4-year-old boy from Mass. sings the classics


From Frank Sinatra to Elvis, Cameron Barilone has it covered. The pre-schooler had his first paid gig over the weekend alongside his father, who is also an entertainer.

Cameron says he loves to sing the classics, including songs by Sinatra and Johnny Cash.

His parents say they are shocked by their son's ability to remember lyrics, as doctors said medical complications as a toddler would likely slow him down mentally.

"[In] his grandmother's van, she had a cassette of the Everly Brothers, that's her favorite group. So she was playing the Everly Brothers and little beknownst to me he ended up learning basically every song on the cassette," said Cameron's father, Joe Barilone.

Cameron began performing at a nursing home six months ago.
