29/10: WOW - WHAT A TALENT!

This little girl, Amira, is just 9 years old and self-taught. She learned to sing opera by watching/listening to YouTube clips apparently. Here she is performing on Holland's Got Talent.

Wow! As you say, absolutely amazing. Lets hope her talent doesn't go to her head, but sadly I fear it will. I am never sure weather such talent is a blessing or a curse. But amazing never the less.

Fantastic. What an incredible voice. Thanks so much for sharing it.

I'm sure she will be/has been snapped up by a producer by now.

I agree Bev that it could go either way. Lena Zavaroni comes to mind - stardom at 9 years and a lifetime of self-doubt and anorexia. She died in her 30s weighing just 3½ stone I think. But lots of other child proteges do well so I wish her all the best.

I don't actually watch these talent shows, just the videos when somebody special (Susan Boyle) takes the judges by surprise. But the judges all seem the same - over acting and OTT???

Oh my, she brought tears to my eyes.

I hope she gets the correct management behind her - someone who has her best at heart.
