At a very young age, Amira Willighagen became a prodigy. With her angelic voice, the little girl managed to amaze people around the globe and gaining a huge number of fans.

Amira decided to make use of her stunning voice to help fund the construction of playgrounds for children in underprivileged areas. Amira also says that helping those children to play worry-free is what makes her the happiest.

Hailing from Holland, Amira Willighagen was a part of the final episode for Holland’s Got Talent. The song that she elected to sing is from an opera known as Turandot, written by a famous opera writer called Puccini. The narrative is one of a tragic romance regarding a tyrannical and wicked Chinese princess. Her cruelty knew no bounds; any young man who was smitten by her looks were made to answer three riddles. If any one of these questions were answered incorrectly, then the would-be groom was beheaded without trial immediately.

Eventually, there was a prince named Calaf who arrived in her kingdom. In a stunning role reversal, the wicked Chinese princess falls for him! The song Nessun Dorma is actually a sort of pep talk that the prince Calaf is giving to himself in order to buff up his confidence that he can win Turandot’s hand in marriage. Unfortunately, not all goes as planned and the old adage “only fools fall in love” is illustrated expertly in the narrative.

It wouldn’t be incorrect to be curious about how a girl so young and innocent could manage to capture the raw emotion and spirit of such a love story. Amira Willighagen wowed the judges’ team earlier with a separate Puccini piece that had already made her a viral sensation in Holland. Therefore, her slot in the final round was expected by all viewers.

Amira walked out on stage with a simple white dress and skirt. She was accented by a variety of golden accessories and bangles, including a necklace specifically selected to represent the emotional theming of the play. With a nearby choir in darkness set to accompany her as a backup group, the light shone down upon her and reflected off of her expertly-curled golden locks. The weight of the importance of such a performance was clear on her face; she would not let this opportunity go to waste. After taking a little bit of time to compose herself, she closed her eyes and began to sing in a way completely unheard of by both the judges and the audience. Even veterans of earlier episodes were absolutely stunned by the amount of talent that she demonstrated that night.

Not to the surprise of the crowd or those who understand what a true talent Amira Willighagen is, the girl won the grand prize after the audience voted her into first place. The applause lasted for several minutes, seeming to go on and on, and just as booming as Amira’s voice. Even the accompanying choir was left stunned and barely managing to keep up with her talented performance.

With her winnings she has started a nonprofit organization in which she has invested half of the prize money to build parks. These parks are called “Amira Parks” and are meant to be built internationally in economically at-risk areas for children who might otherwise never have the hope for a local park in their neighborhood.

Amira’s grand finale performance has been viewed over ten million times by fans all around the world. She plans on continuing to perform under the auspices of her parents for years to come.
