Nine years old. Amira Willighagen is just nine years old, people. And listen to her voice.
She’s singing the opera song, O Mio Babbino Caro. The pause just before she starts it. Look how calm she is. In front of soooo many people.
At 26 secs, when she hits that high note, it’s just, wow. And her look of conviction and strength when she does it. And one of the judges’ reactions as well! Plus the other judge standing too, looking a bit lost!
And that’s all in the first 33 seconds!
Such a heartfelt performance. You can see her feeling every word; the passion, the way her head sways, her eyes closing.
1:31 – that high note again.
Amira sings a particular part and the judge at the end tosses his hands and stands up again like “this is too much talent, it’s ridiculous, I can’t take it.”
As she finishes, all judges are on their feet clapping – the crowd on their feet too! One the judges bows!
The video of Amira’s performance has only been up for less than a week and it’s on its way to 4 million views! Well deserved.
