Excellent - a beautiful, pure, youthful voice, yet she sounds mature and emotional, with spectacular top notes! - I so like this CD (with mostly opera arias, but some other songs too) that I bought several more as gifts... Amazing that such a beautiful, powerful sound comes from such a young girl - she was still 9 when she recorded this album in February 2014 (in England - there are interesting YouTube clips showing her do it!). Her operatic singing has a wonderful tone and seems to flow naturally from deep in her heart.
When little Amira Willighagen, aged nearly 9½, got on a train from Nijmegen to Zwolle in August 2013 to audition for Holland's Got Talent (HGT), she hoped to appear once on TV and that they would like her singing. Within a few seconds of her opening her mouth, her life changed forever, as the jury and audience instantly recognized her exceptional voice. I watched the YouTube clips of Amira singing on HGT many times (those 3 songs are on the album), and was captivated by her singing, but also by her engaging personality and demeanour. Her audition (shown on Dutch TV on 26 October 2013) stunned the judges (another 'Susan Boyle moment') and quickly 'went viral' - she had learned to sing opera by watching YouTube clips, because she liked the songs very much. Amira is a credit to her family and The Netherlands - and has a God-given gift that makes the spirit soar and touches the emotions. The Dutch violinist and conductor André Rieu invited her (and her brother Fincent who plays violin) to a masterclass, after watching her HGT audition; then after she won the HGT final on 28th December 2013, he invited her to sing at his famous summer concerts in Maastricht (which she did on 11th and 12th July 2014).

There are 10 tracks on this outstanding CD which are: Babbino Caro, Nella Fantastia, Voi Che Sapete, Pie Jesu, Caro Mio Ben, Song to the Moon, Ave Maria, Ombra Mai Fu, In Trutina and Nessum Dorma. I was totally blown away when I first viewed Amira in Holland's Got Talent on Andre Rieu's website ([...], click on Previous Items and then Previous Items 2013 - Jul - Dec and scroll down to Amira Willighagen, where there are several videos of Amira). Having seen Amira perform, the CD becomes even more spectacular because Amira was just 9 years old and to be able to sing Nessum Dorma, an extremely difficult aria is spectacular. I play this CD frequently and have given many away as presents. Amira has been invited to perform at Andre Rieu's Maastricht concert in Holland on Saturday, 19 July, 2014, which is being transmitted Live to cinemas round the world. Tickets to a cinema near you on [...] Amira has enormous talent and didn't have singing lessons to achieve this. The Netherlands has gained a megastar.

An absolutely wonderful CD. It is just delightful, to listen to. Her voice is so good, it is almost untrue. And to think, that it should improve as she gets older! I fully expect to buy her next CD, when it comes. But I hope she does not miss too much school!

Little Amira Willighagen has an amazing singing voice that an adult singer would envy. Even more amazing is that she was singing opera arias by the age of nine without having any formal training. She is a natural. She became an international star when her performance of "O Mio Babbino Caro" at Holland's Got Talent became a YouTube sensation with more than 20 million hits. In this debut album, Amira sings familiar crossover classics. They are beautiful. I am looking forward to hearing more of Amira in the coming years as her voice matures.

I came across Amira by chance when looking for another singer on U-tube. Amira has a most amazing voice for a then 9 year old. If one closes one's eyes and just listen, it is not difficult to imagine a very mature female singing instead of a very young girl. She is certainly very talented. I found, and still do scores of times later, listening to her voice very moving particularly as all the 3 songs she sang on Holland's Got Talent are very popular ones. Obviously there will be critics but one must not forget her age and the fact that she was self-taught. I can only highly recommend this CD by Amira, you shouldn't be disappointed.

Like many, I discovered Amira on YouTube, and for the first time I was 'moved' by opera singing (despite my love of classical music, Opera has never appealed to me). The purity and youthfulness of Amira's voice comes through very clearly with this recording, and so far I have not tired of it, listening to it over and over.
