The 7-year-old girl who went viral for her performance of “Let It Go” from a bomb shelter in Ukraine amazes the world with yet another performance. This time it is Ukraine’s national anthem.
Amelia Anisovych is now safe in Poland after being evacuated from Kiev, where her spontaneous appearance took place from a bunker. This week, a benefit concert for her country called “Together With Ukraine” brought artists from Poland and Ukraine to raise funds for the aid organization Polish Humanitarian Action. Anisovych took the stage there to perform an acapella interpretation of Ukraine’s national anthem.
You can see her performance in the video here and above.
Amelia Anisovych appeared for the first time “Let It Go” from the Disney hit “Frozen” earlier this month while sheltering in a bomb shelter in Kiev. Her performance quickly spread around on social media and earned worldwide support – including from some of the “Frozen” team.
Idina Menzel, who played Elsa in “Frozen” and is the original voice behind the hit earworm, resubmitted the video with the message: “See you. We see you really, really. “
Later, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, one half of the songwriting duo responsible for the song, also chimed in.
“Dear little girl with the beautiful voice, my husband and I wrote this song as part of a story about healing a family in pain,” Anderson-Lopez tweeted. The way you sing it is like a magic trick that spreads the light in your heart and heals everyone who hears it. Keep singing! We listen!”
Anderson-Lopez also highlighted that the little girl was singing the song in Russian at the time, which changed the lyrics a bit, but they were still as powerful as ever. You can see the original performance here.
