February 25, 2019

6th Grader Feng E gets "very normal" grades in music class because they make him play the recorder. However, he is already a legend on the ukulele.

The Taiwanese prodigy returned to Ellen on Monday to show off his skills while playing Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit", and performed a blistering version of the iconic song on his ukulele.

Looking to expand his horizons, Feng E expresses to Ellen that we would like to learn electric guitar. So of course in typical Ellen DeGeneres fashion, they gave him a new one to take home. 

Feng E started learning ukulele from his father when he was five-years-old. At age ten, he starred on Asia's Got Talent and recieved a golden buzzer.
