7-Year-Old Stuns Viewers When She Sings 'Gloomy Sunday' By Billie Holiday (VIDEO)
When 7-year-old Angelina Jordan Astar got onstage to sing "Gloomy Sunday" for "Norway's Got Talent," no was expecting this voice to come out of such a little girl. Her smoky, soulful tone is reminiscent of Billie Holiday, and makes her seem wise beyond her years. It takes a truly old soul to capture the feeling of Lady Day, let alone audiences' hearts. Her incredible performance earned her a standing ovation and the tears of several audience members.
Angelina's performance elicited both tears and a standing ovation from the stunned judges. But just how much did this sweet child grasp the gravity of what she was singing?
"I felt something special about it. It's hard to explain in words," said Angelina, explaining to a Norwegian television station that she speaks English and "understood [the song] very well … when I sang it for my mum, she said that this song is nice, but it was an incredibly sad song."
This young girl obviously has a very old soul.
