Singer Mario (age 12) was joined by Maxwell Fong (age 18) and Leland Fong (age 9) on percussion and Nina Fong (age 15) on ukelele.

The Fong Family Band covered crowd-pleasers by Neon Trees and Jason Mraz. Keep an eye out for Mario Fong on American Idol in about four or five years once he’s old enough to compete.
