Seven-year-old's epic national anthem stuns the internet

Seven-year-old's epic national anthem stuns the internet

Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja belted out "The Star-Spangled Banner" in front of more than 25,000 spectators gathered to see the LA Galaxy take on the Seattle Sounders Sunday night at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles.

Malea Emma has been singing since she was 1, her parents told ABC News.

Emma proved to be a good luck charm for Ibrahimovic, as he scored his 501st career goal, and 18th of the season, to help seal a 3-0 win for Galaxy over the Seattle Sounders.

Following her knockout performance, social media erupted with praise and disbelief over the second-grader's natural talent. "She's been singing forever, basically before she could speak", her father, Arman Tjandrawidjaja, told USA Today. "Sometimes we have to tell her to be quiet".

Michael Avenatti claims there is a third woman with allegations against Kavanaugh
Julie Swetnick , 55, became the third person to call out Brett Kavanaugh , 53, of inappropriate sexual misconduct on September 26. Swetnick has so far not spoken to reporters, so her declaration is now the only public account of this incident.

It was clear from the opening notes that Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja was nailing it.

A representative for the Galaxy told ABC News on Monday that it was the first time the team had held a social-media contest to find a national anthem singer.

Though she may be just 7 years old, Malea has already gained more than 14,000 followers on Instagram.
