WATCH | Paul McCartney praises Nova Scotia teen's Mi'kmaq cover of Blackbird

A teen from Nova Scotia is getting a big shout from one of the Beatles.

Back in April, Emma Stevens and fellow students from Nova Scotia recorded a Mi'kmaq cover of the song 'Blackbird.'

Now, Sir Paul McCartney is singing her praises - during a concert he encouraged fans to go to her high school's YouTube Channel and check out her work.

In the video's description, the students explain the video and song translation were completed as part of the United Nations' International Year of Indigenous Languages.
