Every now and then I am directed to a new site by one of my friends. This time it was my YouTube friend Ken who introduced me to Eleven year old Anthony Javier Silva or better known by his stage name Ajsil.
From the very first note of this boy’s music video he captured 100% of my attention! Most young artists his age sing covers of other artist’s songs and while this holds true for Ajsil, his originality coupled with some amazing video creativity, truly make him unique and extraordinary. This boy is not just a good little eleven year old singer, but he is already a true artist showing his own style and musical ability.
“Ajsil has a natural musical talent”
His Dad explains;
“Aj became involved in music from a very early age working next to me in my home recording studio, shadowing and assisting me in my music productions and recording sessions. Being around music so early in life has helped him tremendously in developing an incredible musical ear. He is able to naturally harmonize vocals on cue on any song as well as develop his own musical ideas and melodies. He is extremely fast and accurate when recording vocals, doubling voices and harmonizing since he has been doing that throughout his young life. A few months ago I asked him if he wanted to tryout for a singer/actor/model audition in Orlando Florida and he answered yes. He sang the National Anthem and received a standing ovation. It was then that he realized his full potential for singing and asked me to help him with his music career. I always knew my son had great talent and eventually would realize it himself and want it to go professional, but I didn’t want to force it upon him, the decision had to be his own”.
His Dad told me that he now dedicates 100% of his free time to help Aj in any way that he can and in only two months Aj has recorded seven covers and posted them to You Tube. Aj’s cover of the Bruno Mars song “Just The Way You Are” was the first one to blow me away. I know that you too will be more than impressed with this young man’s magnetism and charisma.
Ajsil is currently working on a demo album writing songs that will fit his age group.
Because of this God given musical ability, Ajsil can pick up an instrument and very quickly learn to play it if he wants to. He demonstrates that in a few of his video covers.
He wanted to perform with the guitar so his Dad showed him how to play and he quickly learned it and recorded the cover. Aj is now taking formal guitar lessons and improving his skills daily. He also has been taking vocal lessons for about 4 months. He can also play the drums and create different beats. Aj loves to explore making different musical compositions and enjoys being creative. He truly loves music and it is what makes him most happy.
Like most Eleven year old boys, Aj also enjoys Basketball, Play Station 3,(Rockband ), Reading and lists his favorite books as, “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” and the Harry Potter series. Topping his list of favorite movies is all three of the “Toy Story’ films.
Academically Aj enjoys studying Social Studies and sings in the choir at school. He lists Usher, Justin Timberlake, Neyo, Luis Fonsi, Michael Jackson, Akon, and Mark Anthony as his favorite artists and would love to perform with Usher!
Ajsil dreams to become a famous singer / actor. In this new video he demonstrated how he can take Justin Biebers’ new single “Pray” and truly make it his own.
I also particularly enjoyed his rendition of the new Greyson Chance song “Waiting outside the lines”!
Here is Ajsil’s latest music video cover of the new Michael Jackson / Akon song “Hold My Hand!
“I must say, of all the boys who have graced these pages, I have a very strong feeling about Ajsil! You can be assured this will not be the last time you will see him here. I’m preparing for an explosion of fans that will soon be flocking not only to his YouTube Site and Twitter Page, but also liking his FaceBook Fan Page, along with being first in line to purchase his new EP when it becomes available”.
