It's not often I get tears in my eyes...

... but I have got them now.

I only heard about Alma Deutscher a couple of days ago, as an accomplisged composer at not yet 12 years of age.

In an idle moment I looked her up and found this:



Nothing left to say.

Same for me! I've also got tears in my eyes. Thanks for sharing!

Damn video must be broke because my eyes are completely dry,... but she certainly does have an awesome voice, incredible range and power at such a young age very, very impressive.

I also dug this guy sitting in the audience, when Miss Deutscher started to sing he was air-conducting all over his aisle like a madman!



Funny.

“Our Father who art in nature, who has given the gift of survival to the coyote, the common brown rat, the English sparrow, the house fly and the moth, must have a great and overwhelming love for no-goods and blots-on-the-town and bums, and Mack and the boys. Virtues and graces and laziness and zest. Our Father who art in nature.”
― John Steinbeck

No to mention incredible confidence!

She also still sounds like a 12 yo girl who is really enjoying herself in her interviews. Thinks of fairies and princesses to give her inpiration.

Hope fame is kind to her.

Hey, guys, I made a mistake in my sekection!

I googled Alma and did not notice that the citations included  Amira Willihagen - who it is singing on the video!

Still very moving and I have heard Alma's voice elsewhere, a good voice but maybe without the range.



(There aren't many videos of her singing.)

However, her other talents make up for it!
