When you are just 13 and your singing performance draws praise from one of the best-selling artists of all time it must be a good feeling. Croatian teenage sensation Mia Negovetić knows what it feels like…
Mia, from Rijeka on the northern Adriatic coast, recently starred in NBC’s Little Big Shots, an American children’s talent television show, and her rendition of Beyonce’s Listen was a huge hit. It even captured the attention of popular American hip hop artist Lil Wayne.
Lil Wayne, who passed Elvis Presley as the male with the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with 109 songs, and has sold over 100 million records worldwide, posted a link to Mia’s performance on his Facebook page, which has over 50 million followers.
Accompanied with the simple caption ‘WOW’, the post has already attracted close to 10,000 likes.
The YouTube clip of Mia singing has already been viewed over 2.5 million times.
