Hawkins heard about Sofia’s drumming and went out to meet her in person.
“Emma Sofía Peralta (9) dazzled the entire audience and Foo Fighters fans when she arrived with her drums and played for an hour in front of the hotel where the group was staying. Drummer Taylor Hawkins came down to meet her and take a picture”.
