Most of us can’t remember what we were doing when we were 12, but I can say for certain I definitely wasn’t doing anything with as much talent as this little guy, Sparsh Shah.
He goes by the name ‘PURHYTHM‘, and his recent Eminem cover has garnered over 700,000 thousand views.
“Hello everyone! This is Sparsh, and this my debut clean cover of Eminem’s song, “Not Afraid” (with my classical touch) from his album “Recovery” as my rapper avatar, “PURHYTHM”. I feel like “Not Afraid” has been my power song ever since I heard it for the first time and Eminem became my idol in the rap genre. He has inspired me so much with his powerful songs and lyrics (minus curses), and I aspire that one day, I could get to meet him and sing (or rap!) with him. It’s always been my dream to inspire BILLIONS of people one day with my musical talent, and I wish that dream comes true.”
Great, right?! Sparsh has been learning Hindustani classical music for the last seven and a half years, and American vocal music for the last three years.
He was born with an in curable disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta that causes his bones to be brittle and fragile, and has had over 125 bone fractures in his life so far.
He doesn’t let that stop him though, as he’s helped raise an amazing half a million dollars for various charities, and has performed at community events, radio shows and other cool events!
He was recently quoted saying:
“I want to leave the marks of my footprints – aka wheelchair tracks – in the sand of legacy so deep that not even a tsunami can erase them,”
