MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - More than two million views were received after the video of the young singer performing Dinah Washington's, "What A Difference A Day Makes," was uploaded on YouTube.
Many left comments on how they loved her voice and performance; some even posted she is the younger version of singer Amy Winehouse. Angelina wore a beehive-style hair, which is popularly worn by the late singer, adorned with pink and red roses.
"She reminds me of Amy Winehouse so much it's painful," wrote one in YouTube. Another commented she would have been the child of Bjork and Winehouse, considering her voice and technique.
The sensational viral performance was shot at the fortress in Halden, Norway with two backing singers opening up the song. The audience applauded as Angelina joined in; she remained calm and composed despite the cheers of hundreds in the open area.
The young singer appeared to get lost in the song, unaffected by the applause, as her eyes were closed while gripping the microphone, wearing a pale pink dress standing bare foot on stage.
Angelina Jordan first captivated Norwegians in 2014 during the competition of Norwegian Talents, the counterpart of the original British TV show, where she won the grand price after performing a sultry rendition of Billy Holiday's Summertime.
She is the youngest crowned winner of the contest, receiving 46 percent of the votes.
