Someone in my newsfeed shared this story, so I clicked in and listened to the song! By mid-way, I had tears in my eyes and by the end – I was a blubbering mess. Such a powerful song!!
Molly Kate Kestner, a high school senior from Minnesota has achieved internet fame nearly overnight after posting a video of herself on Facebook.
Her own song is called “his daughter,” it’s about a girl who’s abandoned by an alcoholic father. Molly posts music on her page quite often, but she said she had been saving this one for a while.
“Okay….So this is probably my favorite song I’ve ever written. I wrote it a year ago but I never posted it because I wanted to save it for my senior solo, but now that’s over…so I am FINALLY sharing it with the world,” Kestner wrote. “It’s called ‘His Daughter’ and it is a story. So I hope you are inspired as I was when I wrote this. Happy Easter:)”
Her video was shared more than 200, 000 times on Facebook and the video has more than 3 million views on YouTube already!
Such an amazing song!!
