“Hello” is one of Adele’s most popular songs. In a recent video, a brother and sister duo completely remade the hit single. They performed a reggae-style cover that is driving the internet wild.
Rosie Delmah is only 14 years old. With her brother, Nicholas Murray, she frequently performs reggae music. They perform under the names of Rodesha and Conkarah in the Solomon Islands. Because of where they grew up, reggae is an integral part of their life and culture.
