7-Year-Old Girl Covers Billie Holiday on ‘Norway’s Got Talent’
Forget teeny-boppers like Justin Bieber or One Direction … 7-year-old Angelina Jordan Astar is a Billie Holiday fan!
The little girl performed the jazz legend’s 1941 classic cover, “Gloomy Sunday,” for her audition on Norway’s Got Talent … and to say it was impressive would be an understatement.
Little Angelina, with her missing teeth, wild hair, and bare feet, effortlessly (and beautifully) sang the lyrics, which are pretty dark for a kid her age: “Gloomy is Sunday / With shadows I spend it all / My heart and I / Have decided to end it all / Soon there’ll be candles / And prayers that are said I know.”
Why “Gloomy Sunday?” “Every time I sang it, I felt something special about it,” Angelina told the judges. “It’s hard to explain.”
