This is a bit thrilling. Tayla is a local girl from our local school here in Auckland. We have seen perform many times over the years and now she’s getting some viral social media cuthrough action (not sure of the vernacular) by singing this version of the Blessed Kate’s first hit single. 730,000 views is pretty good, isn’t it?
Thrilling also is playing it on the TV and then playing the original, My 9 year old daughter is now somewhat smitten by Kate Bush – she has a new fan.
And the trifecta of thrills is complete by me knowing the chap who plays the piano! Why, only last week we had a chat outside my house – he lives around the corner. My oldest daughter feeds his dog when he’s out of town.
This makes me feel a bit better about not knowing Lorde or anyone in her family despite living in the same area for nearly 20 years.
