Looks can be deceiving! Take, for one example the Jordan-born, Florida native Emanne Beasha, who was crowned the winner of Arabs Got Talent 2017.
The 10-year-old, opera-singing kid stepped onto America’s Got Talent stage Tuesday night, August 6, 2019, and belted out Lucio Dalla's "Caruso," a challenging opera piece which she admitted was the "hardest song I’ve ever done."
If you closed your eyes for a moment, the talented Emanne could've been an experienced stage star. Yes, looks can be deceiving!
The youngster’s command and range caught the judges by surprise. By the end, everyone in the room was either smiling, whistling or crying. All were standing.
"To have a voice like this," Simon Cowell, one of the judges remarked, "this is not something you can train to get. It genuinely is a gift."
Guest judge Jay Leno was feeling it. "I feel like I'm a witness to something special. At some point in my career, people will say, 'what do you remember most?' I remember hitting the golden buzzer." And that's what he did, fast-tracking Beasha on to the quarter-finals live shows.
On her Instagram official account, Emanne posted a photo that captioned, "Indescribable feeling. I will remember this moment for the rest of my life."
While America's Got Talent Facebook official page posted a video of Emanne that captioned, "Emanne Beasha is only ten years old, but you would never know that from the sound of her sensational vocal range.
Jay Leno is going to remember this Golden Buzzer moment forever!"
