WOW!!! If you only listened to her voice and never saw a picture of Rachel Cousins you would never believe that she is just 16 years old. I am truly in awe of this talented youngster. With such an emotional connection to her music when she performs you can only imagine how far she will go as she gets older and more experienced. But that’s not all….watch the video of her performing her original song Left Behind (video below) live and you will discover that she is an amazing guitarist as well. My hope is that the world will get to know Rachel because we would be better for it.
