Showbiz Nation LIVE! Interview with 13 Year Old Opera Singer LAURA BRETAN

13 year old opera singer and Chicago native LAURA BRETAN discusses her incredible journey on this past season’s America’s Got Talent, where she became a Top Ten Finalist. Laura kicked off season 11 of AGT, being featured on the very first audition episode and instantly won the crowd and judges over with her incredible performance of Nessun Dorma– so much that judge Mel B pressed the Golden Buzzer which sent Laura straight to the live show/quarterfinals!

Encouraged by her mother, Laura Bretan has been singing in church since she was a four-year-old girl. At age seven, while listening to Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty,” she realized she can sing in a different manner, however she continued to sing only Christian music.

A couple of years ago, in 2014, she started to listen to other genres and to learn some arias. She fell in love with classical music and has been an aspiring opera singer ever since. She believes she can touch people’s hearts with her voice and hopes she can inspire others, especially teenagers, to enjoy opera as much as she does after realizing that it is the most complex form of art. Her favorite composers are Giacomo Puccini and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Follow Laura on Twitter @TheLauraBretan
