We can’t stop listening to this 12-year-old crooner sing one of the summer’s hottest songs!

Ronan Parke, 12, may not have won Britain’s Got Talent, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a bright future ahead of him — does the name Susan Boyle ring a bell? Watch the video below to see why Ronan’s being hailed as the “British Bieber!”

Controversy erupted earlier this summer when rumors swirled that Simon Cowell had found Ronan two years ago and has been grooming him for stardom since. Ronan’s mother, Maggie told BBC Radio Norfolk, “It’s laughable and it couldn’t be further from the truth. There’s no foundation in it whatsoever.”

The reality show runner up posted an acoustic cover of Lady Gaga‘s latest single “The Edge of Glory” last week and it’s already racked up over 50,000 views! His debut CD comes out on October 24 and we’ll definitely be keeping an eye on him!
