Mykel Lewis is 11 years old, but he's got the pipes of a professional singer.

The fifth-grader took the stage during a talent show at University Heights Intermediate School in Jonesboro, Ark., to give his rendition of one of music's hardest-to-sing songs, 'I Will Always Love You' by Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston.

One of Mykel's teachers posted the video on Ellen DeGeneres' website saying, "He received a standing ovation halfway through the song. This child has over come lots of challenges, and watching him in a positive light was breathtaking."

Breathtaking, indeed. Wow.

Talent Show!
