This isn't the first time Elder Parker Kane has showcased his talent on YouTube, however. The young man has a channel of his own called PK elitebeats with 21 videos featuring his beatboxing skill. According to his channel, Kane competed in the Pocatello Fair Talent Idol Competition in 2010 and 2011, where he won the grand prize in the 2010 competition. Kane also has created his own profile on Mormon.org.

Kane's most recent video during his LDS mission in Oregon has already received more than 6,000 views with some comments expressing hopes that his talent will help while serving a mission.
