Video: 7-Year-Old Kid Nails AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” on The Voice Kids in Spain


My kid just turned six, and while he enjoys jamming metal in the car from time to time — his favorites are Anthrax, Ghost and Corrosion of Conformity — getting him to tap along to a metronome is the farthest we’ve gotten in his education as a musician.

Jesús del Río, on the other hand, is just one year older and already a bona fide star. Appearing on La Voz Kids, Spain’s version of the popular British television series The Voice Kids, del Río impressed all four of the shows judges within seconds of beginning to belt out Brian Johnson’s vocals on AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell,” sending the panel into hysterics while he keeps his cool and works through the tune.

You can watch the performance below, followed by the requisite conversation with the judges that you’ll need to speak Spanish to understand. Needless to say, del Río will move on to the next round, and we look forward to hearing and seeing more from him!
