An 11-year-old little girl, Merideth Puckett, is taking YouTube by storm with her rendition of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep.” The video shows the little girl standing in a kitchen belting out the song as her friend records with her cellphone. The video has already been viewed over 829,000 times since the time of this posting, and has left many asking for more.
The video was uploaded on April 7 and shows the little girl in a kitchen belting out one of her favorite songs, “Rolling In The Deep” by Adele. Merideth says the video was recorded on the spur of the moment by a friend and was posted to Facebook. After the posting, the video went viral in just 24 hours so Merideth decided to upload the video to YouTube as well.
Many people tell the child she should try out for X-Factor or America’s Got Talent, as her voice is incredibly strong and could be even better with a little bit of training. Some wondered if the video had been auto-tuned, but Merideth’s friends came to her defense and say it sounds exactly the same in person. Others who do not personally know the girl but have seen her perform at local festivals claim her voice in the video is accurate. In fact, other videos of Merideth have surfaced on YouTube and it seems that she prefers Adele, as she covers her songs frequently.
What do you think of the 11-year-old girl’s voice? Could she be the next Adele with a little bit of training?
