One lucky break, given by Youtube, for one lucky girl….Once again it’s a proof, if you’re destined for something great, put yourself out there, there’s so many ways to do it nowadays… and one day that something great will happen=)
Just randomly clicked on a video on youtube and really liked the song “Boy”. Went into deeper research about the singer since I liked her voice a lot…Turns out, this girl was a persistent Youtube uploader of her singing covers of other songs, until one day she was noticed by Ed Sheeran. She does look like a star, her voice is really beautiful and I am glad I got the chance to notice her too..So meet Nina Nesbitt=)
