A 7-Year-Old Local Named Malea Emma Is Taking The Nation By Storm

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!
