Singer Rob Cantor showed his exceptional vocal prowess as he performed his original song "Perfect" with 29 different celebrity impressions. His video went viral on YouTube after it amassed over 1.9 million views in just a matter of three days.
The 3.37-minute long video entitled "29 Celebrity Impressions, 1 Original Song - Rob Cantor" put together the voices of famous singers, actors and animated characters in a wide range of vocal chords. The pianist Andrew Horowitz provided the accompaniment for the singer's mind-blowing and impressive performance.
The songwriter/ impressionist sang directly into the camera as he imitated the voices of famous male singers Randy Newman, Louis Armstrong, Willie Nelson, Bono, Bilie Holiday, Frank Sinatra and Bob Dylan. He also impersonated the voices of female singer Shakira, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Cher, and Bjork.

On his Facebook page, Rob Cantor urged the Australians to watch his video which took a lot of practice and about 40 takes to come up with the perfect rendition of his original song.
"I'm absolutely floored by the response to my new video. Never in my wildest dreams did I predict it would spread like this! Insanity. I'm so glad people enjoy the clip, and I'm even happier they seem to dig the song!" said Cantor's email to Today.
