No one expects 16-year-old to sound just like Elvis Presley – then he takes the mic

There are some artists, whether singers, actors, or another type of performers, who leave an impact so profound that their legacy lives on long after they are no longer around.

Take Elvis Presley for example. No matter how good someone is when it comes to creating music and performing it, there will always be only one king.

Elvis Presley gave the world some of the best hits like Jailhouse Rock, In The Ghetto, Hound Dog and Love Me Tender, which are incredibly popular until this very day and will likely be listened to and enjoyed by many future generations.

With this said, it doesn’t come as a surprise that many singers and performers sing his songs during concerts and on music talent shows.

When Benedikt Köstler, a 16-year-old from Germany, appeared on the German’s version of The Voice and said he would be singing Always On My Mind by the late Elvis Presley, the judges probably didn’t expect the sort of performance he treated them with.

Young Benedikt, however, was more than ready to steal the spotlight.

The moment he hit the first few tones of the iconic piece of music, the judges were completely stunned. All five of them hit their buzzer to turn around and see him finish the song.

“The best version I’ve ever heard of this song. His voice is unique!” one person commented. “So much perfection in one performance. God!” another added.

This young man’s performance is definitely worth a watch. Take a look at the video below.
