So today I am going to possibly introduce you to another art form that uses just the voice and the mic. I guess you can call these people our younger teenage brothers and sisters. Their talent is extraordinary and I have been often blown away but what wonders they are able to work with just themselves and their microphones.

From Beatboxing wiki page ” Beatboxing is a form of vocal percussion which primarily involves the art of producing drum beats, rhythm, and musical sounds using one’s mouth, lips, tongue, voice, and more. It may also involve singing, vocal imitation of turntablism, the simulation of horns, strings, and other musical instruments. Beatboxing is connected with hip hop culture although it is not limited to hip hop music.”

Drop me a line (read comment) if this at all amazed you.
