Mormon missionary beatboxes at Oregon farmer’s market
First Published Sep 21 2013 09:04 am • Last Updated Sep 21 2013 09:10 am

We already know Mormon missionaries can dunk. Apparently, they beatbox too.

Late last week, the McMinnville Downtown Association posted the video above to Youtube. Titled "Mormon Missionary Beatboxer at McMinnville Farmers Market," it apparently depicts Elder Parker Kane beatboxing in the small Oregon city.

According to an earlier video, in which he audition for the TV show "America’s Got Talent," Kane is from Pocatello Idaho, beatboxing is his favorite thing in the world and he wants to make a career out of his talent.

Kane also isn’t a novice, if his Youtube channel is any indication; he has posted more than 20 videos of himself — presumably pre-mission — doing covers, rapping and performing.

After only a week online, the video of Kane at the farmer’s market has nearly 20,000 views. Among the comments, one Youtube user also mentioned getting a "personal concert" from Kane and his companion during a recent dinner appointment. The commentor also reveals that Kane can do eight different sounds at once.
