Is Molly Kate Kestner, 18, the American Adele? Video
"When 18-year-old Molly Kate Kestner first started putting videos of herself singing on YouTube, it was mainly as a way to stay in touch with friends and family. Now, thanks to an original song that`s gone viral, she`s on her way to becoming an international sensation.
It`s easy to see why - listen to those pipes! Those vocals were enough to get Kestner attention from celebrities, national media and record labels.
The song really went viral when `Star Trek` star George Takei shared it on his Facebook page, saying: Has America found its young Adele? I`m nearly breathless from listening."
Oh My! George Takei is spot on; Molly Kate Kestner is the American Adele. We desperately need an American version of Adele to counter the likes of Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, BeyoncÃ©, and Nicki Minaj. Enough with the shameless publicity stunts, auto-tuned ditties, and lyrics that glorify materialism, controlled substances, and stupidity, it`s time for talent to rise to the forefront.
As talented and gifted as Adele may be, she can`t save the music industry by herself; we need to promote talented young singers like Molly Kate Kestner.
I just had a horrible thought: In a few years record company honchos will have Molly twerking, flashing Illuminati signs and " accidentally" flashing her nether regions.
Oh God, let`s hope Molly remains artistically pure like Adele.
Listen to Kestner`s song, I guarantee you will buy her albums when they are released.
