Just 11 years old, two musical friends sing an astounding duet

Jadyn Rylee is not your average 11 year-old. The Toronto native has an amazing talent for music and a phenomenal singing voice. Little wonder, then, that her music videos have already made her a YouTube star. She and a friend recently teamed up to record a stunning new song.

She certainly got an early start. “My parents tell me that I started to sing as soon as I learned how to talk. At the age of three I learned the hit song by Miley Cyrus called ‘The Climb.’ That was when my family first realized that this might be something that one day I would be good at.” Jadyn soon developed a real passion for music and was already working with a professional vocal coach by the time she was six. The coaching not only helped her realize her artistic potential, but also gave her the confidence she needed to perform in front of an audience.

Last summer, Jaydn met Brayden Ryle (also an 11 year-old aspiring musician) and the two became fast friends thanks to their shared enthusiasm for music. He’s a specialist in rap and dance music and also plays the piano. Music would seem to run in his family: his father is singer / songwriter Curt Ryle.

You’ll see and hear Jaydn and Brayden’s recording if “Only You” in the video posted below. Showing off her versatility, Jaydn sings in a more tender than usual style. Brayden’s rap adds an interesting counterpoint. As the introduction to the video says, “This song can be heard in many ways but for Jadyn and Brayden it signified the immediate and instantly strong friendship that they developed. Jadyn wears her heart on her sleeve and so its no surprise that she feels right at home singing with a new friend.”
