Video: Iranian Girl, 13, Does Great Job Singing Adele's 'Someone Like You'

By Robert Paul Reyes

It seems that every teen girl with a web cam has recorded her own version of one of Adele`s hits and posted it on YouTube. Most of these videos are viewed only by the aspiring singer`s circle of friends and family, but a few of them have gone viral garnering millions of hits.


One of Adele wannabes videos that has gone viral is by "Tara" a 13-year-old Iranian girl. In Iran Western music is considered decadent, and women aren`t allowed to sing in public.

An American mom will smile if she discovered that her young daughter posted a music video on YouTube. But in the Persian country it takes courage for a young girl to sing a Western pop song, and post it on the Internet. It`s considered an act of rebellion and defiance against the mullahs that run the country.

Let`s hope Tara doesn`t discover Lady Gaga, she may be hauled off to prison is she sings one of the controversial diva`s songs.

Tara only started singing a year ago, but she does a terrific job of interpreting Adele.
