This is Ode To…, a weekly column where we share the stuff we’re really into in hopes that you’ll be really into it, too.
It always warms my heart to see a fiercely fearless kid. Take, for example, Staten Harry, an incredible lip-sync assassin in-the-making and Lady Gaga super fan who loves to upload videos of himself lip syncing to Mother Monster.
Staten Harry became an internet sensation after he started uploading his performances to Twitter, and his amazing lip-sync skills and positive aura have earned him thousands of fans.
Take a look at his stellar lip sync of Gaga’s “Born This Way.”
Hey @LadyGagaUpdated I have made a fun little video for Gaga/ all of you monsters to see to brighten your day and make you smile! I would love it so much if you would retweet it please! I pinned it to my profile! I really hope Gaga sees it! Thank you hugs and paws up! 😘💖💕🦄🦄 pic.twitter.com/ZLKTfEN6xQ

And here he is singing “Hair.”
And of course there’s a video of him lip-syncing to “Bad Romance.”
This child literally radiates positivity, and I can’t help but smile whenever I watch his videos.
Staten Harry currently has a follower count of more than 15,000 on his Twitter page, so he’s doing pretty well for himself so far. He’ll often tag icons like RuPaul, Gaga, and tons of Gaga fan accounts in the tweets accompanying his videos. This child is driven, and we could all take a lesson from him on personal branding.

His most popular upload is a video of his lip-sync to “Alejandro,” which incidentally inspired a kind of meme. There’s a point in the video where he says, “Everyone better be jumping,” while waving his hand in the air, and it’s somehow become pure meme gold.
Is there anything Staten Harry can’t do?
everyone better be jumping!!!

Staten Harry’s videos serve as a sweet reminder that we should all let our inner lip-sync queen out once in a while. I 1,000 percent stan.
