This little girl is an unbelievably good singer.

If you are disappointed, I will be shocked.

She’s very pretty and a good singer but I don’t like that kind of music. I like Jackie Evancho much better. She’s 13 now, and drop dead beautiful little blonde.

Not to be the pessimist in the crowd. But, if things go as they usually go, she will be an addict, twice married and with two kids by the time she is 18. UNLESS, she has strong parents willing to stand up to her future handlers and with a level head on her shoulders.

I wish her well.

A bit old...but I know her background...she’s been schooled in song pretty much from being a toddler....also acting I understand. So she’s had a great deal of professional training.

I am an fan of these talent shows.....here’s one of a young 9 year old who blew the socks off everyone singing “O Mio Babbino Caro” (opera)....she taught herself from ‘watching videos on you tube’ on how to sing....no professional training at all.

Actual singing starts at 1:36

Maybe a little that I wasn't born with so many good attributes packed into my body or none of my children were either. Jackie happens to be Catholic and it seems so many of the best are born Catholic. I do not envy the way they have to live as a family but I do like to watch a little girl in a gorgeous dress because little girls seldom dress that way any more.

But that was kind of mean of you to suggest I'd be jealous of a pretty little brunette who sings a type of music I never liked.

I'm happy for you that you enjoy it and maybe just shouldn't have said anything. Different people have different tastes in music. All my music and CD's I ripped are on my broken computer. I like all Jon Barry's music, Vangelis, the sound tracks to period films, Ryan's Daughter, etc.

Others would find it all very unexciting. The little girl obviously had talent and she got her moves and gestures just right.

I’ve followed this little gal to see where she has gone...interesting that in her country they “protect” their children so she is only allowed very few performances a year....which includes even interviews. Though she’s become popular since her audition she is currently limited in exposure. But sufficient to stay in the view of her fans.

An old pro at 13. Very impressive.

Good luck to her. Child prodigies often slide off the road to successful adulthood.

I don’t care for pop music either, and no, I’m not jealous. There are some people who believe moaning and groaning and screeching aren’t music.

Nonsense. I saw Brittany Spears on Star Search when she was 12 years old and she turned out just fine.

Her name is Carly Rose Sonenclar from Mamaroneck, NY. The video was from her audition for the 2012 US X-Factor show which she went on to win 2nd place overall in December of 2012.

Along with starring in several Broadway shows, a couple of movies, and playing Gilda Flip on PBS’s Electric Company kid’s show, she starred in an episode of Law and Order: SVU that aired in November 2013.

She is now 15 years old. Columbia Records has signed her to a record deal and she is currently working on a debut album of original songs.

Like I said. “Wow”. Anything more, and I would have babbled all over the page. Not much gets me to say “Wow”. Like the one judge said. She sang from an old soul. Not many of those out there. I look forward to hearing her without the crowd noise.

If you are disappointed, I will be shocked.

Be prepared to be shocked then. She isn't all that good. I bet that on any given day in any middle school or high school talent show, you could find many equal or even better and more talented singers than her.

She wasn’t “bad” but then again there was nothing exceptional about her voice. And the problem I have with it is while she has some range, most of it was IMO, rang and sounded rather flat in spots in terms of her hitting the actual notes. It sounded to me like a rather mediocre voice or even bad singer who is made to sound better via the “magic” of a sound technician using “auto tune”.

I’m just not a big fan of this style of singing and to compare her to Nina Simone is simply ridiculous.

The kid sang the lyrics to the same song and she sang a lot of notes but there was just no “soul” or feeling in it.

Color me unimpressed.

That was a great audition. Here she is singing, “How come you don’t call me anymore”. It blows my socks off every time I listen to it.

This may be the best female singing voice I ever heard and only 17.

She started on out on X Factor too.

That was beautiful.....she has a very distinct voice and puts her heart and soul into what she sings....which is what seperates the talented from the average sing songer.

Many of the contestants have yet to find “their own voice” and though sound fine they are simply another singer. The idea is to find the unique among them..who clearly has that distinction which seperates them from the herd.

Younger singers generally do not have life experiences to draw from...so their songs are simply singing.

Your second link proves my point. She has a very distinct voice and style....both your links have singers who have “found their own voice”.

There was a team that did a comparison between Evancho and this gal....so you’re correct...the findings were she out did Jackie Evancho, and this without professional training as Evancho had.
