Looping. That’s a word that’s going to start trending thanks to the very cool Mia Morris.

Who is this talented teenager?

Mia Morris is a drum prodigy who can also play guitar, bass, keyboards, and who knows what else.

This teen started drumming at the young age of ten.

“One day I found a drum set in my neighbor’s garage. From then on, I spent most days playing drums and collecting other instruments to experiment with to make noise in YouTube videos,” she told Nashville Voyager.

“By the time I was 13, I had begun making full recordings and videos of songs where I would play every instrument.”

So on now to the America’s Got Talent stage where Mia went on to amaze judges Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara and Simon Cowell.

Mia is from Nashville, Tennessee. A place known for rock and roll so this teenager thought she’d play all the instruments instead of just one.

Because, you know, that’s boring.

Her dream is to share her music and writing with the world.

Howie seems to be familiar with “Looping” but he asks Mia to explain what it is.

She even gives a little demonstration with her loop pedal, something the audience looked so fascinated with.

The high school student had everyone straining to see and hear her demo.

No back ups here. Mia just needs herself and a collection of instruments.

She begins playing a very cool riff on a bass guitar all while beat boxing to the melody.

Already, the judges and the crowd were smiling and bopping their heads.

Mia puts the bass down, walks over, picks up an electric guitar and begins playing some more this time humming along.

That’s rock and roll!

She moves over to the drums where she begins singing her original song, “Gone My Way”.

The one-woman band is at full swing and they are loving it!

And what did the judges have to say?

“I think you’re one of the coolest girls that’s been standing on that stage,” Sofia Vergara remarked.

“It was at times a bit of a mess,” Simon Cowell said, “but then again it should be.”

The audience, as expected, reacted but Simon added she was “original and talented.”

Cowell said that her effort, done live on the spot, “shouldn’t be perfect which is why I loved it so much.”

Howie called her a “star”.
