  • Malea Emma sings the US national anthem prior to LA Galaxy's MLS match against Seattle Sounders

Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja, who on Twitter describes herself as a "singer, actor, model, & anthem girl", hit the field after winning a contest to sing the anthem at the Galaxy's match against the Seattle Sounders.

"I was thinking that I can not do anything wrong because it's a really special song to America", the 3-foot-9-inch youngster told ABC News.

-Emma's father, Arman, announced that she has started singing before she could speak.

If getting an entire stadium of people up on their feet isn't enough to prove this girl's performance was next-level wonderful then we don't know what is.

Her dream now? To sing with Christina Aguilera.

Trump went on to criticize Canadian officials and how they have negotiated during the recent NAFTA talks. Markets and business groups are openly fretting about the damage that a collapse could provoke.

The team also called Malea Emma's performance one of the best in the stadium's history.

But this is not Malea Emma's first brush with viral stardom. She said she practices with her dad every night and told CBS News that when she grows up she hopes to be a "singer, doctor, actress and violinist".

The game was between the L.A. Galaxy and Seattle Sounders, but a tiny 7-year-old and her mighty voice reigned supreme on the soccer pitch.

Before singing to Sunday's crowd, she practiced - singing to a lamp.
