Must Watch: Boy with incurable disease, 125 fractures raps Eminem

Sparsh Shah gives classical twist to rap artist Eminem's 2010 hit 'Not Afraid'. (Screen grab)

By Staff

12-year-old Sparsh Shah, who hails from New Jersey, has become Internet's latest sensation.

Scroll down to watch the video and you will know why.

Sparsh aka Purhythm is driving the internet crazy with his classical twist to rap artist Eminem's 2010 hit 'Not Afraid'.

Shah, who was born with an incurable disease called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, wherein his bones are extremely brittle, uses a wheelchair to get around, but that doesn't break his spirit.

According to his Facebook page, he cannot bear weight on his hands and legs; and hence cannot walk or run like other normal kids. He had more than 125 fractures so far in 12 years of his life.

His inspiring vocals caught the attention of many including his 'biggest idol' Eminem and Chris Brown and has been endorsed by Indian superstar Salman Khan.

Despite of all the challenges, Sparsh's spirit is unbreakable. He aspires to sing in front of a billion people one day and inspire them that even a kid like him with such a severe medical condition/disabilities can achieve his dreams.

Sparsh has reportedly written 10 songs, short stories, poems and speeches and is a regular appearance on TV shows and radio.

And this cover uploaded by Shah in January 2016 on YouTube has 1,475,824 views as of today.

The performance on Facebook has scored over 10,000 shares and likes and has been viewed over 603,000 times.
