9 year old Amira Willighagen taught herself how to sing by watching Youtube performances. When she got on stage in front of the judges of Holland’s got talent, they were expecting another pop song as other girl’s her age often perform. When she opened her mouth and started to sing, they were completely blown away.

Her self-taught talent eventually carried her to the finals, which she won.
She is now 10 and her self-titled album “Amira” recently debuted. The ability that this young star has developed thanks to a whole lot of talent, dedication, and perhaps YouTubing is truly something you have to see to believe.
