A seven-year-old ‘little drummer girl’ has been tipped for stardom after videos of her playing went viral – earning her fans including MC Hammer and Stormzy.
Clips of Geneva Jordan performing famous tunes with ease have been watched by thousands after they were posted online by her proud parents.
The talented schoolgirl took up the instrument to follow in the footsteps of her dad Eugene Jordan, 31, who plays at his local church.
She began by hitting drumsticks on pillows and chairs but got her own kit for her birthday in December and now practises for an hour every day.
The curly-haired cutie – whose idol is Michael Jackson – also films a video a week of her covering her favourite song of the moment.
The clips have made turned her into an internet sensation – with musicians including MC Hammer sharing them with their millions of followers.
She also counts British grime artist Stormzy, ‘American Girl’ singer Estelle and Ariana Grande’s drummer Aaron Spears as fans after they praised her online.
MC Hammer wrote: “She’s amazing with excellent timing and soulfulness. Bright musical future,” while Stormzy said: “Yes queen show them.”
Proud dad Eugene, a writer of Luton, Beds., who’s been playing the drums since he was six, said: “I can never stop smiling when Geneva is playing the drums.
“I think she’s really good and super cute but I’m biased. People just see her enthusiasm and that she has a feel for the groove.
“It’s uncommon in a seven year old, especially a little girl. It’s something you can’t teach.
“Geneva absolutely loves music. There isn’t a minute in the day goes by when we aren’t listening to something.
“My wife and I decided to get her a drum kit for her birthday because she was always trying to play the drums with me at church.
“She would try to hit the snare when I wasn’t looking or climb onto the stage.
“Now she practises pretty much every day and when she’s not playing, she will be drumming her fingers on the dinner table or on her legs in the car.
“We’ve been filming her since she was little but I’ve been blown away by the reaction to her cover videos.
“We tag the artists in them, but you never really think these megastars are going to reach out and speak to a seven year old. It really encourages her.”
Geneva, who is home-schooled by mum Keysha, 32, has covered artists including Estelle, Stormzy and Lauryn Hill and also vlogs weekly.
She’s modelled for Morrison’s, Monsoon and Mothercare and dreams of starting a girl band, starring in movies and campaigning for human rights.
The bright youngster said: “Ever since I was younger I wanted to be on stage and on the drums and when my parents saw that they got me a drum kit.
“I like playing the drums because I get to exercise my wrists and experience celebrities reposting my videos.
“I feel awesome when I play. I’ve been playing for six or seven months and I think I’m doing well so far. Practice makes perfect.”
