Tom Morello's Surprise Gift to 10-Year-Old Nandi

25 Jun 2020

Earlier this month, talented 10-year-old musician Nandi Bushell posted a video playing a cover of "Guerilla Radio" in support of Black Lives Matter. See below the viral clip:

At the time he praised her amazing talent on social media but this week went a step further and surprised her with a brand new Tom Morello "Soul Power" Fender Stratocaster and a video message to her saying:

"I'd like you to have this guitar as a gift from me to you because you rock so great," Morello says in a video message. "And to see someone rocking so great who is so young, it really gives me hope for the future. I didn't start playing guitar until I was 17 years old, so you are way, super-far ahead of me, and I look forward to hearing a lot more of your music in the future. You've got a lot of soul, and here's a little Soul Power to go with it. Keep it up!"

See the moment she received her guitar here:
