Start your week off with April Lockhart’s cover of Icona Pop’s “I Love It.” This girl seriously rocks. I’m so impressed by her talent and confidence.
When I first started teaching myself how to play guitar a couple years ago, I thought I was the only one-handed guitar girl on the planet. Then I discovered April Lockhart’s YouTube channel. So as much as I’d love to say that I was an original, I think I can be content knowing that I could TOTALLY be just like April if I had super bouncy hair, flawless vintage makeup (I’m secretly hoping for a makeup tutorial, April!), a twangy voice, and…you know….HEAPS of talent.
Enjoy April’s gorgeous rendition of The Lumineers’ “Hey Ho” and share the music video (which is adorable) with all your friends (especially that guy you’ve been crushing on forever, since the lyrics are pretty darn romantic).
I was sooo excited when I found this video a few days ago because this is the first time I’ve seen another one-armed girl playing guitar! And she’s sooo good! This just goes to show that if you really want to do something, you just need to put in the work and do it. A disability is not the end of the world nor is it a deterrent to your dreams.
On another note, I really want a guitar prosthetic like hers. It’s way cooler than duct-taping a pick to your little arm.
