Billie Holiday fans almost couldn't believe what they were hearing on the reality show Norway’s Got Talent. When Angelina Jordan, a 7-year-old singer, came on stage and performed Holiday’s hit, the judges were tearing up and social media shared the music with the world. According to the Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday, the song has gone viral as everyone wants to hear the music and see the video.

When the petite singer comes on stage for the competition, it’s obvious the judges think this just might be a typical audition. However when the music starts and the youngster opens her mouth the 1941 jazz hit sounds like it did the first time it was sung by Billie Holiday. Gloomy Sunday has always been a favorite for the fans of Billie Holiday and hearing it on stage live once again was amazing.

Angelina Jordan auditioned for the reality competition but as competitions go, there is no guarantee that the young star will win. She has captured the hearts of fans everywhere and there is no doubt this kid will be seen again. Whether that might be the winner on Norway’s Got Talent or The Ellen Show in America (or we hope both) has yet to be decided.

Take a look at the video clip of Angelina Jordan performing on Norway’s Got Talent. Doesn't she sound beautiful?
