Ben Shapiro isn’t just a prominent conservative. He’s an amazing violinist. He was such a well-accomplished musician by the age of 12, he caught Larry King’s attention.
Before the young Shapiro even had his Bar Mitzvah, he performed at the Israeli Bonds Banquet in 1996. Unlike today, Ben didn’t even say a word. He let his violin do all of the talking. And it was magnificent!
Larry King introduced him by informing the crowd that Shapiro wanted to be the first Orthodox Rabbi to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States. He also wanted to play his violin at Carnegie Hall. Shapiro’s goals have changed a bit over the past couple of decades, but his talent on the violin is undeniable.
At this event, Shapiro performed the theme from 1993’s Schindler’s List. The song from the movie about the Holocaust is both haunting and beautiful. Ben had complete control of the difficult song playing his violin flawlessly. It’s amazing that he did this when he was only 12-years-old.
Little did we know, that young boy would grow up to become a political genius. Even though his career path changed, Ben still hasn’t put down his violin. He’s been playing the violin since he was 5-years-old and continues to do so today.
When video of him playing the song from “Game of Thrones” got out, it quickly went viral. He is a political and a musical mastermind as you can see in the video below! Of course, he had to include a few political themes in this video that is sure to make you laugh.
Amazing! The violin is a very tough instrument to learn, but Ben makes playing it look easy. Just when I thought I couldn’t be more impressed with Ben Shapiro, his violin skills blew me away!
