Jacob Velazquez is just 7-years-old, but he can play the piano better than most adults.

His family says Jacob was diagnosed with autism when he was just 4-years-old, but that hasn’t slowed him down one bit.

Jacob spends a lot of time listening to music and even creating his own.

Recently, he memorized portions of Taylor Swift’s “1989” album to create a piano medley.

He had no idea his efforts would be noticed by Swift.
