"In 2010, a YouTube video of a ten-year-old boy, singing "These Arms” by All-4-One, appeared on the Internet. Hundreds of thousands of people viewed the video with predictions that he would become the next Michael Jackson. Rumor had it that the boy, known only as Vicus, was from Africa's Eastern Cape. And so began an extensive search, with international record executives heading to South Africa in pursuit of this extraordinary boy. Now 19, Vicus Visser recently completed high school in Johannesburg and is pursuing a music career alongside his brother, Vincent. Don't miss the U.S. debut of this amazing young artist as he takes the world by storm."
