What a great story. Beautiful girl with a beautiful voice is given an beautiful reception. Thanks.
I dusted off my old music degree & listened with a critical ear: she IS amazing, and will only improve with time as her voice - the physical part - matures. Wow. And thank you for posting this!
Shivers and tears, thank you.
Her appearance on the Rumanian version of the show is even better, she sang "O Mio Babino Caro" the best I have ever heard, and it's a very difficult aria even for experienced opera singers.
Thanks so much for posting this. Warmed my heart...
Been an opera fan for most of my life, and I just couldn't believe the sound that came out of her tiny body!Laura Bretan will be as big or bigger than a lot of the Divas out there now! Thanks so much for posting this!
A sweet little girl with the voice of an angel. Thank you for sharing and posting!
Thank you all for your comments. I've seen her sing at church and her voice is absolutely amazing and she is just the sweetest soul.
she was indeed simply and astonishingly amazing! I've watched it several times now and still am in awe and wonder. Loved it!
I saw it Tuesday evening and was surprised by the turnaround in Simon Cowell's expression. As he said he wasn't expecting much from her. She has a truly beautiful voice.
I have a number of friends who have B.A.'s and M.A.'s in vocal performance. I've heard them perform multiple times and have even performed with them a few times (no, I'm an amateur, but sometimes they need an extra tenor for the chorus). This is astonishing. How can she have a voice like that at 13? And she has obviously put a lot of time in learning how to use it, she isn't just trying to skate by on talent alone.If she keeps putting in the work and gets into a good program she'll have a great career ahead of her.
