Tom Morello delivered a massive surprise to Nandi Bushell, a 10-year-old girl who recently went viral with her outstanding cover of Rage Against the Machine’s “Guerrilla Radio.”

Morello sent Bushell one of his signature Fender Stratocasters along with a video message where he said, “I’d like you to have this guitar as a gift from me to you because you rock so great, and to see someone rocking so great who is so young, it really gives me hope for the future.

Morello added, “I didn’t start playing guitar until I was 17 years old, so you are way, super-far ahead of me, and I look forward to hearing a lot more of your music in the future. You’ve got a lot of soul, and here’s a little Soul Power to go with it. Keep it up!”

Bushell was beyond surprised and shared the moment in the video below. In the video’s description on YouTube, Bushell wrote, “Dear Tom Morello, thank you so so so much! I can’t believe this is real and you actually sent me a message and your signature guitar, it is so beautiful! AMAZING! I hope we get to jam one day! Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!!!!! Thank you so much for supporting me on my musical journey.”
