12-Year-Old Opera Singer-Amira Willighagen-18 June 2017

When Dutch opera singer and “Holland’s Got Talent” sixth season winner, Amira Willighagen, opens her mouth to sing you could hear a pin drop as the audience clings onto her every note. The incredible prodigy is so impressive that she even brings her co-star, Patrizio Franco Buanne, a Neapolitan-Austrian singer, to his knees!

In a video, Willighagen, who is 12 years old at the time of the concert, is seen wowing the crowd in South Africa with her duet of “O Sole Mio.” Since winning, “Holland’s Got Talent” when she was only 9 years old, the young star continues to impress. While Franco has been singing and sharing his vocal gift with the world for over two decades, Willighagen is not intimidated by his stellar resume in the least bit! [more ]
