Wunderkind Musician Nandi Bushell Pays Tribute to Charlie Watts, Playing All of the Tracks on “Gimme Shelter”

We’ve featured 11-year-old Nandi Bushell here before. Perhaps you’ll recall her epic drum battle with Dave Grohl. Today she’s back, paying tribute to Charlie Watts and performing the individual tracks on the Stones’ “Gimme Shelter.” First comes the guitar; then the bass, percussion and vocals; and next the drums–all the while she’s having fun. And you will too. Enjoy.
