Now, you have to know the best part of this whole performance, which is the story behind Amira’s incredible voice. Her brother plays the violin, and she wanted to do something special for Queen’s Day with him.
So she searched on YouTube for opera videos and spent days learning how to sing.. This is unbelievable!
Take a peek at the video below to see this amazing self-taught talent wow the judges with her pitch-perfect rendition of Puccini’s “O Mio Babbino Caro” from the opera “Gianni Schicchi.” You will be truly stunned!
The jury (Gordon, Dan Karaty and Chantal Janzen) were stunned and gave her one of their “golden tickets,” which meant that Amira went directly to the live shows. Gordon is not the only one who was amazed to hear about how she was self-taught. She has had nothing to go by but the recorded works that she has listened to and sung with, over and over, till they became part of her.
Gordon speaks of the purity and beauty of her voice and how the spirit of her singing reminds him of the great Maria Callas.
Wow, this girl is definitely an old soul. Bravo, Amira. Bravo!
