Singer Amira Willighagen (9 years old) Wins Holland’s Got Talent – UPDATED POST

Amira Willighagen

I have updated this post to show how Amira has progressed in three years.

First, I have inserted a new YouTube video of a performance of 'O Sole Mio' E di Capua to demonstrate how Amira has developed her voice over the past three years. Remember, though, she is still only 12 years old (until March 27, 2017)!

Second, I have added some text and links to help you find out more about Amira.

Enjoy and be amazed!

Amira Willighagen, age nine, has never had a voice lesson!

She learned all she knows about singing from watching performers on YouTube and learning from them.

She performed the song in the video featured here in the quarterfinals of Holland’s Got Talent in the October, 2013 and went on to win the finals.

This video has nearly 16 million views!


I have also included a wonderful rendering of Ave Maria by Amira in the semi finals.

Now Here is Amira in a Late 2016 Performance

This is how YouTube introduces the video:

Amira and Ben Heijnen singing “O Sole Mio” – E. di Capua

Video registration of the concert “Amira in Concert” that took place on December 9, 2016 in the Nieuwe Kerk Huizen, Netherlands.

The song “O Sole Mio” was chosen as the encore song which was much appreciated by the audience.
While performing the song, Ben and Amira spontaneously turned it into a battle of who can sing the longest note ….. The orchestra and artists were rewarded with a standing ovation.

Amira and Ben accompanied by Harmonieorkest Prinses Irene Huizen, conducted by Joop Boerstoel.



Amira’s Website

Amira has a personal website that creatively combines the life of a young girl with that of a world famous vocal star.

Spend a few minutes and get to know more about her.

Back in 2013 at the Holland’s Got Talent Contest, Amira told the judges she wants to become a professional opera singer when she grows up.  She also added that she hopes to be an Olympic athlete if she doesn’t make it as a singer!

So, what do you think?  Will she make it as a singer or does she need to start training for the Olympics?
