When Samuel was only nine, he covered Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never” at the World Star Search talent competition. In the clip, everything from the dance to his vocals to the rap is pretty impressive for his young age. Plus, he’s got a constant smile on his face that shows how much he loves what he’s doing. This performance is just one of the many indicators of how talented Samuel is.
