The cover of Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel" was originally uploaded to YouTube in June 2012, but is going viral again two years later.

Some people may already be aware of Kawehi thanks to her chilling cover of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box".

She is known for using Kickstarter to fund her musical projects, receiving tens of thousands of dollars from her fans.
