A 7-year-old dominated the MLS Cup national anthem

Malea Emma has some serious pipes.

The ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ is a notoriously difficult song to sing, especially when you factor in the acoustics of a large stadium. That’s why it’s often butchered by even seasoned singers.

But 7-year-old Malea Emma absolutely killed it on Saturday.

If Emma looks familiar, that’s because she’s the same little girl who won the approval of none other than Zlatan Ibrahimovic ahead of a LA Galaxy game earlier this year. She also drew an applause from Lebron James when she sang at a Los Angeles Lakers game in November.

Her dream is apparently to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. It looks like she’s well on her way there.
