This is one of the most amazing things I have witnessed, so much talent for one so young.

Victory Brinker discovered the opera at age 6, and that’s when she knew she wanted to become an opera singer.

In two days, Victory learned her first aria and three weeks later, won her first ever talent show.

You have got to hear this young woman sing.

Performing in 13 talent shows that year, she won a total of 12.

The following year, Victory began learning arias in seven languages, going on to perform at festivals and sporting events all over the country.

Victory Brinker’s AGT audition had her singing “Juliet’s Waltz” from the opera Roméo et Juliette.

All four judges and host Terry crews were moved by her performance that they pressed the Golden Buzzer together, sending young Victory to the quarterfinals.

And it’s really not that hard to see why.

“I love the challenge of the difficult arrangements, the technique required to sing, all the runs, and the different languages all the arias are written in.” she says.

Victory can reach over three octaves.

She also serenades audiences in seven different languages.

This is “Queen of the Night(Der Hölle Rache)”, and it has to be one of the world’s most difficult pieces to sing. But not for Brinker.

Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen” (“Hell’s vengeance boils in my heart”) is set in a terrifying D minor.

This aria is unforgettable thanks to its extraordinarily wide and demanding two octave vocal range.

Mozart wrote it with his sister-in-law, Josepha Hofer, in mind.

Hofer herself was known for her extraordinary upper register.

Victory Brinker sings it as if she’s like one of us ordinary folk singing in the shower or the car.

Except we can’t sing this aria. Not even in our wildest dreams.

This viewer captures her performance by saying,

“OMG. She has such a full, rich voice. I have seen some talented children perform this aria, and some of them may do better with the highest notes, but her voice is darker and fuller than it has any right to be, and she does something no other child has ever done in my experience: her performance is full of emotion. The rage is there. Victory Brinke IS the Queen of the Night. I hope I live long enough so see her mature into the magnificent opera singer she is going to be.”

Let’s repeat that. Victory Brinker IS the Queen of the Night!

Her range, power, and control are truly mind blowing for a young girl her age.

You could travel all over the world and watch different versions of this opera but Victory’s rendition will still be in your head.

Victory’s talent is innate, but she constantly works and trains hard by dedicating 45 minutes to an hour each day practicing with her mom.

She wants to prove to the world that the big stage needs her. Victory is hungry.
