The music business is a competitive industry, so would-be stars really have to do something outstanding to get noticed.
On Feb. 26, YouTube user uuuuuuuukewithme, who's being identified as Nicole, posted her ukulele rendition of the music sensation's hit song.
After the teen's soothing voice made an impression on nearly one million YouTube users, her video was even featured on Ryan Seacrest's website.
Currently, Nicole only has three other videos posted to her account, including a cover of Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours," but we're betting it won't be the last time we hear from this talented teen.
