Adorable Girl Sings Opera on ‘America’s Got Talent’ and She’s Pure Gold (VIDEO)
11-year-old Arielle Baril auditioned with “O Mio Bambino Caro” on America’s Got Talent and she was absolutely adorable!
Her voice earned her a golden buzzer from judge Heidi Klum and goes directly to the live shows. Congrats!
From our live blog:
She’s from Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, and she’s 11 years old (looks like a teenager though. And I don’t mean that as a slight either. She’s a lovely kid). She’s always loved to sing, and her mother has always supported her. Ariel is super nervous, but she’s also really excited to perform. She notes that her brother taught her and trained her to sing, and it all just blossomed from there. He’s hoping she pulls this off.
Aaaaand in one of the biggest surprises of the audition rounds, she launches into an operatic tune! I say surprising because she came across as a total pop singer in the making, but she delivers this absolutely GORGEOUS, soaring operatic vocal. It was otherworldly, to such an extent that it almost looks like she’s lip-syncing, because it’s so hard to believe the voice matches the appearance. But you can see the technique in what she’s doing, and there are subtleties in her vocal that pretty much rule out lip-syncing for me. Opera isn’t my cup of tea, but this was the audition of the night, in my opinion. Heidi gives her a standing ovation and the audience follows suit, bringing Arielle to tears.
