Six-year-old American girl sings Irish national anthem
A six-year-old American girl beautifully performed the Irish national anthem in front of hundreds of people at a family wedding.
The video has been posted online, but very little is known about the young singer, However, she has still won the hearts of thousands with her charming rendition of Amhrán na bhFiann, known in English as the Soldier’s Song.
The girl is attending what appears to be a family wedding when she goes up to the front and begins singing in front of the hundreds of guests.
The room falls silent as she belts out the Irish anthem, before they crowd erupts in cheers and applause.
The girl then hands her microphone to a man who informs the guests that she is “just six years old”.
One guest smartly recorded the performance on his mobile phone. Although the footage is a little shaky to begin with, it is well worth watching to hear the mini-star’s brave performance.
Take a look at the video below.

Irish songs and dances are not unusual at weddings in America. There are an estimated 30 million people in America with Irish heritage, and most are extremely proud of their family history.
One Irish American also made a big impression at his friend’s wedding was best man Matt Gunn who gave a comical speech to the family and friends of his Italian American groom.
In Ireland, the last few years has seen a trend of the best men and the maids of honour performing their speeches as h humorous songs, often with lyrics that have the groom squirming in their seats.
