YouTube 8-Year Old Singing Sensation: 2 Million Hits & Growing

YouTube initially founded back in 2005, is now being used globally for uploading, sharing and viewing of video content. For an 8-year old girl in America her dreams have come true with the help of the site.

We are talking about a little girl Elizabeth Hughes from Chesapeake who at the recent Admirals hockey game in Norfolk’s Scope sung her heart out to a crowd of onlookers. The stadium which holds in access of 12,600 people was holding a game against The Charlotte Checkers. The Admirals lost against their rivals but along with this, the main talking point was that of Hughes performance singing the national anthem “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Unfortunately during her performance as abcnews.go.com reported, the microphone cut out leaving her in a dilemma. To everybody’s amazement, the little girl with a amazing soprano voice kept on to finish the rest of the song, along with as The Daily Mail reported, the involvement of the crowd. They stood up and joined in whilst Elizabeth’s mother Dorothy looked on. To catch the experience, she took footage on her mobile phone and posted it onto YouTube.

Since Tuesday night until this morning (Friday) the video has seen some 2 million hits. Consequently following her performance, Elizabeth has been contacted by other’s wishing to interview her and listen to her sing once again, including that of CBS and their “Early Show,” and cable TV show “Inside Edition.”

If you haven’t seen her sing, check out the video below and let us know what you think? Or failing that, listen to her sing on February 5 at the next Admirals game.

    That little girl was amazing, never missed a beat when the mic died, even if the crowd did!! I was there and it was a joy to get to listen to her. Best of luck in the future, and hopefully on Feb 5 we get to hear her amazing voice again!! BTW, the Admirals were not playing the Charlotte Checkers, but Hartford, the Whale, and the Admirals smoked them 5-2!!
