David Garrett – my new favorite musician

David Garrett

I was glad I turned on Good Morning America this morning because I got to watch violinist David Garrett perform Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.”  David recently set a record to become the The World’s Fastest Violinist, a feat to be documented in 2010’s Guinness Book of World Records.  To break the record, he played “Flight of the Bumblebee” in a dizzying 66 seconds, that’s 13 notes per second.  David graduated at the Julliard School in New York City and put himself through school by working as a model.  He has been called the “David Beckam of classical music” and with these good looks I can see why.

If you missed today’s GMA performance, you can watch it here.

    David Garrett has worked very hard to get where he is now..

    Heck ..he must’ve been GREAT at age 8 too!

    Would love to see some of his earlier violin playing as a child too!

    Just makes people really appreciate the hard work people do in this world..

    Just saw David Garrett last night at Hard Rock Orlando. He is truly amazing and adorable. Great personality. I took my sons (ages 8 & 9), who play the violin. Their eyes were wide with awe. I think David’s playing inspired them.
