The Voice

After struggling through Wikipedia's account of the tortured dissections by opera experts of Maria Callas's impossible-to-analyze voice, I felt myself like the man who, wearying of a discourse on astronomy, stumbled from the lecture hall to gaze in silent wonder at the night sky.

Here, Callas sings the role of a daughter pleading with her father not to allow a feud to separate her from the man she loves. "O mio babbino caro" ("Oh My Beloved Father") from Puccini's Gianni Schicchi.

Have you heard of Amira Willighagen, who won the 2013 Holland's Got Talent competition at the age of nine?
