A young girl band called “The Warning”, comprised of three sisters from Mexico, has gained the attention of the international music community after they made an awesome cover of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman”.
As one of the rock band’s most popular song, fans were waiting with abated breath as to how these kids can perform this most-played Metallica song.
Watching The Warning sing the popular rock song is like a breath of fresh air. Considering how young these girls are, you can surely say they have great talent. They did not copy the band’s style or mimic the song with 100% accuracy yet what they did was already fantastic!
Of course, you’ll be surprised at how young they are and how wonderful they were able to execute this performance. The youngest of the three, bass player Alejandra, is just 9 years old! The eldest, Daniela, is 14 years old; she’s the lead singer and guitarist. I am quite impressed by 12-year-old drummer Paulina; she reminds me of the drummer from The Corrs.
Watch these beautiful sisters create a superb performance they are hoping would land them a spot on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. We’re rooting for you, young ladies! Great going!
