Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja, the girl who made jaws drop for her epic national anthem performances, has gone viral again, but this time for her cover of “Dance Monkey” from Australian artist Tones and I.

The Indonesian American 8-year-old has impressed her followers with her singing voice as a family member accompanies her on the piano, according to Daily Mail.

Toni “Tones and I” Watson, who became a viral sensation in 2019, topped the charts in more than 20 countries for her single “Dance Monkey.” In the United Kingdom, the artist holds the record as being the longest-running No. 1 single by a female artist, beating out Rihanna and Whitney Houston.

Malea started singing at the age of 3 and always loved singing since she was an infant. She was featured on many American TV shows, including American Idol, Good Morning America and CNN.


She was also filmed covering Christina Aguilera’s 2002 single “Fighter” when she was only 6 years old.
