John Glenn, the 'last true national hero,' dead at 95

This little girl’s voice will amaze you


With the hustle and bustle that came with the holiday season, you may have missed the shocking big voice that came out of a relatively small body.

Amira Willighagen became an Internet sensation when a video of her first performance on “Holland’s Got Talent” in October received more than 13 million views on YouTube.com.

The 9-year-old — yes, she’s only 9 — stunned the crowd with the vocal range.

She recently won first place on the reality competition show. Victory came with a trophy and her own Las Vegas showcase.

Willighagen sang “Ave Maria” in the TV show’s semi-final and Giacomo Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma” for its final.

Check out the video above to see why people say this little girl is going places.
