The 13-year-old Croatian teen who impressed in Hollywood earlier this year when she performed on NBC’s children’s talent show ‘Little Big Shots’, could be making her way back there…
Mia Negovetić hit the headlines earlier this year with her impressive performance on NBC’s children’s talent show ‘Little Big Shots’, the show is co-produced and created by Ellen DeGeneres and Steve Harvey.
Mia, from Rijeka on the northern Adriatic coast, burst onto the scene in Croatia after her rendition of the Croatian national anthem at the 20th Anniversary of Operation Storm Parade went viral in August last year. She then went on to win the first Croatian children’s singing contest Zvjezdice with her rendition of Beyonce’s Listen gathering over one million hits on YouTube. That led to her Little Big Shots producers tracking her down to invite her to Hollywood.
Her performance on Little Big Shots was a huge hit, and even captured the attention of some faces names, including popular American hip hop artist Lil Wayne who posted the video on his social media pages. Mia says that the offers have been flooding in ever since her American TV show debut. She has accepted an offer to appear in a synchronised cartoon, and a role in a Hollywood film could be around the corner.
“Film producers have called Mum and Dad and sent a script for a film they believe I would be ideal to play the lead role in. That would be very interesting as I love acting, along with singing of course,” Mia told Jutarnji list.
Mia will perform her first solo concert at Lisinski concert hall in Zagreb on 16 September 2016. It is the first time in history Zagreb’s Vatroslav Lisinski concert hall will hold a solo concert by a young teenage girl – complete with an orchestra and special guests.
