This is the latest song he composed himself. I am very proud of him! He has tons of original songs he composed by himself since he was around 16 years old. He had 2 years of unfinished degree in conservatory of music from University of Santo Tomas when we petitioned them back from the Philippines last year. While he is presently working full-time with Zappos.Com, he is contemplating whether to continue his music degree here in the US or maybe yet shift to another course. My husband and I are just waiting for him to make up his mind.

I just hope you like this clip he created.
As a proud Mom, all I wish for my son is for him to become sucessful in whatever field he decides to master and shine perhaps like his own idol, John Mayer someday.

Thanks a lot, Ron. Yes indeed! I am very proud of him.
And I posted this here because you'll never know. Wishfully, some talent scout could spot him here at WOF. biggrin.gif

Thanks Marekoy. I myself wonder how could he be endowed with such an amazing talent while I passed out snoring loud on my pillows during the time God showered gift of music on earth. LOL
You can see more of his clips at YouTube by searching for JIREH LIM.

Thanks Flor.
Jack Johnson? Never heard of him that I had to google him at YouTube. At once, I thought it was like Jackson 5 or something. biggrin.gif
Yeah, I agree. JJohnson is very good.

Great music. If you check out "Better Together" by Jack Johnson you will see how people can make that comparison. He has a bit of the John Mayer technique with playing alot of the bass notes with his thumb. He is a talented kid and you should be proud.

Thank you all guys for your kind words. I really really appreciate all your compliments in favor of my son Jireh.
Again, let me share here with you another clip taken tonight from Fender's Den Radio Show here in Louisville featuring my very handsome and talented son Jireh.
Next thing you know, I will be managing his career here in the US. biggrin.gif
I swear when American Idol comes by Louisville sometime soon, I will not audition but Jireh alone. I will just stand up by his side as his great sidekick.

I am glad you noticed it too. I am amazed how my son Jireh does it. I know only how to chat on computers and focus the webcam. LOL.

Jireh is contemplating on shifting to Computer Graphic Design when he goes back to college here in the US. I wish he would just continue music here since he already had 2 years in conservatory of music from UST. But my husband is strongly suggesting that I should not influence my son on this issue. My husband thinks it would be best for all our children to make their own decisions.
