A Capella Magic by Mike Tompkins

One of Canada's YouTube sensations is Mike Tompkins.  He is a musician that is making music with his voice, mouth and sometimes other objects like glasses of water, or a tambourine.  The latest song that he did is a mix of two songs; "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry and "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars.  When I first watched this video, I was awestruck.  To see the way he was able to put all the different sounds together to make a great music video was quite incredible.  He has other songs he has done as well, like "Fireflies" by Owl City.  This guy has talent!  Click on the arrow to hear Mike's rendition of "Teenage Dream" and "Just the Way You Are".  I want to hear more from Mike, he's quite entertaining.
