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.

Pure beautiful voice. Ave Maria will get a little smoother as she matures, the other cuts are almost perfect as they are.

If I could, I would give Amira 10 stars, and the studio that recorded the album a 3. I watched Amira through all her talent performances, and am in love with the beautiful purity of her voice. Unfortunately, that voice is overshadowed by the recording facility that made her album. It is not good; lacking the quality one hears in the accompanying music in her three talent show performances. Ineffective backup recordings sort of robbed Amira of some of the voice quality I had hoped to hear in the album.

This kid just turned 10 in early March. I first found her on Youtube and thought she was pretty awesome with no vocal training at the time. Now she has had about 6 weeks of coaching vocally and with foreign pronunciations. This is a rising star and I'm proud to have her first CD.

AMIRA not only can hit the highest of notes; but is particularly solid in all lower ranges.
The quality of her voice is unsurpassed by any contemporaries.
She is in the mold of my other favorites....Hayley Westenra and Charlotte Church.
Highly recommended.
