Having a singing talent is something that many of us yearn for. Even if you know that a life of fame and superstardom isn’t for you, imagine being able to entertain yourself with your own singing performances, instead of having your friends and family in tears of laughter at your karaoke attempts?
Many of the most famous singers started out just like me and you. There are even videos of Justin Bieber busking on the streets of Canada before he was talent spotted by his now-manager Scooter Braun.
Busking is definitely a great way to get noticed when you’re an aspiring celebrity singer, and one young girl who seems to be following the same path to success as some of the biggest names of today is Mia Black.
The 13-year-old started her singing career on the streets, and thanks to public support an the help of her father, Mia is heading onto big things.
According to Mia, singing is something that has always come naturally to her, even when she was very young. In an interview with One Song Magazine about her past as a singer, she said:
“My Dad once said I was humming in tune (in a very basic sense) with the speakerphone dial tone since when I was around 7 months old that was before I could even talk … I’ve been singing solo since age 7 at concerts, theatre Musicals, and weddings as a guest artist since then.”
But confidence didn’t come naturally to Mia, as it doesn’t for many singers. She continued to explain where she had built up her bravery to sing in front of crowds, saying:
“Definitely most of it has come from Galway busking, Galway is in the west of Ireland! The 1st time I busked was in August 2018, I was age 11. I was nervous at the beginning but after 2 or 3 times, busking became much easier.”
Mia started busking in 2018, and she hasn’t looked back since. Her beautiful voice captivates crowds, and people can’t help but stop to record videos or simply enjoy Mia’s music.
One of the best things about Mia’s performances is that she definitely doesn’t shy away from the more vocally challenging songs. One video shows her absolutely nailing John Legend’s “All of Me”, which is not something that we could all hope to succeed in replicating!
In the video, which is filmed by Mia’s father, we see Mia standing in the middle of a very crowded street with a microphone. She begins to sing, and it’s only minutes before people are stopping to listen.
Wearing a brown sweater with her hair pulled back into a ponytail, Mia isn’t here to put on a glitzy, glamorous performance. She’s here to sell her incredible singing voice – and the crowd can’t get enough.
As Mia sings, a few people stop to give her money, which is most definitely a perk of having a talent that you can take to the streets with. Perhaps this crowd thinks that she’s much more deserved of greater things than busking on the streets – and we’d have to agree.
Luckily, the powers of the internet have shone a light on Mia’s talents, and the YouTube video of her singing now has over two million views and more than three thousand comments. Online viewers are just as captivated by Mia’s voice, with one person commenting:
“She’s absolutely incredible such an amazing talent. She sounds like a pure angel!”
She’s certainly a star in the making. You can check out the video of Mia performing “All of Me” in Ireland below.
