If getting an entire stadium of people up on their feet isn’t enough to prove this girl’s performance was next-level amazing then we don’t know what is.

Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja is just seven years old, not that you’d know that just listening to her voice.

After winning a competition to sing the American national anthem at a Major League soccer match in Los Angeles, Malea’s incredible rendition has stunned the internet.

The LA Galaxy team shared the video as a “must watch” on their Twitter account and it’s since had over 3.5 million views.

Malea’s parents said in an interview with FOX that the youngster was singing before she could even talk. And when asked what she wants to be when she grows up she has big goals.

“I want to be a doctor, and a singer, and a pianist and a violinist,” she told the news service.

She’s become a viral sensation with people across the world commenting on her amazing voice.

Malea won the Galaxy’s anthem-singing contest on social media, ABC News reports.

The club has since dubbed her a “Club legend”.
