This Seven-Year-Old Kills A Chilling Rendition Of Billie Holiday’s Gloomy Sunday — Watch HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteInspirationCute Kidz

Just the simple fact that Norway's seven-year-old Angelina Jordan even knows this song blows us away.

But when you add to the fact that she totally OWNS IT, well, then we're on goose-bumps level! And we LOVE it on that level!!

Yes, this little girl did an INCREDIBLE rendition of Billie Holiday's Gloomy Sunday on Norway’s Got Talent and it's so hauntingly unbelievable, we had to see AND hear with our own eyes and ears.

She has said she speaks English well enough to understand the song, but she found it when looking for a jazz track that would put her to sleep.

Talking about her decision to do the song (yes, again, she's SEVEN YEARS OLD), she said:

“It was a night I could not sleep and my mom was stressed that I was awake long after midnight. Then I borrowed mum’s iPad where I would listen to jazz on YouTube before I fell asleep. Then came a picture of a beautiful lady screaming at the sky and closed eyes. I am talking about jazz queen Billie Holiday […]

“Every time I sang it, I felt something special about it, it’s hard to explain in words. When I sang it for my mom, she said that this song is nice, but it was incredibly sad song.”

Sad can be beautiful too.

Wow, we can't even believe the amount of talent this girl has at her age.

Such inspiration — watch (above)!
