Jesse Jane McParland is now 11-years-old, but she proved her toughness when she was only nine. The young girl is a martial arts master, a true Samurai, and she’s certainly not anybody that you’d want to mess with.

“I saw people doing martial arts and I said ‘Daddy, daddy, look at this,’ but he said it was too dangerous,” she said during an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show a couple years back.

Jesse decided that dancing or gymnastics weren’t really for her, what she really wanted to do was become an expert at martial arts.

“We went to watch basketball, but I couldn’t stop thinking about karate. We went home and mummy asked why I didn’t like ballet or Irish dancing, and I said, ‘Not every girl dreams of being a little princess.’”

Her Ellen appearance was about one year after the talented samurai was a contestant on the ninth season of Britain’s Got Talent. Everyone thinks she’s adorable as she speaks to the judges — but then she comes back with a sword.

Where Is This Child Prodigy Today?

Akiane Kramarik was first introduced to the nation as a child prodigy in 2003 when she painted two pieces titled Prince of Peace: The Resurrection, and Father Forgive Them. The realism the young child was able to produce in her paintings alone is noteworthy, but it’s her reply when asked where her inspiration comes from that has everyone captivated!

The two paintings are renditions of Jesus Christ that Akiane saw in what she describes as her “visions”. Akiane was born in 1994 in Mount Morris, Illinois. Her mother was a self-proclaimed atheist, and her father hailed from a non-practicing Catholic family.

So when the 4-year-old started drawing with a realism beyond her years, proclaiming the talent and visions were gifts from God, her mother was taken aback.

In several interviews, her mother explains that there is zero explanation as to how Akiane came to know about God or Jesus, or any of the other spiritually rich images she has created. The only explanation that has ever been given is the one that the young artist gives herself; she’s seen these people and places before, and God gave her the gift of her art to help bring people closer to Him.

As if the supernatural talent emblazoned in her imagery weren’t enough, her claims of seeing the true face of Jesus were solidified when the NY Times national bestseller book was released Heaven Is For Real. The nonfiction book is about a young boy named Colton Burpo who had a near-death experience at the age of four.

He had to undergo emergency surgery for a burst appendix and while he was on the table, he went to Heaven where he met angels, a great-grandpa he’d never met, and a miscarried sister he’d never been told about.

After the boy told his parents things he couldn’t have possibly known, they started pressing him for as much detail about his trip to heaven as possible. One thing they would do is show Colton hundreds of images of the face of Jesus, and according to Colton, none of them came close to Him.

Then one day, after three years of seeing and searching, Colton came across Akiane’s Prince of Peace: The Resurrection painting and told his father “They finally got it right!”  Continue to the next page to see the otherworldly experiences rendered by this little angel’s paintbrush!

Thank goodness for shows like America’s Got Talent and The X Factor. These types of shows have allowed so many people to showcase their talent to the world. The best part? All walks of life can audition.

On a recent episode of The X Factor UK, a 22-year-old woman from the Philippines. Her name is Alisah Bonaobra; she and her family have lived their lives as street vendors. They’ve lived a very humble life.

“I am only here because of my mother’s friend, she contributed enough money for a plane ticket,” she explains to the judges. It was such a blessing for her to even have the opportunity to share her talent with them that day.

Alisah was so excited to be on the show that brought her whole family! Well — digitally anyway! Her entire family joined her from monitors that were nearby. When Simon asked her why she was there, her response was amazing:

“I believe my talent is world-class and I’m here to represent all the Filipino communities here in the UK.”

We can all take a lesson from this incredible little boy; he teaches us that we should have no shame in who we are and to be proud of our uniqueness. He’s a 12-year-old singer named Reuben de Maid from Cardiff, UK and he was once bullied for being who he is.

Reuben is from the Llandaff district in Cardiff and loves being in the spotlight. He has a huge personality, loves wearing makeup, and gets a thrill from being on stage.

Reuben caught the attention of Ellen Degeneres and she absolutely fell in love with the talented young singer. We can’t blame her one bit — his voice is incredible.

“I absolutely love this kid from Wales – his voice, his character, his uniqueness, all of it,” Ellen said on her Facebook page.

Ellen invited Reuben to be a guest on her popular talk show; of course, he accepted. The 12-year-old performed a beautiful cover of the remarkable song “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going” from the movie Dreamgirls.

Not only is his performance absolutely breathtaking, but the interview that Ellen does with him afterward is worth watching. He has quite the personality and speaks about the days when he was bullied for being who he is.
