Five-year-old Sarah Redden has secured a burgeoning fan base after releasing a rap tribute to NFL star Colin Kaepernick.
Sarah Redden from Dayton, Ohio, posted a YouTube video titled Kaepernicking on December 14 and to date it has scored more than 300,000 hits.
In the recording the blonde youngster is seen imitating the San Francisco 49ers quarterback dressed in a number 7 shirt with faux tattoos covering her upper arms.
“Wearing No 7 like Colin Kaep, talking Super Bowl wins, he’s bringing them back,” Sarah Redden raps.
Talking about what inspired the song, she told CBS13: “I just like singing and I just like making songs.
“The 49ers and the Steelers have always been my favorite teams.”
According to Sarah Redden, she wrote the lyrics and produced the video with the help of her brother.
She cites the U.S. rapper Wiz Khalifa as one of her musical inspirations.
After watching Sarah Redden’s Kaepernicking recording, one viewer wrote: “This little girl is a STAR! The backward hat, tats, spittin rhymes. So cute!”
While another added: “Oh my gosh this is like the most cutest thing ever! I can’t help but just smile all the way through. She knows more about football than I do.”
NFL Fox also gave the rap song its seal of approval, and Sarah Redden revealed today via Twitter that the TV network will be including it in the 49ers pregame show on December 23.
This week Colin Kaepernick was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week, after becoming the third quarterback in history to throw four touchdown passes in a game.
Sarah Redden said she thinks “he’s a great football player”, and she enjoys watching him on TV.
Sarah Redden’s next rap video Niner Nation is set to come out in January.
