When you think of an opera singer, you think of a mature man or woman, singing on a stage in a big wig and elaborate costume. Well, this 9-year-old girl is about to change your impression of what an opera singer looks like.
9-year-old Amira Willighagen of the Netherlands has wowed people all over Holland with her impressive voice and it’s easy to see why. After entering, and winning, Holland’s Got Talent, the young singer has gone from success to success, wowing people with her incredible vocals.
In the video below, Amira was invited to perform in a Christmas special hosted by Max, Maakt Mogelijk, a Dutch television programme. The young girl managed to move people to tears with her perfect rendition of ‘O Holy Night’.

Amira’s voice raises to the heavens as she commands the room and gives goosebumps to everyone in the audience. The audience is absolutely captivated by her amazing talent.
