Where would we be without the sound of music? Listening to an old favorite on the radio is enough to take the edge off a tough day. Speaking of old favorites, do you find yourself singing along to a timeless classic every once in a while? If so, you have to meet this 11-year-old singer who swept us off our feet with her rendition of Simon and Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence.
The celebrated American folk rock duo Simon and Garfunkel are responsible for creating a variety of timeless hits. These include Sound of Silence, Bridge Over Troubled Water, and Mrs. Robinson, to name a few. Recreating these classics comes with its fair share of risks for any present-day singer. After all, it’s natural for the audience to be skeptical about your ability to do justice to these unforgettable, even hauntingly beautiful melodies. But a pint-sized soprano named Jadyn Rylee was gutsy enough to rise to the challenge. Not only that, we guarantee that she will blow your mind!
Jadyn might just be 11 years old, but her talent knows no bounds. A YouTube video of the young Canadian singing Sound of Silence manages to capture her amazing range. She begins with soft, sweet tones, gradually injecting the song with emotions and expressions. Joining Jadyn in the awe-inspiring performance is Sina, a young drummer who also looks like she has a promising future ahead of her!
