Cheskino’s voice seems to have a huge range; he’s smooth, soulful, sharp, and gentle when it’s called upon and is a joy to listen to. This kid is totally talented. In a time where the quality of music entertainers is dwindling rapidly, it’s nice to hear a young guy who can actually sing and make you feel something with his interpretations.

Cheskino is fun to listen to, sing along with and dance to, as he turns out cover like Bruno Mars, Mark Ronson’s latest “Uptown Funk”, the Nico & Vinz chart topper “Am I Wrong”, One Direction’s “Steal My Girl” or Michael Jackson’s “Never Can Say Goodbye”. Cheskino has a great command of many styles and showcases incredibly heartfelt deliveries.

Cheskino is simply awesome and outrageously talented as an artist and performer, especially when considering he is only an 11-year-old boy. He is a strong vocalist but never overly dramatizes his performances. Cheskino can sing and his cover versions show that. But Cheskino’s videos also reveal his performing qualities. He has personality, charisma and a solid dose of self-confidence – absolutely necessary prerequisites for any artist wanting to move to their careers to next level.

If anything else, the collection of songs on Youtube proves that Cheskino is not a flash in the pan. The fact that this kid has got genuine talent is evident as your emotions go at full gallop the whole way through his performances. His deliveries over a nice variety of sounds and rhythms, makes Cheskino sound a lot more experienced that what he is!

Cheskino is one of those rare artists that can cross genres and consistently perform music that makes you want to dance, sing, and enjoy life. All the way through his covers, I did not hear one bad song. He has such a sweet sounding voice and fresh approach. I think he’ll continue to wow us with his work for quite a while.

I love that every song Cheskino does is different too, from beautiful ballads to energetic pop. There are very few people who can do this, who are this versatile. His ability to recreate the recorded music of world class stars, testifies to a refinement of his skills and talent. I can’t wait to see what he does next.

And I would love for ‘next’ to be some original material. Though there certainly is no rush, as at the age of 11, Cheskino has all the time in the world to carefully choose his direction, before launching his own professional career. It’s just that I’m so impatient to see how far he will eventually go, and how quickly it will take him to get there!
