Thirteen-year-old Laura simply dominated her auction for the first season of The Voice Kids Germany. She chose to sing Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You,” , which was popularized by Whitney Houston in the 1992 movie “The Bodyguard”, and totally nails it. When she was done, two of the judges felt one hit of the button wasn’t enough, and continued to bash on it as the last notes of the song trailed off. Then, one of the judges, Tim Bendzko Wehland, invited her over and let her sit in his seat while they talked to her. He told her that she wasn’t supposed to sing this song because it was “unsingable,” but she did a fantastic job.
The judges were all vying for her attention, but she ultimately decides that girls need to stick together and chose Lena Meyer-Landrut to be her coach. I’m not sure how far she got, but it appears she wasn’t the winner of that season. Despite the disappointment in not making it all the way, it is hard to deny that this young girl is simply full of talent. Check out the video and see what you think for yourself.
