Makena, a two-year-old girl from Canada, puts her heart and soul into a beautiful rendition of the Adele’s first number one hit Someone Like You and caused a sensation on YouTube.
The track from Adele’s second album, 21, cemented her status as a superstar, and it looks set to do the same for her young fan.
Over 1,700,000 people have watched Makena singing along to the song since the video was uploaded by her mother Heather Fedorick two weeks ago.
One user from the Czech Republic wrote: “She is so cute, when I watch her singing, I think that life is beautiful.”
Another added: “I think 20 terrorists put down their weapons and bombs after watching this video.”
Makena shows an impressive grasp of the lyrics to the hit about the end of 23-year-old Adele’s relationship with an unnamed ex-boyfriend.
It is, however, doubtful that at this stage she fully understands the meaning of the heartbreaking song, whose chorus runs: “Never mind I’ll find/ Someone like you / I wish nothing but the best for you, too / Don’t forget me, I begged, I remember you said / Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead.”
In Makena’s hands, the soulful song takes on a different aspect, and the tragic words become charmingly funny sung in the toddler’s childish lisp.
Makena’s mother can be heard providing a little help when her daughter falters, but the toddler still shows skill beyond her years as she belts out the track.
With her talent for mumbling the words when she gets a little stuck, the blonde-haired toddler could compete with some of the biggest stars in the business.
Makena’s new fans will be hoping this is not the last we see of the brilliant young starlet.
