Watch: Teenage Girl Crushes Otis Redding Song – Leaves AGT Judges Gobsmacked

Who would have thought anyone her age would even KNOW an Otis Redding tune… let alone belt one out like this?

If you weren’t looking at the screen, you’d never believe it was a thirteen-year-old white girl singing with soul like this.

She’s got the moves to back it up, too!

You’d never guess that she was the same shy little girl that answered the softball questions the judges gave her to help her loosen up.

It’s not the polished twenty-somethings who are already singing and making their way in life that really drive the staying-power of shows like this one. Not at all.

It’s the unlikely heroes. The retirees, the kids, the folks who blow us away because we would never in a thousand years guessed that they had ‘THAT’ in them.

Good luck on the show, Courtney Hadwin, but in our books, you’re already a winner.

And we’re pretty sure we’ll be seeing more from you in the future.

Whether you’re young or old, people, let her example serve as a challenge to chase your dreams.

Here’s a shirt for real men (and women, too):

Why be average? It’s so overrated.

Everyone does that.

You need to Do Epic Sh-t.

Raising Righteous & Rowdy Girls

In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
