10 year-old Charlie Green sings "The Summer Wind"

This clip is from Britain's Got Talent. Initially I thought it was corny with all the build-up but after a couple verses you realize he has a definite grasp of the song. The skat interlude is unnecessary but overall I think this performance bodes well for the survival of Sinatra's music well into the next generation and beyond.
