TORONTO, Ontario -- He may be just 16, but he sings like the King, and has a date with Ellen.
Quebec teenager David Thibault has racked up millions of YouTube views with his uncanny rendition of "Blue Christmas" by Elvis Presley.
The video, recorded last week at Montreal radio station CKOI, had generated more than seven million views by early Wednesday.
Viewers who saw Thibault perform with just an acoustic guitar include talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who has invited Thibault to appear on her program on Monday.
A message on the Degeneres website says the "teenage viral sensation" will do his best version of the King during the program.
Several other videos of Thibault singing Elvis tunes are on YouTube, including "Don't Be Cruel," "My Way" and "Blue Suede Shoes."
