Thirteen-year-old Laura Bretan is so sweet in her interview, and maybe a little nervous, as she takes the America’s Got Talent stage. When she starts to sing, it’s one of those jaw-dropping, getting the chills kind of things. The crowd and the judges watch on in astonishment. In addition to her powerful pipes, her voice is amazingly beautiful.
The room is filled with emotion and everyone is on their feet. Judge Simon Cowell said, “I have never heard anything like that in all the years I’ve been doing this show. Seriously. It was unbelievable.”

Personally, I don’t know a thing about opera and I have no idea what words she’s singing, but I can feel it in my heart. Her song transcends genre and language. As she sings the triumphant end, I feel uplifted.
