When blues legend B.B. King was still suffering from diabetes-related health issues in a hospice, 10-year-old guitarist Toby Lee wanted to wish his musical hero a safe and easy recovery. To do so, he made this video of himself playing an incredible instrumental version of King’s “The Thrill Is Gone.”

What makes the little musical prodigy’s tribute even better is how he’s wearing the most adorable tiger onesie.


Sadly, B.B. King died on May 14 at age 89. Since making this video for King back in April, though, Toby has had sponsorship offers and even received a personal message from Rita King Washington, one of B.B. King’s daughters. He is truly on his way to following in his hero’s footsteps.
