Nandi Bushell is an 11-year-old from South Africa who has been a social media star for the past 12 months for her incredible drumming skills that have caught the eye of many musicians including Questlove, Lenny Kravitz, and, Dave Grohl.

In August 2020, Bushell performed a cover of "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters, and she challenged Grohl to a drum-off. Grohl responded with his own performance of "Dead End Friends" by Them Crooked Vultures. Grohl challenged Bushell to give it a go. She, in turn, responded back by matching his performance on the same song, after which Grohl conceded defeat to her, and promised that when the Foo Fighters tour in her home town she can join them on stage.

And finally, her dream came true last week when she joined her hero's to perform drums on the song 'Everlong'.

Nandi Bushell has such an amazing talent and she is going to be one to watch in the future.
