Toddler sings Les Mis classic at the top of his little lungs

The stirring performance has been getting a lot of traction.

WITH A CHALLENGING vocal range, Les Misérables’ Do You Hear the People Sing? would be a difficult number for most little kids to master.

This three-year-old, though, has no problem belting out the lyrics to the classic anthem, delivering an impassioned rendition from atop a piano bench in footage posted online.

The video, which his mam posted to YouTube, has been watched nearly half a million times in the past week.

And musical veteran Alfie Boe, who reprises Les Mis’ lead role of Jean Valjean on Broadway this month, was one of many impressed by the performance.

“This is amazing. A future Enjolras,” he tweeted.
