First-grader Veronica was only 7-years-old when she sang on her church’s stage.

At the beginning of the video, you can see Veronica playing with the flowers like a regular 7-year-old. What she does next though, is far from typical. Suddenly, she starts to sing “Hallelujah” and her voice is very good, especially for her young age.

Guitar player and church member, Ben Bross, is sitting beside Veronica playing the chords of the famous song. The voice of an angel fills the room, as she effortlessly delivers a memorable religious version.

Far beyond her years, the talented little girl surprises everyone with her vocals.

Veronica is still in her school uniform, with messy hair as if she just came in from recess. The last thing you expect is for the child to start showcasing this kind of singing ability.
