This girl has got skills.

Listen to Molly Kate Kestner, a high school senior from Minnesota, perform an original song, “His Daughter.”

With a voice that shows more range than those of a lot of famous singers today, Kestner sings about a girl abandoned by her alcoholic father who’s looking for love in the wrong places, but eventually creates a family of her own.
