  1. Sheku Kanneh- Mason, 19yr old cellist, is one of a family of 7 brilliant musical prodigies!
    He won the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year!
    They ALL play a Stringed instrument + the piano and have their own Chamber group.

  2. Loved his music, but his socks were amazing tooπŸ˜‚

  3. His name is Sheku Kanneh-Mason if anyone is wondering

  4. He played so beautifully at the wedding!! His performance was my favorite part of the Music, along with that of the Choir!!

  5. His performance was my favorite part of the wedding!

  6. Great performance good musician! I find it interesting that there was black musician black preacher didn't see the whole wedding but it looks like some statements are being made there buy Merkel

  7. Amazing work. Every note is beautiful. Best wishes for the performance at the Royal Wedding. πŸ’–πŸ’«πŸŒŸβœ¨πŸŽΆπŸŽ΅πŸŽΌπŸŽ»πŸ‘‘πŸ‘ΈπŸ’‚

  8. There was a brilliant documentary on this incredible family a year or two ago. They are a whole talented bunch with wonderful supportive parents.

  9. So... talented, skillful, classical cellists come in shades of dark brown... Nice for the world to know that. β™‘β˜†

  10. This was my favourite interlude in the wedding ceremony. Beautifully played with deep feeling! I look forward to hearing more of Sheku Kanneh-Mason!

  11. I didn't hear much of the music, our Belgian commentators kept talking during every musical piece about the favourite flowers of Diana and Meghan ….……… πŸ˜”

  12. Wonderful cellist. Totally natural and unaffected. Pity the BBC gave the incorrect title of his first piece. Definitely not by Faure! That came later.

  13. I loved his music at the wedding and was most impressed. I watched ITV and he came and did an interview with the presenters... then they cut to adverts and lo and behold there was an advert for his new download album which irritated me so I switched off and went to classic FM, only to find another advert for his album, I don't know why he didn't wear the adverts on his socks and shoes at the wedding! Now I'm put off by him as I see him as a marketeer and not an up and coming musician.

  14. I have been watching the brilliant career of this young cellist for several years ~ and so applaud the choice to feature him today.

  15. He is awesome. Made me think of a young musician killed recently in the states. Draylen Mason, only 17 and very gifted. How bloody sad.

  16. What a pity that Charles, Camilla and William were so rude and talked through a beautiful cello solo. Not very supportive of a very talented 19 year old.

  17. Molly Rife, did you turn down the royal wedding gig?? I feel like they would’ve asked you before this guy. But his socks were on point.

  18. What a great lad, and a great talent! I was also blown away by the delightful Maxim Calver, finalist in this year’s BBCYM competition.

  19. He was amazing! Of course the bride & groom were the stars but this cellist was up there. I was in awe...his playing was beautiful β­οΈπŸ‘‘πŸŽ©πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

  20. How good that he was at this special occasion - I recall hearing him at the BBC Young musician of the Year and was so pleased that he did win that.

  21. Tristan Driessen I hope you have had a chance to hear this cellist. He played at the Royal wedding today.. So beautiful
