André Rieu & Amira - O Mio Babbino Caro
Amira Willighagen (born March 27, 2004) is a Dutch soprano singer who won the sixth season of Holland's Got Talent in 2013, at the age of 9. Amira Willighagen speaks both Dutch and Afrikaans because she was born to a Dutch father and a South African mother whose mother tongue is Afrikaans.
She grew up surrounded by classical music.
At the age of seven she looked at her brother Fincent playing the violin, their mother Frieda also played the violin and the father Gerrit played the piano. She didn't know to play instruments, so she tried to sing vocally. At the beginning, before taking singing lessons, Willighagen learned by herself to sing opera arias, using YouTube tutorials.
That's how she discovered her talent and passion for music. Even her mother was surprised when she heard her the first time singing.
