Video: "Jacob and The Guitar Man" goes viral
Busker Tyler Gregory has joined the pantheon of musicians who've catapulted to fame, thanks to YouTube.
It came as a result of an autistic boy named Jacob's response to him playing performing The Midnight Special on a street in Lawrence, Kansas.

On his website, Gregory wrote that he was very surprised by the response to the video.
"I didn't know the internet was so powerful and could connect to people so much!" he stated.
He added that he felt so much energy coming from Jacob that it brought tears to his eyes as he played.
"Honestly, a feeling that came from my toes all the way up my body and surrounded me," Gregory wrote. "I can't begin to explain it. I want to try to put it into words, but there is no way to tell how powerful his energy felt."
