Sina’s drum cover of My Sharona by The Knack

Born in 1999, Sina is a young German drummer and musician who has been doing drum covers on YouTube since she was about 14 years-old. This is her recent drum cover video of "My Sharona" by The Knack, which I'm embarrassed to say was an anthem, of sorts, at my Catholic...
