Amira Willighagen received a particularly exciting gift for her 10th birthday last week: a copy of her first album, titled simply Amira.
Her album includes the two Puccini arias she sang to win Holland's Got Talent in December, "O Mio Babbino Caro" and "Nessun Dorma," as well as nine other songs including "Ave Maria."
Amira recorded the album in England on the Syco label for Sony Music Entertainment. Syco is the label of star-maker Simon Cowell, who gave the world America's Got Talent and all of its amazingly tacky spinoffs in other countries.
Amira's album is currently available for download only in Holland. In the U.S., her CD will be available on Amazon.com come April 8.
