Aug 01, 2020
Walking through a city, passersby become accustomed to background noise, chatter, and vehicle sounds. It is not unusual for an aspiring artist to sing, play an instrument, or perform on a street corner to garner attention toward their goal of stardom. Despite all these distractions, the voice of an 11-year-old singing 'Can't Help Falling in Love' alongside busy city-goers can easily manage to catch the attention of pedestrians as they pass by. Especially if the 11-year-old happens to be as talented as Mia, an aspiring young singer from Ireland.
Originally written in 1961 for Elvis Presley's hit movie 'Blue Hawaii,' 'Can't Help Falling in Love' quickly gained popularity and rose to the top of charts across the nation. In the 1970s, it became the tune Elvis regularly used to close his concerts. Inspiring covers from around the world, an 11-year-old from Ireland decided to give this song a shot as well.
Mia is an aspiring singer, who has been sharing her talent across social media. Gaining quite the following through these outlets, Mia has also traveled across the country performing a wide array of cover songs and classic hits. Since achieving over 5 million views on YouTube alone, this 11-year-old decided to display her soothing voice on the streets of Ireland.
While this phrase is often overused, Mia's delightful voice is nothing less than 'music to our ears.' As this youngster belts out the lyrics to 'Can't Help Falling in Love," we cannot help but fall in love with her unique voice as it flows to our soul.
There is no doubt that Mia has a talent that most of us simply do not have, and to see her use it to entertain people on the streets of Ireland is simply amazing. Seeing younger artists pay homage to songs of the past and classical tunes is refreshing and rejuvenating. The love that artists like Mia show for songs that were created decades before they were born is a beautiful thing to see.
