Angelina Jordan Astar's cover of legendary jazz singer Billie Holiday's 1941 classic "Gloomy Sunday" is utterly haunting. Astar auditioned to be contestant No. 7008 on "Norway's Got Talent" and left one Norwegian judge in tears.
Astar, age 7, shares the same achy rasp as Holiday, while she stands barefoot onstage in a simply sweet pure white dress with long, straggly black hair.
According to News.com.au, Astar said that she "understood [the song] very well." "I felt something special about it, it's hard to explain in words," she further explained. "When I sang it for my mum, she said that this song is nice, but it was incredibly sad song.”
This performance will make your heart hurt in a good way. Grab tissues before you watch the clip above.
