The “Got Talent” television series has spread throughout the world. With the age of the internet, individuals around the globe get to witness people from every country and learn about their amazing talents. For many, auditioning for their country’s version of “Got Talent” means getting a chance they never would have had otherwise.
That was exactly what happened to young Elena Brnić when she appeared on Supertalent in 2018.
Supertalent is the Croatian airing of the “Got Talent” series.
Elena was only 13 when she stepped onto the stage to perform Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song.” Dressed in a simple gray dress with white sneakers, she sang with poise and concentration. But it was clear right from the beginning that the judges were about to be blown away.
Elena’s voice is both sweet and powerful, with a range far beyond what most adults can reach.
Although her performance was void of any frills, it didn’t need them. Her voice stood on its own. By the time she was finished, the judges, her family backstage, and much of the audience were in tears.
One of the sweetest sights was the huge group of friends that had gathered to watch her audition.
They wore shirts emblazoned with her name and cheered her on as she sang. Many of them were moved to tears as well by Elena’s striking performance. Some of them even hugged one another and jumped up and down out of excitement for their friend.
And of course, the highlight of the audition was judge Maja Šuput, who was overcome with emotion. She immediately gave Elena her Golden Buzzer, which put her straight through to the Croatian semifinals.
What’s more, her performance went viral.
It was shared online more than 41,000 times and generated 5.5 million views. It must have been overwhelming for the 13-year-old from Zagreb since she had only ever performed in local shows.
And people around the world were impressed, pointing out her poise and of course, her powerful vocals.
“WOW!” wrote a YouTube commenter named Jacob Roberts. “Not only is she a wonderful singer, but she is also singing in a foreign language.”
It must be incredibly intimidating to perform a difficult song before a live audience on national television.
Although Elena had to perform a song that was not in her native language, her English pronunciation was remarkable. Only on certain words did her soft accent slip through. But that only lends her performance more charm.
“Your voice is a jewel,” wrote another YouTube commenter. “I hope you will reach your dreams. Love from France.”
Other comments poured in from all corners of the globe.
There was no doubt the young girl had a significant effect on the people who heard her voice. It was a perfect song for her and showed exactly how hard she was willing to fight for what she wanted. It’s no wonder her performance moved everyone, even the judges, to tears.
