Popstar Beyonce Knowles Thumbs up Teen Violinist's YouTube Cover


It's not every day a high school violinist gets a compliment paid from international pop icon Beyonce Knowles.

But the pop star recently posted a cover on her facebook fan page of her latest smash hit 'Drunk in Love' – performed on violin by a 16 year old Philadelphia high school student, Emmanuel Houndo.

She simply wrote: 'Amazing'. And, we tend to agree.

'I like to use YouTube to share my passion,' Emmanuel, originally from West Africa, has said.

And with over 430,000 YouTube views, in under 2 weeks, he's certainly doing his bit to draw new audiences to the field.
