he's playing "Caldonia" in a movie 15 years before he did "Tutti Frutti."

Wow that is amazing. What ever happened to Little Richard? I will have to Google it. It does make me think of a story. I bought a second hand keyboard and my four year old grandson was playing with it. I was in another part of the house and heard this beautiful song being played. I thought “a child prodigy!!!" as I ran to the living room. He,of course, had just pressed the demo button. I didn't know I had a demo button until he pressed it.

I did a quick search about this video in google, and, lo and behold, it is not Little Richard.


Still amazing though, in some ways even cooler than if it were Little Richard. The guy who is the child performer quit the music biz at 14 and went on to become a Phd psychologist!
