5-Year-Old Belts Out 40 Year Old Classic Song And Simon Is Lost For Words
A little girl shocks all four judges of "America's Got Talent" and leaves the audience screaming in awe in this incredible video that has taken the internet by storm!
Five-year-old Sophie Fatu is a young veteran of the spotlight. Self-described as a "jazz singer, model, and actress" on her Facebook page, Sophie has appeared on NBC's "Little Big Shots," YouTube, and the "Ellen Degeneres Show" where she performed a rendition of "Fly Me To The Moon" by Frank Sinatra. Naturally, "America's Got Talent" was next in her sights.
The moment Sophie waddled onto the stage in her pink outfit and greeted the judges and audience, everyone melted at her adorable speaking voice. Not one person there was prepared for how cute Sophie was--not even Simon Cowell, a notoriously hard judge, who broke out in laughter at her entrance.
When Sophie Fatu began to sing, though, those expectations changed.
In the video, the girl opened with a powerful rendition of "My Way" by Frank Sinatra, raising her hands with the lyrics and performing it like she was ages older. The audience roared and cheered while the judges sat with their mouths wide open at what they were witnessing. Sophie Fatu held notes like a pro and conducted herself like an opera singer. No one thought a girl her age could do something as incredible as that!
In the end, Sophie got the approval from all four judges to move on to round two. Her mother, Victoria Fatu--an award-winning musician with her own popular YouTube channel and following--looked as proud as any parent could be when they both walked to the backstage.
