Despite her youth, Amira Willighagen is a prodigy. This young girl, who has been described as having the voice of an angel, has true skill when it comes to singing! She’s used her skills to raise money for the creation of playgrounds for children in underserved communities.
When her parents asked her what would make her the happiest, she responded that giving back to children like herself so that they can play worry-free would make all of her hardships worthwhile!
Hailing from Holland, Amira Willighagen was a part of the final episode for Holland’s Got Talent. The song that she elected to sing is from an opera known as Turandot, written by a famous opera writer called Puccini. The narrative is one of a tragic romance regarding a tyrannical and wicked Chinese princess.
Her cruelty knew no bounds; any young man who was smitten by her looks were made to answer three riddles. If any one of these questions were answered incorrectly, then the would-be groom was beheaded without trial immediately.
Eventually, there was a prince named Calaf who arrived in her kingdom. In a stunning role reversal, the wicked Chinese princess falls for him! The song Nessun Dorma is actually a sort of pep talk that the prince Calaf is giving to himself in order to buff up his confidence that he can win Turandot’s hand in marriage.
Unfortunately, things do not go as planned, and the old saying “only fools fall in love” is expertly depicted in the story. It’s understandable to wonder how a young and innocent child could manage to portray the raw emotion and spirit of such a love story.
Amira Willighagen had already astonished the judges with a separate Puccini piece, which had already made her a viral star in Holland. As a result, everyone expected her to advance to the final round.
Amira entered the stage wearing a modest white dress with a skirt. She wore a necklace that was specifically chosen to represent the play’s emotional theming, as well as a range of golden ornaments and bangles.
With a nearby choir in darkness set to accompany her as a backup group, the light shone down upon her and reflected off of her expertly-curled golden locks. The weight of the importance of such a performance was clear on her face;
she would not let this opportunity go to waste. After taking a little bit of time to compose herself, she closed her eyes and began to sing in a way completely unheard of by both the judges and the audience.
Even veterans of earlier episodes were absolutely stunned by the amount of talent that she demonstrated that night. Not to the surprise of the crowd or those who understand what a true talent Amira Willighagen is,
After the audience voted her first place, the girl received the top prize. The applause seemed to go on and on for several minutes, and it was as loud as Amira’s voice. Even the accompanying choir was taken aback, barely keeping up with her incredible performance.
She has established a nonprofit organization with the proceeds from her winnings, and she has committed half of the prize money to the construction of parks. These parks are known as “Amira Parks” and are intended to be developed in economically depressed communities around the world for children who would otherwise never have the opportunity to visit a local park.
Amira’s grand finale performance has been viewed over ten million times by fans all around the world. She plans on continuing to perform under the auspices of her parents for years to come.
