Solomia Lukyanets is a 14 years old Ukrainian opera singer. She was born on April 24, 2001 in Kiev, where she lived her early childhood. Solomia currently lives in Berlin, Germany.
Solomia has claimed a lot of titles and won many competitions but she is mostly famous through her participation in The Voice Kids in its Ukrainian and German editions.
Despite her participation in The Voice Kids Germany not being her biggest career achievement in terms of titles and rankings (i.e. not making it to the semi finals); it is, in my personal opinion, the greatest stage (so far) of her very successful and very promising career.

It is easier for a singing prodigy to reach out to our hearts than it is for a Pianist or a Drummer. Why? because most of us can easily relate to one of our favorite songs, to the vocals of Whitney Huston or to the songs of our favorite modern artist; However, it takes a pianist or a classical music lover to appreciate the talent of a pianist.

Amira Willighagen is a prodigy opera singer from the Netherlands; Born on March 27, 2004, she managed to win the final of Holland’s Got Talent (2013) at the age of 9. Amira Willighagen is a perfect example of talent and genius, because she taught herself how to sing opera by watching Youtube videos. This might not seem like a big deal… but it is. Singing opera is the “Olympic level” of singing and one doesn’t simply become an Olympic Athlete by watching Youtube videos. Words can’t do justice to Amira’s talent, so please watch her audition to Holland’s Got Talent.

Jaxon Smith is a self taught, prodigy, Canadian Drummer. He was born on May of 2005, 3 and a half months pre-maturely but that is not why he is considered a prodigy. Jaxon is a prodigy because by the age of six and without any family musical history and without receiving any drumming lessons, he was brilliant enough to listen to songs, capture the beat in his mind and then play it afterwards, with any spoon, chopstick or drum-stick he could lay his hands on.
The first video I saw for Krisia is her cover song for “Simply the best” for Tina Turner. It is just amazing how well she has performed the song. I simply can’t believe that a 9 years old could sing this well. Even after watching all her videos, this video is still by far her best in my opinion.

Kelvin Doe was born in October 26, 1996 and he was raised by his mother alone… but let us go back a while. Before Kelvin was born, his mom, Ajua Daniel, traveled with her husband and four children to Liberia to work . However, the Liberian war broke out and all of them had to escape. Ajua and her children made it back to Siera Leane but her husband didn’t make it. Ajua, then met Kelvin’s dad and lived with him until she got pregnant. Kelvin’s dad asked her for abortion and once she refused, he abandoned her.
So again, Kelvin was raised by a his mom along with his 4 other siblings in one of the poorest countries in the world, Seirra Leone. I don’t know if you think your life is tough, but I think we can safely agree that Kelvin’s life as an infant and a teenager wasn’t easy at all.
