Elias Phoenix had two goals in life: Play Carnegie Hall and visit Ellen DeGeneres
on the set of her talk show. At the age of 7, he can cross both of those items off his list.
From the moment the pint-size prodigy steps onstage in this clip from Friday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show
, it's clear he has a personality to match his musical talent. Not only is he wearing a sharp ensemble that includes a fedora, vest and sparkling bow tie, Phoenix is a whirlwind of energy, showering DeGeneres with compliments and a steady stream of full-body hugs.
