Holland Got Talent (HGT) had a sensational moment when a young girl voiced Nessun Dorma with utter perfection. An exceptional opera, of which Giacomo Puccini will be proud.
When you hear ‘Nessun Dorma’ you think of Luciano Pavarotti, the legendary operatic tenor. The song had a different tune when Amira Willighagen let out a sonorous, angelic voice that sent shivers down the entire stage.
Amira had her arms outstretched, swaying gently, while controlling her breathing brilliantly.
As she picked up the third verse, the backup vocalists as the host of heaven could be heard supporting her. At this point, the judges and audience were blown away.
Amira continued to sing, under the spotlight, and her harmonies set the stage on fire. She had every moment, every word and the whole world in tune with her singing.
There was a pause. Eyes closed, she took a deep breath as she prepared herself for the final confrontation. One that left the audience speechless. The choristers held the moment gracefully, singing in unison.
The girl broke out on an incredibly high note. Singing with all her breath and all her strength. Amira rang the final line, prolonging the note perfectly, as she ended Nessun Dorma in a perfect crescendo.
