Imagine being in the second grade and winning over an arena full of people!
It’s been Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja‘s dream to be a world-known singer. After blowing fans away with her performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” Malea may just be one step closer to achieving her goals. At an L.A. Galaxy match versus the Seattle Sounders, the tiny 7-year-old took over the show with her mighty voice and has since been a viral sensation.
Last week, the Galaxy announced on social media that Malea Emma had won its first-ever #GalaxySocial contest giving her the opportunity to sing the national anthem during a game. Tjandrawidjaja practiced non-stop with her father every night before her appearance in front of a live crowd.
On Wednesday morning Malea Emma told Ryan Seacrest that when she grows up she wants to be a singer, actress, doctor, pianist, and a violinist!
Be on the lookout for the next young star on the rise!
