JONESBORO, ARK. (WVUE) - This will give you goose bumps.

An 11-year-old Arkansas student wowed the audience Wednesday at a school talent show with his stunning rendition of the notoriously difficult song that Whitney Houston is famous for, “I Will Always Love You.” (The song was written and first sung by Dolly Parton.)

Mykel Lewis is a fifth grader at University Heights Intermediate School. As he approached the chorus where the notes are high and the runs are complex, the audience was already on its feet and applauding, according to our sister station, KAIT.

According to school officials, Mykel wants to be on "America's Got Talent" and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

If this performance is any indication, he's well on his way.
