According to Bobby's caption, his son did the song without using a teleprompter but his remarkable memory. The proud father tagged the song as "YouCanBeABCs" and revealed that Sam wrote the lyrics with him.
The young boy showcased his memory skills when he recited the 39 books of the Old Testament in the Bible for Fox's Amy Speropoulos. Surprisingly, Sam doesn't want to become a rapper but "an architect, governor, or president."
According to his mother, Sam began reading at age 2 and the ABC song was written by her husband and son not for the joy of going viral but as a means of teaching the six-year-old about various careers.
"Just don’t be a zombie, don’t let the world pass you by."

His message was widely received by adults and children alike. From being an architect to a truck mechanic, the six-year-old told the world nothing was too small.
Sam hails from Memphis, Tennessee and he's a first-grader. He enjoys playing with Lego, which fuels his passion for building and his ambition to become an architect.
According to his mother, the six-year-old doesn't watch TV except on Fridays and spends his time doing "creative things." His father disclosed in an interview that he wanted his son to learn about the various careers available because that knowledge would help not only Sam but other kids to improve academically once they had a goal to achieve.
