The singing of Christmas carols is one of the many things that makes the holiday season so enjoyable.
This was the situation in December 2015 when a little girl brought the audience to tears with her performance at a Christmas concert.
Amira Willighagen, who was just 11 years old at the time, was asked to sing as a special guest star by the Nijmegen Men’s Choir at the Petrus Canisius Church in her hometown of Nijmegen, which is located in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands.
As she approached the microphone to perform her version of “O Holy Night,” she had an air of utter elegance and composure. The congregation was so quiet you could hear a pin drop as her lovely voice floated through the church.
Amira’s voice, which had a polished and smooth timber, filled the room despite the fact that she had a diminutive body, demonstrating that large voices may come from little packaging. Additionally, a video of her singing became viral on the internet, accumulating more than 2.7 million views in only a few days.
It is not hard to see why this is the case. Her rendition, which was laced with precision of pitch and resonance, managed to express the calmness, feeling of peace, and joy that were present in the original hymn.
Amira had had an outstanding record of achievements under her belt when she gave that performance in 2015 that broke everyone’s heart.
Amira has already participated in and won the 2013 season of “Holland’s Got Talent,” which is the Dutch adaptation of the series “Got Talent” that airs in The Netherlands when she was just 9 years old at the time.
While everything is going on, Amira’s performance from 2015 is continuing to bring in new admirers, as seen by the many fresh comments of appreciation that are still being put on the tape.
“This is music for healing that is of the highest possible quality. That is incredibly kind of you, Amira! one response was read.
