When 9-year-old Amira Willighagen from Nijmegen stepped onto the "Holland's Got Talent" stage, no one was expecting such a big voice to come out of such a very little girl.
Her incredible rendition of Puccini's "O Mio Babbino Caro" from the opera "Gianni Schicchi" earned her a Golden Ticket from the judges that would take her straight to the live show.
She told the judges, "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," HLNBE reports.
Brava, Amira. Brava.
Clarification: Language has been amended to indicate that "Gianni Schicchi" is the name of the opera from which the aria is taken, not the name of its composer.
