If at the age of 11, she sings like this (make sure you watch the video), one wonders what the world holds for her at 21! Oh boy, this little girl not only is the youngest singer to have a platinum album under her name, she's God's gift to the world!      Yes, we certainly got a new superstar. Not only so, this is a voice that's unrivaled. Not even Susan Boyle can beat this pureness! What a miracle she is!

She has a gift and she is a mere 10 year old girl. A joy to listen to and she's now touted to be the youngest solo artist to debut in top 10. Amazing!
