A video featuring a young Ryan Gosling dancing at a Latter-day Saint talent show is buzzing around the internet.

Rossana Odar posted a video to her YouTube channel of a 11-year-old Gosling singing and dancing his way through the onstage Mormon talent show in 1991. Gosling, who was raised by Latter-day Saint parents, took the stage singing a cover of Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman” and then continued to wow the audience performing a dance routine with his sister, Mandi. 

In response to tweets about his dance moves and the viral video, Gosling tweeted:

Gosling went on to land a spot with Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse Club in 1993. Since then, Gosling has played large roles in movies like “The Notebook” and “Crazy Stupid Love.” Gosling is no longer practicing the Mormon faith.
