Amazing 12-Year-Old Opera Singer Stuns on America’s Got Talent (VIDEO)
12-year-old Opera singer Arielle Baril wowed the judges on America’s Got Talent 10, “Live Show 2”!
Arielle sings “Pie Jesu” by Andrew Lloyd Weber, and it’s absolutely breathtaking. Seriously, between the smooth, controlled vocals and the orchestral arrangement (complete with full choir), this performance was spellbinding. Unfortunately, the orchestra drowns Arielle out completely in places. But the parts we can hear are gorgeous, in my opinion. She has great vocal control, and considerable power to her voice. Just not enough to overcome the volume of the arrangement.
Watch the video below:
Judges: Heidi says if she had another Golden Buzzer, she’d push it again. She thought this was a solid performance. Mel B can’t believe she’s only 12-years-old with no formal training, saying she sings beautifully. Howie feels Arielle has a long career ahead of her, and is beautiful inside and out. Howard says his wife and daughter are here, and he wants to go give them a hug right now, because Arielle’s voice makes him want to love. Heidi obliges him by giving him a big hug, in an endearing little moment. Nick asks Arielle where that love comes from, and she says it all comes from her family, naturally.
