What a voice! Adorable 7-year-old Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja delivered a fantastic rendition of the national anthem before MLS fans. Malea Emma told a reporter that she really didn’t want to mess up “because it’s a really special song to America.”

Watch as star LA Galaxy player Zatlan smiles with approval and tweeted later: “MVP of the game!”

Her father had this to say about his daughter’s talent:

USA Today reports:

“She’s been singing forever. Basically, before she could speak. Always singing,” he said, adding that she sings in the shower or while doing homework without even knowing it. “Sometimes we have to tell her to be quiet.”

“She always gets nervous before every performance. I told her it’s fine to be nervous because you never show it,” her father said. “She’s actually very shy. And I tell her it’s fine however she does. It’s just good exposure and good experience.”
