Denise Bestman, 11, Sings Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep' In Target Commercial (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Meet Denise Bestman. She's an 11-year-old girl from Staten Island who became a YouTube sensation with her choir's rendition of Adele's "Rolling In The Deep."

Now, the pre-teen singer has been featured in a Target commercial, belting out the same song that first got her noticed.

The advertisement for Adele's album "21" aired several times during the Grammy Awards on Feb. 12, the night the singer took home six awards.

PS 22 school Choral Director Gregg Breinberg said he has high hopes Bestman will one day walk the red carpet.

"Next step -- she’ll be on the Grammys accepting an award and someone will be singing her song in a commercial," Breinberg told the New York Daily News. "With Denise, it would not surprise me."

The 11-year-old is still reeling from excitement and is now enjoying a bit of fame around town.

"Everybody, all my classmates, they were like 'Oh my god, my class mate was on TV,'" Bestman told WABC News.

Video of the New York native singing at her middle school first appeared online in April. Since then, it has since received more than 1 million views.

But the Staten Island school is no stranger to the spotlight.

The choir traveled to Los Angeles in 2011 to perform at the Academy Awards, the New York Post reports. Students have met celebrities including Lady Gaga and Beyonce.
