VIDEO OF THE DAY: Rhythm Doesn't Require Hands

Cornel Hrisca-Munn, 20, was born with no forearms and a damaged right leg, and was expected to live only a few days when he was abandoned at a Romanian Orphanage. After being adopted by a British couple, he became a practiced swimmer and taught himself to drum.

His YouTube videos, including versions of songs by Red Hot Chili Peppers and Coldplay, have reached over 30,000 views in a matter of days. And on top of all that, he was a runner-up in a national drumming competition and is also a member of the jazz orchestra of Oxford, where he is studying philosophy and theology.

Below you can watch Cornel's cover of DJ Fresh & Rita Ora's 'Hot Right Now':
