Amira enchants Royal Albert Hall

During the BT Christmas Concert in december, Amira enchanted the audience in the Royal Albert Hall in London. This time, with her interpretation of O Holy Night, a Christmas classic she sang for the first time in public.

During the concert, filming was not allowed. Also, we don’t know if a professional video registration of the concert has been made. So, not very usable video material available, but luckily some more useful audio recordings landed on various smart phones in the audience. Check out what happens if you put them together in a stereo-mix…

Amira’s ready for Vegas!

Last december, opera talent Amira Willighagen won the finals of Holland’s Got Talent as well as a trip to Las Vegas. Due to album-recordings and her performances in South-Africa, she didn’t have the time yet, but coming week it’s finally going to happen: Amira goes Vegas! She’ll be leaving coming Saturday, together with her family.

On Sunday there will be a sound check down at Planet Hollywood, where Amira will shine in V – The Ultimate Variety Show, coming Wednesday April 30th at 8:30pm PDT.

Besides the performance, Amira and her family will have plenty of time to enjoy their holiday, for example at the pool of the hotel, or by taking a safari tour.

What the agenda for the rest of the coming week will look like, is yet unknown.

Amira Willighagen is only nine years old but her extraordinary talent and achievements prove she is not just your average kid.

Fresh from winning 2013’s Holland’s Got Talent (Holland’s version of the talent show America’s Got Talent), Amira was in South Africa for about a week, doing performances and singing at the opening of children’s playgrounds in Ikageng, going to interviews and most importantly, visiting family in Kempton Park and Potchefstroom.

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
