If you spend enough time online, you’re bound to see all kinds of different people and different skills.

Though the internet started off as a mostly text-based place, it has since expanded to allow all kinds of different videos and audio clips. With the dawn of YouTube, all kinds of people can add videos of themselves online performing all kinds of incredible skills and talents.

While major media outlets can also use YouTube to advertise their own videos, there’s something about finding amateur or user-uploaded content that’s particularly special.

And that’s definitely the case with this video.

The clip was loaded online in May 2019.

It features Karolina Protsenko, an 11-year-old violinist who has generated buzz for herself all around the world. Although she’s not a household name, Protsenko is a talented performer who was born in Ukraine.

She moved to the United States in 2015 and has been posting videos of playing violin online for years. Though there are plenty of street performers out there, few of them are as young or as talented as Protsenko.

In the video, Protsenko walks out into the middle of the crowd as the music plays in the background.

For those who can’t quite identify it, the instrumental is the drum background for “On the Floor” by Jennifer Lope and Pitbull.

The song was a huge dance hit back in 2004 though it remains popular to this day. Right away, the whole crowd starts clapping to support her.

After that, Protsenko plays the identifiable part of the song perfectly and smoothly while dancing around in the square. Although the music she’s playing is great, what makes it even cuter is that several other little girls run into the square as well and join in on the dancing!

Still, the performance isn’t quite over yet.

For a few more minutes, Protsenko plays her violin perfectly and dances around while she does it, thrilling the crowd.

When it’s finally over, she strikes one last note and does a pose—and the whole crowd gives her a huge round of applause. Since her performance was posted, it has been viewed nearly 11 million times on YouTube!

Still, this isn’t the only one of her performances to get this kind of online attention. One of the most popular is a violin cover of Post Malone’s hit song “Sunflower” from the new Spiderman soundtrack.

Although it’s a little bit different, it remains a powerful and faithful version of the hit:

For another reinterpretation of a hit song, take a minute to watch her cover of “Despacito” backed by pianist Dang Matt Smith!

Needless to say, Protsenko is a hugely talented and engaging performer for someone who’s so young! As these clips show, it’s important to always follow our dreams and passions while we’re young to set ourselves up for success. Although she’s incredible enough right now, she’s bound to only get even better as she gets older.
