“So before I came to Kenya I decided to try and limit my social media usage to be present and really take in this amazing experience with our Influence Hers crew But we’re coming to an end and I had to post this beautiful moment!!
While finishing up one of our service projects with Fountain Youth this little girl came up to us as we were leaving and asked to sing a song. Then she blew us away… #undiscoveredtalent
Share, share, help us make her viral!”
The video went viral in Kenya with celebrities such as Big Ted, Vivian among others promising to work with the young girl to fully explore her talent.
