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.
The not-so-subtle religious undertones can be a bit much for the non-church going crowd, but otherwise the song is filled with sweet, hopeful sentiments.
Kestner’s talents in both singing and songwriting will surely take her far — this can’t be the last we see of this YouTube phenom, who has garnered over 170,000 views on this song alone already.
