    10-year-old Calum Courtney from Basildon in the UK sang a flawless rendition of "Who's Lovin' You" by Smokey Robinson in a local grocery store. The boy's mother posted a video on December 13, but it spread online just now.

    According to Calum's mom, Tupney Courtney, 34, the boy suffers from a mild form of autism but wasn't shy about singing in front of a surprised crowd in an Asda supermarket. 

    However, Calum's singing was originally meant just to get the attention of shoppers to his aunt's fundraising stall but has since grabbed the attention of a record producer.

    This young musician's performance has triggered a huge wave of reaction in the social networks. Some has expressed their excitement via Twitter:

    Calum's mother added that Calum is especially talented in music. 

    "He taught himself to play the drums when he was 18 months old," Courtney explained.

    The video was filmed at an Asda in Basildon, Essex, and has received more than a million views after his aunt Katy posted it on Facebook.
