Like Canadian star Justin Bieber, Heather Russell began posting videos on youtube at a very young age. Unlike the Biebs, this songbird consistently came with originals! She is just 9 years old in this video.
With the help of her musical papa James Russell, Heather has posted dozens of stellar performances to the web.
Here’s Heather singing Alicia Keys’ Girl on Fire with the emotional commitment of a performer more than twice her age.
Both lyrically and musically, Heather is far beyond her years. This is one of Heather’s more recent videos. Please remember she is JUST 12! Mindblowing!
