Editorial Reviews

Last November, after a stunning audition for Holland s Got Talent, Amira's performance of "O Mio Babbino Caro" went viral, touching millions of people worldwide. Even Simon Cowell tweeted that Amira is a "total star." She went on to win the talent contest and is now set to release her debut album, Amira. Originally from the Netherlands, Amira, who is only ten years old, taught herself to sing opera by watching videos on YouTube and imitating the "big voices" she saw on her computer. After convincing her parents to audition for Holland's Got Talent, the adventure began and shows no signs of stopping. Amira's debut album is a collection of big opera classics, featuring "Nessun Dorma," Ave Maria," "Nella Fantasia" and, of course, "O Mio Babbino Caro."

like everyone else, i first saw Amira on youtube after the first talent show audition. i bought the CD because i really wanted to hear what she sounded like on my big stereo speakers rather than the earbuds, laptop and tv speakers that i was able to play the videos on.

she is amazing. she has received 6-8 weeks of professional instruction and it shows. it is hard to imagine that she will get better over time, but she will.

i read two reviews that spoke poorly of the recording studio quality. i disagree. it sounds perfectly fine to my ears.

EDIT i reread one of the reviews about poor quality. that review seems to be speaking to manufacturing quality, not musical production. obviously, i have no idea what the manufacturing quality of someone else's CD is. both musical production and manufacturing are good on mine. sorry for any confusion.

the biggest thing missing from this is her charm that comes across so well in the videos, but a CD is not a DVD.

it is a short CD. about 33 minutes. i'll just need play it twice.

two more small points.

first, someone has introduced a trill into her pronunciation. most noticeable in tracks 4,5 and 10. hopefully she will correct this quickly.

second, when she first came on the scene, many comparisons were made with jackie evancho. among the thanks she gives in the album notes, one is to jackie evancho. a nice touch of class. she also, of course thanks her brother.

I would have bought her CD even if it hadn't been so good in thanks for the pleasure she has given me in watching her perform on Holland's Got Talent.
Amira is a child prodigy, singing like an adult when she is only nine. She has a recognizable pleasing timbre for the lower notes but where she really shines is her seemingly effortless high notes. Hard to analyze just what it is that is so emotional that it brings a tear to your eye, but I think it is her controlled vibrato on high notes that otherwise would have the purity of a boy treble.

All things considered her CD is an amazing effort. No question she has room to grow and I will look forward seeing her progression.
From what I read, her good character is also beyond her years and she has already started doing good things with her earnings in S. Africa.

Have a look at the Youtube video someone has made of her singing Nessun Dorma with Paverotti as a duet!

An amazing young girl whose talent is way beyond her years. I have been waiting for the is album to be released in the USA ever since seeing Amira on "Holland's Got Talent" . Until she won the first competition on "Holland's Got Talent" she never had a voice lesson. She taught her self watching Opera on YouTube. Puts a song in my heart.

Format: Audio CD
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 copies as gifts... Amazing that such a 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 in October) 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, he invited her to sing at his famous summer concerts in Maastricht (which she did on 11th and 12th July 2014).

I chose the highest rating of Amira's first audio cd because Amira's voice has a liquid magical quality second to none. My Dad (90) and I listen to Amira every evening. No matter how rough of a day one has as you sit back, close your eyes, and concentrate like an angel Amira cleanses your mind and as all great opera is supposed to do, uplifts your spirit and life once again becomes a thing of beauty.
I would recommend her first album to anyone who has ears to hear a beautiful opera voice with a saintly soul.
She makes the world a better place to live in. AmiraAmiraIf most people around the world no matter what ones musical preference learns about this wonderful girl and hears her sing I am positive that the ugliness, violence, greed, hate and war would be significantly reduced.
Amira is one of those rare people who bring us hope and peace and beauty.
I thank her with all my heart.
TedAmira
