Church Choir Set Young Man on Talented Path

Eric Clinton sings, dances and plays ball — all with aplomb.

Patch Whiz Kid of the Week: Eric Clinton, 15

Whiz Kid's School: Middletown High School freshman

Whiz Kid's Interests: Singing (gospel choir), drama, football, basketball and more.

Whiz Kid's Key to Awesomeness: Do kids get better than this?

Eric is one busy young man; he plays basketball, football, is active in the Drama Club, has a strong passion for singing and makes the honor roll.

Eric actually starting singing before he could speak! Sounds weird, right? Before he could speak any words clearly, he was able to drive in the car with his mom and sing clear as day. That is some serious talent. Eric has learned most of his singing skills from his church choir.

He had performed in such plays as “Shenandoah,” “Seussical the Musical,” “Hey George”and “It’s a Small World After All." Many of Eric’s teachers tell him that he will be a very successful singer one day.

I will personally looking to see him on the next "American Idol!"

I asked Eric what makes him an awesome person: “I never give up and always keep my head up. I don’t care what anyone else thinks. Always be a leader not a follower.”
