Born and raised in Oslo, Norway, this young lady has achieved superstardom in a heartbeat after stunning the judges on Norway’s Got Talent. She was just seven at the time and yes, she won the competition with the show achieving record setting TV audiences.
Angelina Jordan became a viral sensation and in no time, hit the screens of people all over the world. This talented young lady has raised million of dollars for charities and environmental causes, choosing to remain humble considering her status.
She performs barefoot.
Angelina met a homeless, shoeless girl when she was six and after a long talk with the homeless girl, Angelina gave her shoes and vowed to perform barefoot until children all over the world had shoes. What a heart.
She walked to the small stage barefoot amidst the applause of her much older audience and if she was nervous, it didn’t show one bit.
Angelina takes her position, the piano coming in, and without hesitation she begins singing,
“Oh, my love, my darling
I’ve hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much”
It becomes apparent as to why this little lady became such a huge hit.
Her voice is unlike anything you would hear, especially from someone her age. There is depth, control, and a level of maturity that belies her small frame and childlike face.
Angelina sets the mood with a lower octave, matching the song’s slower, more solemn melody instantly bringing to mind the many versions of this classic hit. The thing with “Unchained Melody” is the tempo may be slow but the singer needs to have excellent control as the notes are dragged out for most parts which brings out the quality of one’s voice.
Angelina has amazing control.
Her audience is silent, their eyes fixed on the little girl in a white dress, listening to her enchanting voice as she fills the room with her talent. All this while performing barefoot. You can’t help but wonder if she feels cold.
Online viewers can’t get enough of her,
“Never in my life have I heard anything like her. She is incredible.”
says a man named Martin.
“An amazing rendition of this song. Her range of voice is getting broader and she is getting better and better.”
Observed another fan. And yes, Angelina has gotten better over the years.
It’s not everyday a child surprises her home country with so much talent, then wins a competition and goes on to become an international sensation. As if that weren’t enough, Angelina has written and illustrated a children’s book in Norway. The book is a success making her the youngest published author in the country’s history.
Her audience just bore witness to a prodigy and whether they knew it that time or not, were very fortunate to have seen her perform live.
They can look back now and be thankful that they saw the brilliant Angelina Jordan.
She ends her performance on a high note. Literally. She goes along with the piano, playing along with her voice eventually going higher up until the end. And just like the young girl that she is, instantly gives a sweet smile as they applaud the young talent that now continues to stun worldwide audiences with her magic.
