A love-struck, fruit-inspired pop single connected to Culpeper is climbing the Viral 50 Spotify charts.
“Fine Apple” by Nic D was at No. 2 Thursday on the global audio streaming and media services platform. Nic Donovan, a former Culpeper Has Talent performer who lives and works here, is the approachable voice behind the upbeat song.
“I like my water with lemon and lime/That’s ‘cause they’re better combined/Kinda like us, you and I/If you a fruit you’d be a fine apple/If you a word you’d be the fine print/I’d like to try my hand at time travel/So you could walk by me again.”
Culpeper Has Talent creator and local media producer Gordon Humphrey helped make the video for Fine Apple with Nic D Wednesday around Culpeper along with Cakes Mitchell.
Nic D is a full time musician and producer and hosts a podcast.
“He is the definition of positivity, hard work and determination. The guy has worked tirelessly—mostly quietly—never compromising his values and stayed focused,” Humphrey said.
