this guy

My nephew Jacob is an amazing kid. At thirteen, one minute he's a silly little boy and the next minute he's a maturing young man. He's smart, funny and incredibly talented. He plays the cello in the school orchestra and sings in the church choir, two choirs at school and was just cast as 'Rum Tum Tugger' in 'CATS', the school's spring musical, a character usually portrayed as the feline equivalent of Elvis Presley or Mick Jagger.
Here's a video clip of one of Tugger's songs from the Broadway production:
It's a huge part and we're all very excited. Jacob has a really 'big' personality and loves to perform, so I know that he can pull this off. Can't wait to see him in action!
