Cute Kids Singing Country Songs: Blake Shelton, ‘Sangria’
You don't have to be legally able to drink sangria to sing your own version of the Blake Shelton hit. Michael Ryan Mullins can't order his own pitcher of the sweet Spanish concoction, but he sure can pour his heart into this YouTube cover.
The young man is a big country music fan with an even bigger gift. He frequently covers country songs old and new — including Rhett Akins' "That Ain't My Truck," Chris Young's "I'm Comin' Over," Luke Bryan's "Play It Again" — and this Shelton rendition. It's usually just him an his acoustic guitar (with an occasional change of scenery, shooting from his living room), and that's really all he needs. Here, the teenager plays the chords on his guitar before bringing his beautiful deep voice in to help. Mullins sings with emotion in every word, closing his eyes as he belts out the sexy song.
