It’s hard to believe that this powerful and captivating voice is capable of coming out of such a tiny child, but it’s part of the reason 7-year-old singer Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja continues to stun fans at sporting events.
She first went viral back in September when she won an online contest and was picked to sing the anthem for at a Los Angeles Galaxy game, and a couple months later, she was invited to return to MLS to perform at the MLS Cup game between Atlanta United and the Portland Timbers.
Her latest performance was Saturday at Auto Club Speedway in California ahead of the NASCAR XFINITY Series’ Production Alliance Group 300.
Malea Emma’s voice is incredible, mature and mesmerizing as she flawlessly belts out one of the most challenging songs. And she, again, amazed anyone listening.
She has also received invitations from the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers, the Golden State Warriors and NHRA drag racing. In December, she told USA TODAY Sports that her “biggest dream is to sing at the Super Bowl” and was invited to by the Dodgers to perform at the World Series, but it was too late for her bedtime.
Last year, she also sang a beautiful duet with Jennifer Hudson on Good Morning America.
