Malachi Samedy, 9-Year-Old Drumming Prodigy, Uses His Music To 'Change The World' (VIDEO)
Amazing Kid Drummer Dreams Big
Malachi Samedy, 9, has been drumming since before he could walk. He got his first drum set at 24 months, was admitted to music school at age 4, and by the time he was 7, he was close to realizing his dream of performing for President Obama.
"When he was younger, he would just bang on everything," Malachi's father, Nasser Samedy, says in this HooplaHa video, "My wife was saying, 'You know, he's a drummer.'"
Malachi has been wowing older professional musicians with his talent ever since. What's more, he's using his talent to bring attention to causes that matter.
He performed at fundraisers for Haiti and Japan, and in 2011, CNBC asked Malachi to perform at the "Night Of Hope" benefit to promote child safety around the country, after which he was invited to play for the president.
