PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A South Jersey teen’s musical talents are catching the eyes and ears of the Philadelphia 76ers and their fans. Fifteen-year-old Sadie Smith, of Atco, is known on Twitter as, “the Sixers piano girl.”
She plays the catchy Sixers theme song after each win.

Smith was on Eyewitness News This Morning Thursday and spoke about the response she is getting from people as her videos are going viral.
“It’s a lot of heartwarming stuff, I get people who say that my videos are what they look forward to the most after the Sixers win or I inspire them to pick up an instrument that they hadn’t played in years. A lot of nice stuff,” Smith said.
Smith says Joel Embiid is currently her favorite player on the team.
The Sixers visit Orlando Thursday night for a New Year’s Eve showdown against Markelle Fultz and the undefeated Magic.
Tip off is at 6:30 p.m.
