Nandi Bushell is a certified bad***. The 10-year-old has wowed us with her drumming skills time and time again, and apparently she's also really good at playing the guitar and bass, too.
The musical prodigy showed support for the Black Lives Matter movement over the weekend with an epic cover of Rage Against The Machine's "Guerilla Radio," where she plays all three instruments, including Tom Morello's "Soul Power" guitar, flawlessly.
"Solidarity in the Fight to End Racism! #fightracism #blacklivesmatter #enoughisenough." the Twitter caption reads. "This song is one of Nandis favourite songs. Nandi has loved @RATM since she was a baby."
After receiving some "All Lives Matter" replies, her account, which is monitored by her parents, shared another message: "With Love and Respect to all, it’s #BlackLivesMatte. All life is equally beautiful and important. Replying with ‘All Lives Matter’ disregards the message and IS the problem. Acknowledge #BlackLivesMatter"
The RATM guitarist saw the performance and congratulated Nandi on a job well done. "Well now we are on the right track," he tweeted.

Morello is not one to shy away from politics and has been quite vocal about the recent protests erupting in the wake of George Floyd's unnecessary death at the hands of Minneapolis police officers.
