Taylor Swift Shares 7 Year-Old Piano Prodigy's '1989' Medley

(Radio.com) Jacob Velazquez is a 7 year Taylor Swift fan. But that's not what makes him different from other boys his age. No, it's not the Autism either. Jacob is a piano prodigy and has recorded a frankly pretty incredible medley of songs from Swift's 1989 album.

Only hours after posting it, the omnipresent "Bad Blood" singer retweeted a link to the Autism Speaks website showcasing the young talent. "My 7 year-old son Jacob was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4," explained his mother Tina. "He is a gifted pianist and loves Taylor Swift."

"I sometimes sit with him at the piano and call out track numbers from her most recent album," Tina continues. "Jacob will play the song that corresponds, without ever being taught the music notes."

According to his mother, Velazquez listens to her album every day and is constantly watching her videos on YouTube. Read more here.
