The boy’s mother, Danna Miller, said: “We did just watch a documentary on [Houston] about a month ago, and so he started downloading her songs and that was the one he got stuck on. He kept on playing it in the car and Dane has fallen in love with it. He has put his own touch on it.”

She added: “He’s been musical since around 2 years old. He’s been playing the drums. He sings. He loves music. He puts his whole heart into everything he does.”
