One of the judges, Lena Meyer-Landru, was so touched by Solomia and her angelic voice that she couldn’t hold back her tears.
Solomia continues to belt out the operatic tune and the judge couldn’t help but weep. The entire room was just enveloped by her gorgeous voice. Of course, as the song goes on, it crescendos into a mind-blowing chorus that is beautiful beyond words.
The young girl gives it her all when the powerful chorus hits and that’s enough to sell her voice to another judge who hits their button to turn around. Every single person that sees Solomia is completely bewildered by how mature and mighty her voice was!
