A nine-year-old girl has become an overnight sensation both at home and abroad after her amazing performance while auditioning for Holland’s Got Talent went viral.
Amira Willighagen drew astonishment from the judges and audience alike as her spellbinding rendition of operatic classic O Mio Babbino Caro earned herself a ‘golden ticket’ straight to the live shows.”Are you really nine years old?” astounded judge Chantal Janzen asked. “This is incredible.”
Perhaps even more amazing was when young Amira admitted she had never even had singing lessons, instead honing her incredible voice from YouTube tutorials.
“My brother Vincent plays violin, and I also wanted to do something … so I thought, I’m going to sing … and then I heard opera songs, which I found very beautiful and that’s when I started singing,” she said.
