DAYTON, OHIO (CBS SF) – Her rap video about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has exploded online, garnering hundreds of thousands of views.
Now 5-year-old YouTube star Sarah Redden – who was among the topics of conversation Thursday on the Sarah and Vinnie Show on San Francisco’s Radio Alice @97.3 – is answering questions about that video, her love of the 49ers, and her tattoos.
There is no doubt Kaepernick’s fan base is growing, and this little girl from Dayton, Ohio is watching her popularity grow as his stardom does.
Donning tattoos, 49ers gear and a skull cap, the young Redden takes love for football to a new level — making her the latest YouTube sensation.
“Wearing No. 7 like Colin Kaep, talking Super Bowl wins, he’s bringing them back,” Redden raps in her video. “Wearing diamonds, singing loud, San Fran what were about. Winning games is what we do.”
Known to her Twitter followers as @SarahReddenDYT, Redden also drops names such as David Akers and Darius Fleming as she raps.
“I just like singing and I just like making songs,” Redden said in an interview.
She also explained why she loves the 49ers’ quarterback Kaepernick: “Cause he’s a great football player, and I like watching him on TV. The 49ers and the Steelers have always been my favorite teams.”
Kissing her tattoos is something Redden is also doing in her video, but don’t worry parents: “The tattoos are not real,” she said.
