Watch Tavi Gevinson Perform Neil Young's 'Heart of Gold'

Tavi Gevinson is accomplishing more at age 15 than most women twice her age. Not only is she widely admired in the fashion industry for her blog Style Rookie and her online magazine Rookie (that she founded and edits, natch), she's whip-smart and BFFs with some of fashion's youngest darlings. Now she can add songstress to her resume. As we reported she would, Tavi covered "Heart of Gold" after a midnight screening of her new short film, one of the few people Neil Young has allowed to do so. The song is also featured in the short film, Cadaver, which The Cut is reporting to be in talks for a feature length film.

Tavi Gevinson is accomplishing more at age 15 than most women twice her age. Not only is she widely admired in the fashion industry for her blog Style Rookie and her online magazine Rookie (which she founded and edits), she's whip-smart and BFFs with some of fashion's youngest darlings. Now she can add songstress to her resume. As we reported she would, Tavi performed Neil Young's "Heart of Gold" last night after a midnight screening of her new short film, Cadaver. The song is also featured in the film, which The Cut is reporting may be made into a feature length movie.

As for Tavi's singing voice? It's light but full of emotion, the result of six years of vocal lessons. The performance itself is a little timid, no doubt a combination of novice and nerves, but overall count us impressed! Check out the performance below.
