Dominic Scott Kay (born May 6, 1996[1]) is an American child actor and singer. He was born in Los Angeles, California, the son of musician and actor Scott Kay, a long-running drummer for The Commodores.

He is probably best known for his cameo appearance in the Easter egg scene of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End as the son of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). He is also known as the voice of Wilbur in Charlotte's Web and Adam in Air Buddies.

He directed, wrote and starred in a short film called Saving Angelo,[1] a story based on the true events of an abandoned dog left for dead on the side of the road that he and his family rescued in 2003. He also wrote and directed another short film, Grandpa's Cabin.[1]

He is very fond of animals and rescues them with his parents.[1] Kay currently serves as a StarPower Ambassador for Starlight Children's Foundation.[2] In 2003, he established the band "Wisdom" when he was 7 and is its lead singer.[citation needed]

The Voice

Kay appeared on season five of the American edition of The Voice, accompanied by his father who had taken a break from the Commodores tour to encourage him. In the blind auditions, Kay sang "Easy", a Commodores song, but did not get any of the judges to turn their chairs around, although they generally praised his singing.
