Elias Phoenix is a piano prodigy living in Brandon, Florida. He and his family traveled to Los Angeles so he could perform on Little Big Shots. It’s not Elias’ first time on a big stage – he’s performed multiple times at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City. And he’s appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show more than once. In one segment, he left the piano to rap Kanye West’s hit song “Gold Digger” with his twin brother Zion (see below).
The homeschooled twins Elias and Zion also competed on America’s Got Talent where they explained why they’ve never cut their hair. (Their mother made an emotional vow when they were born prematurely to never cut it.) Little Big Shots airs Sundays at 7pm and 8pm on NBC.
