Last year she sang Over The Rainbow at the Oscars.  Sunday, she was featured again during the Grammy Awards in a Target commercial for Adele’s album.  Her name is Denise Bestman, and her amazing story is one of hope, luck, and great talent. 

Denise is a Staten Island sixth-grader, and the Target commercial promoting the sale of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adele[/lastfm]’s album “21” has pointed the spotlight directly at her.  She is seen on a city bus singing “Rolling In The Deep,”  later being  joined by other girls on the bus. The song then transitions to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adele[/lastfm]’s version.  Target tracked Denise down after seeing her lead the P.S. 22 Chorus in a version of the song on Youtube.  She now attends Edwin Markham Intermediate School, but I will bet we’ll be hearing and seeing much more of her in the months and perhaps years to come.  This is one talented little girl, and here’s video proof.
