Who Is Emanne Beasha? New Details On 10-Year-Old Opera Singer Who Got Golden Buzzer On 'AGT'

If you were to only listen to the final act from America’s Got Talent on Tuesday night, you would have likely believed the singer performing was an adult woman, but this girl is 10-year-old Emanne Beasha. After performing a remarkable opera song, the 10-year-old stunned America’s Got Talent judges with her incredible voice, earning herself a golden buzzer and a spot in the semi-finals!

The young singer's song choice was opera song “Ebben,” which allowed her to showcase her ability to hit high notes in a way that seemed truly unbelievable. Beasha told Entertainment Tonight that the moment was so crazy, she was able to tune out the audience and put her complete focus into her performance. 

Entertainment Tonight’s Denny Directo interviewed Beasha backstage, “who said that while her biggest inspirations come from classical opera, she still has some favorite contemporary artists she loves to listen to as well.”
