7-Year-Old Stuns Viewers When She Sings 'Gloomy Sunday' By Billie Holiday

Posted: Updated:

When 7-year-old Angelina Jordan Astar got onstage to sing "Gloomy Sunday" for "Norway's Got Talent," no was expecting this voice to come out of such a little girl.

Her smoky, soulful tone is reminiscent of Billie Holiday, and makes her seem wise beyond her years. It takes a truly old soul to capture the feeling of Lady Day, let alone audiences' hearts.

Her incredible performance earned her a standing ovation and the tears of several audience members. 9 News reports that the judges "unanimously agreed to send Astar, who has been singing since she was 3, through to the next round of the TV talent contest."

We hope to hear plenty more from this aspiring star.
