According to the information below saying this is Little Richard, can anyone confirm or deny the statement?
This is fabulous!
FOR ALL OF YOU LITTLE RICHARD FANS OUT THERE, THIS WILL BLOW YOUR SOCKS OFF JUST WATCHING HOW HIS TALENT SHOWED THROUGH AT SUCH AN EARLY AGE.
This is amazing to see. It's Richard Wayne Penniman (aka Little Richard) about fifteen years before "Tutti Frutti, oh, Rudy...." If you're familiar with early period Beatles, you'll know that McCartney was heavily influenced by Little Richard.

Here is some very rare footage of "Little Richard" as a child, when he was just starting out in the music biz' ... from some movie with Van Johnson.
