Imagine loving Taylor Swift with all your heart and growing up with her music, only for people to tell you that you sound just like your her! That's the reality for Pinay Kemrie Barcenas, whose TikTok videos have recently gone viral. At the moment, Kemrie has more than 59 thousand followers on the social media platform.

She uploaded her first "Taylor Swift" video earlier this month, saying: "I have always been a Swiftie fan and will forever be a Swiftie fan. I mean, she's one of the reasons why I just really love music. And for a fact that my friends would say that I kinda sound like her, I should take that as a compliment, right?" In her caption, Kemrie added a *disclaimer* that she only sounds like Taylor "during some parts," and then sang the hit 2010 single "Back To December!"
