While Nandi Bushell awaits Dave Grohl's response to their epic drum battle, the 10-year-old musical prodigy switched gears and posted a new cover video, taking on the drum part of Coldplay's 2005 hit, "Fix You."
"I hope this will bring a smile to your face today. We always have #music!" the viral sensation tweeted alongside her latest performance video. "I really like this song called #fixyou by @coldplay. The buildup at the end really get me flowing! With #love and #respect to you all, have an #awesome day"
Coldplay's drummer Will Champion personally responded to Bushell and shared her video on the band's social platforms. "This put a HUGE smile on my face, Nandi," he wrote. "Absolutely brilliant. Love WC X"
As if the exchange couldn't get any more uplifting from there, Bushell replied "Thank you so so so much @coldplay!!! SMILES across the world!"

This isn't the first time Bushell's been recognized by the artists she's covered. Over the summer, Muse responded to her rendition of "Hysteria," and Tom Morello liked her version of Rage Against The Machine's "Guerilla Radio" so much that he gifted her with a replica of his signature guitar Soul Power.
