NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. -- Some are calling him the next Justin Bieber! A local singer stole the hearts of young girls performing at a charity kids triathlon Sunday.

He is just 11 years old, but Dalton Cyr already has quite the stage presence.

"I try to entertain people as much as I can," he said.

Kids lined up to get signed copies of his CD at the BFAS Kids Triathlon in Neptune Beach Sunday afternoon.

"I do perform for places like Wolfson Children's Hospital and places like that for kids and charity," Dalton said.

The Jacksonville Beach native does covers and writes his own songs. He even plays the guitar, drums, and piano. Plus, he has some pretty good dance moves. It's no wonder fans call him the next Justin Bieber. But Dalton's influences are a bit more mature.

"Music idol? John Mayer!" he said.

He will be releasing an 11-song album this summer while going on tour with other upcoming artists.

"I'm doing around 16 shows, 8, days, and it's gonna be a blast! It's gonna be tiring but it's gonna be a blast!" Dalton said.

But will he reach Bieber status?

"I'm trying!"

Something tells us it won't take long. Dalton already has a big Youtube following and lots of fans on Facebook.

"Thank you so much. You guys are amazing. I love you." Dalton said to his fans.
