Amira has her Golden Record!

Not even 3 weeks after her album Amira has hit the shops, Amira Willighagen already received her first Golden Record. An artist receives this award if an album of the Classical genre sells 10.000 times.

The 10-year-old opera singer received her Golden Record yesterday, out of the hands of TV-personality Albert Verlinde during the TV-program RTL Boulevard. Amira is very proud, but also a bit surprised as she didn’t expect her album to be selling that well already.

For us the upcoming Golden Record wasn’t really a surprise. After the first week since its release, Amira’s album immediately took the lead in the Dutch Album Top 100, which also makes her the youngest artist to ever take the #1 position in this chart.
