Young girl sang an 80-year-old song – The audience went crazy

ver the Rainbow remains a classic adored by millions of people. First written for the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, by composer Harold Arlen and lyricist Yip Harburg, the song took on a significance greater than the moment it was intended to soundtrack.

One of the most widely embraced interpretations of this iconic song came from Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, the Hawaiian vocalist who delivered a tender rendition on his beloved ukulele during a late-night session in 1988.

Recording engineer Milan Bertosa said how he got a call one night at 3 a.m by a man who wanted to record a song. “And in walks the largest human being I had seen in my life,” Bertosa was reported to have said. “Then I put up some microphones, do a quick sound check, roll tape, and the first thing he does is ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’ He played and sang, one take, and it was over.”

Over the years, the song has been used by many film companies and producers.

But when it comes to life performances of this piece of music, many are afraid to sing it because it requires incredible technique and special vocal abilities to deliver it the way it should sound.

When then 11-year-old Anna took the stage of The Voice Kids, she took the attention of the judges, who had never pressed the buttons that quick, and stole the hearts of everyone who has witnessed her powerful performance.

Anna was considered a star in the making because her confidence was very high and her voice was angelic.

This is truly something you don’t want to miss. Take a look at the stunning performance in the video below.
