Why do certain musicians shine more than others, regardless of how many hours they practice? Maybe they're just born with it. Introducing violin virtuoso, David Garrett from Germany, who seems to possess superhuman capabilities. On December 20, 2008, this long-tressed prodigy played "Flight of the Bumblebee" at the lightning speed of 1 minute and 5.26 seconds on live television.

Garrett's life path was set in stone at the age of four when his brother was given a violin. Garrett's interest and talent quickly overtook his brother's and he began lessons as well. Soon he was performing all over Europe. Eventually, people began to notice his undeniable talent. As a sign of how much Garrett moved his audiences, German president, Richard von Weizsäcker, gave Garrett his first Stradivarius after hearing him perform at 11 years of age. By 1999, Garrett had attended the Julliard School in New York, after having performed with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra. He's since released several albums that establish his place as a crossover classic musician with his own contemporary compositions, as well as covers of rock songs like Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
