When Amira arrived last Thursday at the Vergelegen wine estate, one could easily be misled in assuming she was just any ordinary child on holiday with her family. Only a few in South-Africa could know that one of the world’s youngest singing stars had arrived in Cape Town. Read more

CD-recording completed

amira-stonehenge2_rThis week-end Netherlands’ youngest opera talent Amira Willighagen went into the studio to record her debute album. Amira traveled to the south of England, where it took her only two days to record all tracks for her first album.  Recording was done in a studio not far from the world famous Stonehenge.

On the page TV & Video you can find an item from RTL Boulevard about the recording of the CD in England.

Amira in the Social Media

In the social media -especially on Facebook and Twitter- there are many accounts with names such as Amira WillighagenAmira HGT et cetera. New accounts with similar names are created regularly. Which one to follow? To fans and other people who’d like to know more about Amira, it’s difficult to find out which accounts or pages to check; Besides that it’s just sad that there are people who only can draw attention to themselves by using (or rather abusing) Amira’s name!

AmiraFans has an issue with that and wants to help out. Reason? First of all we’d like to make clear to anyone interested in Amira’s personality and talent, where her official news can be found. Second, besides being an opera talent, Amira is also just an ordinary child. It’s very well possible that other children from +/- Amira’s age just get acquainted with the social media and think to have become friends with “Amira”, although they in fact don’t know for sure.

So what we did was just ask, and we got a very clear answer:  There is only one single Facebook page which is maintained by Amira’s family and at which Amira occasionally posts something herself. This Facebook-page is Amira Willighagen Official. All other pages or accounts -on Facebook as well as Twitter, Hyves and all other social media- are either created by fans, or they are just fake.

If and when pages or accounts on other social media will be added, AmiraFans will let you know on this page.

Amira’s first CD is coming!

Great news for all fans: Amira Willighagen is currently preparing to record her first CD, which will be release in Spring and contains opera tunes. Which and how many tracks will be recorded for the album, isn’t clear yet.We expect at least the songs O mio babbino caroAve Maria and Nessun dorma, which Amira performed during Holland’s Got Talent, will be on the album. We don’t know yet how and when Amira’s CD will be on sale. As soon as we have more information, we definitely let you know.

The photo shoot for the CD cover pictures took place during the first weekend of February. Of course the final cover photos aren’t available yet, but we do have some photos for you from the preparations.
