We have been impressed with 11-year-old child prodigy Nandi Bushell for quite a while now, and it's always great to see other artists share in the praise for this young whippersnapper. This time, it's Linkin Park giving her a nod of approval.
Nandi exploded into the mainstream sphere last year after Dave Grohl challenged her to a virtual drum-off. It even lead to a fawning profile in the New York Times, a residency at Cartoon Network, and a ton of praise. Nandi's musical journey is ever-evolving and she had just discovered Linkin Park.
In posting her new cover, she writes “I discovered Linkin Park this week! So many great songs! So this is #numetal! I like the keyboards and the DJ scratching. #chesterbennington had such an incredible voice. He sang with real #power. Loving your work Rob Bourdon, Brad Delson, Joe Hahn, Dave Farrell, Mike Shinoda #linkinpark #linkinparkfans #metal #rock #heavymetal “
The official Linkin Park account responded "Wow, this is awesome." We tend to agree.
