This 7-year-old has serious soul.

Angelina Jordan Astar recently wowed the audience of Norway's Got Talent with her rendition of Billie Holiday's "Gloomy Sunday."

The little girl stepped onto the show's stage with a mouthful of missing teeth, yet she crooned the jazz classic with the maturity and wisdom of an old soul. Moved by Astar's mighty voice, several of the audience members broke into tears, reports 9 News. The child star received a standing ovation from the crowd and was sent on to the next round of competition.



The tiny jazz lover told the judges she selected the song after happening upon it during a YouTube search.

"Every time I sang it, I felt something special about it," Astar said. "It's hard to explain."
