Sparsh Shah was born with a disease called osteogenesis imperfecta, which has left his bones so brittle even a hard handshake could seriously injure him.
But he was also born with an impeccable singing voice, which he used to perform an amazing version of the national anthem before the New Jersey Devils took on the Dallas Stars on Sunday.
Shah, a 13-year old also known as Purhythm, is a scholar who can recite 250 digits of Pi, knows the 12 longest words in the English language and spelled a 45-letter word correctly at the age of 6.
He is also no rookie to music. He was cited by rapper Eminem's record label, Shady Recods, for his inspirational cover of his favorite rapper's 2010 hit "Not Afraid."
Shah's episode of NBC's "Little Big Shots" a youth talent show hosted by comedian Steve Harvey, also aired Sunday night.
