Singaporean Teen Absolutely Murders One of Christina Aguilera’s Most Difficult Songs

October 17, 2016
A teenager out in Australia has become quite the celebrity after appearing on “The X Factor: Australia”. 
Natalie Ong, 15, was originally born in Singapore and chose to perform Christina Aguilera’s “The Voice Within” during her audition. She sang in front of rapper Iggy Azalea and American Idol winners Adam Lambert and Guy Sebastian.
Needless to say, Ong’s performance was absolutely flawless and thoroughly impressed all the judges. I don’t know about you guys, but I think it’s safe to say that Christina Aguilera would be proud AF. Watch her epic performance below:

Ong has been living in Australia since she was 2 years old but regularly goes back to Singapore for visits. She thanked her Singaporean fans for their support in a recent video.
Her parents have also been so supportive that they gave up their catering business so that they could help Ong pursue her dream.
“My parents are so supportive of my dream… They simply encourage me to do what I love. My grandma is so supportive too,” she said.
Ong’s father, who’s now a full-time hairstylist, told Straits Times:
“I gave up everything in Singapore to start anew in Australia. It was very tough with no friends, no relatives but we are very happy as a family and we stick together as a family. Seeing her achievement today is really a miracle. It is all worth it.”
