Katy Perry might have released the most self-motivating track to date with “Roar” and one of her Katykats has taken the message to heart to be brave and tackle anything in your way.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation recently gave a little girl the chance to cover the song, but not just record the audio; she got the opportunity to make her own music video for it. Five-year-old Addy suffers from stage VI cancer and her fantasy was to be come a pop star for a day. The foundation, which help children suffering from cancer fulfill their dreams, gave Addy her wish and for one shinning day, she was a pop star and embodied the message of the song.
Brand New have been taking some cues from Bruce Springsteen and have begun to cover some tracks during their sets on their current tour.
During their show in London last week, the band played “The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot” from Deja Entendu when they decided to do something a little different by including covers of Coldplay’s “Yellow” and Modest Mouse’s “Trailer Trash.”
Like London, the band did the same things at their show last night (April 18) in Manchester, but rather than including it as a live mix to one of their own songs, they went on to cover Nine Inch Nails’ “Wish” on its own. Watch the fan shot video below and tell us if there’s a song in your opinion that the band should cover in the future.
Brand New are currently on tour in Europe, scheduled to perform in Germany, England, and Italy followed by a touring stint in North America for selected stops in the United States and Canada.
