Paul McCartney Praises Mi'kmaq Student's "Blackbird" Cover
Emma Stevens, a 16-year-old girl from Nova Scotia, recently recorded a cover of Beatles' classic "Blackbird" in her native Mi'kmaq language — and it turns out Paul McCartney himself is a fan.
 
Macca performed in Lexington, KY, on Saturday night (June 1), and during the show, he gave Stevens a shoutout and encouraged everyone else to check out her rendition of the song.
 
"There's an incredible version a Canadian girl's done… see it on YouTube," he said onstage, before performing his original song. "It's in her native language… it's really cool, check it out."
 
Stevens' version was recorded with her music teacher Carter Chiasson and her classmates at Allison Bernard Memorial High School in Eskasoni, NS.
 
The cover went viral last month, but if you haven't seen it yet, do as McCartney says and "check it out" below.
