Cornel Hrisca-Munn, Disabled Drummer, Covers 'Hot Right Now' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Viral video sensations are a dime a dozen, but Cornel Hrisca-Munn is different.

The Romanian drummer was born with "no forearms and a severely deformed right leg," according to the Telegraph. He was given days to live by doctors and put in an orphanage.

But Hrisca-Munn beat the odds and ended up going to Keble College in Oxford where he studied philosophy and theology.

"I don't let my physical disability stand in my way," he told The Telegraph. "I always find solutions to what I cannot do. I'm a fighter."

That is blatantly apparent in Hrisca-Munn's cover of "Hot Right Now" by DJ Fresh and Rita Ora.

"I'm a disabled drummer and thought I would give youtube a go!" Hrisca-Munn writes in the video description.

The clip has earned the young musician and scholar a ton of praise from Internet kingmakers.

Gawker runs down a list of Hrisca-Munn's accomplishments and asks, "What have you done today?"

The Daily What says "This won’t be the last we see of him."

And Viral Videos raves, "He calls himself a 'disabled drummer,' but all we see is a rock star!"

Drum on, good sir.
