Certainly a very powerful voice in a tiny young girl.

I prefer this one, I think this girl is genius:

I never expected that a small girl can do this!

Fake? Aug 15, 2010

If you move your head so much like in this recording the voice would change too. You can experience this in karaoke. So this does not sound natural to me. A bit like Who's talkin now?

agree with both of you Aug 15, 2010

The stage performance looks VERY fake.

Her voice seems much more natural on the home recording, but with very little power.

I tend to think that the stage performance is a recording of her own voice, but with lots of processing.

Depend what kind of microphone and which equipment you use, and in this case is absolutely possible (has a lot of compressor too).

Thank you so much for sharing this. I have listened 5 times already. The girl is real. Very beautiful interpretation too. Her sensitivity is extraordinary.

Not "fake" Aug 15, 2010

Her voice is so pure and natural, not like the other little girl, Bianca, who is more of a "Broadway belter."

Not fake... Aug 16, 2010

...but every time I see a child performing as an adult (just see how unnaturally measured every movement, pose, and position is in her during and after the performance) I cannot help wondering how much of that is natural talent and how much was imposed to her with hard work and unkind gestures, to limits that will be damaging for this person's mental health in the long run. We have seen enough examples of kids with ruined lives as a result of being the moment's "natural wonder" (BTW: the only mentally healthy natural wonder I know is Steve Wonder).

Yes, that's true.

Another problem is that, more often than not, we see parents of these kids treating them as some kind of long-term business investment. That's a pressure that shouldn't be imposed on a small child.

On the other hand, you can't do anything to deny/ignore a true talent. It will find its own way to open up to the world. It's those kids that will be driven by their talent and won't be able to stop practicing, because it's an essential part of them. That's another logical perspective.
