Jacob Velazquez is an eight year pianist with PDDNOS (high functioning autism). He was born on September 29th, 2007. He began taking lessons at the age of four and that's proved just long enough for the miniature musician to make waves in the child prodigy world. Jacob has since performed on Good Morning America, The View, CNN, HLN, The Steve Harvey Show, Telemundo, and many more. At just five years old, Jacob was admitted to the National Musicians Guild, after performing ten classical pieces from memory.
Jacob recently caught the attention of Taylor Swift whom invited him to a show on her tour, after he played a piano medley of seven songs from her most recent album. Jacob dreams of performing on stage with her one day.
Jacob has also just released his first album entitled "Jacob" and has filmed two music videos. He loves being in the recording studio and although he is only in 2nd grade, Jacob already knows he wants to be a music producer.
