Angelina Jordan is the world’s newest star. While Justin Bieber may have found fame and fortune on YouTube and Susan Boyle found fame on a television talent show, Jordan is riding high on both mediums as her incredible singing talent skyrockets her to fame. At only 8 years of age, Jordan – from Norway - is making beautiful noise across the Internet with videos of her performing some demanding classic vocal works, according to People magazine on Wednesday.
There is a late night show in Norway called Senkveld. Jordan appeared on the show in March and performed a Frank Sinatra-classic song, according to the Huffington Post published Thursday. Her jazzy-styled rendition of “Fly Me to the Moon” blew people away and was just the most recent performance that pushed her career forward. Though she is eight-years-old now, she was only 7-years-old in March when she performed on the show. In the two months since she performed on the show, the video is net nearly 4 million views.
She wasn’t discovered on the late night show “Senkveld,” however. She was discovered in a television program called “Norway’s Got Talent” (“Norske Talenter”). Angelina Jordan is being praised for being a contemporary throwback to the days when songs were songs and jazz voices were truly jazz voices. Yet, she has done more contemporary-styled songs which have caught fire on the Internet as well. She killed it with her rendition of Cher’s “Bang, Bang, My Baby Shot Me Down.”
