7-Year-Old Slays The Hell Outta National Anthem at MLS Game, MUST WATCH!

Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja is just seven years old, not that you'd know that just listening to her voice.

"I was thinking that I can not do anything wrong because it's a really special song to America", Malea Emma told ABC News Monday.

It was clear from the opening notes that Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja was nailing it. She has already performed at Carnegie Hall and recently took the stage at the Hollywood Bowl.

-She dreams of one day singing with Christina Aguilera. The Galaxy held a contest on social media to find someone to a sing the anthem, according to ABC - and when Malea Emma's father told her she won, she was overjoyed.

"She's been singing forever, basically before she could speak", her dad, Arman Tjandrawidjaja, told USA Today. Which is exactly what happened on Sunday when a 7-year-old shocked the crowd at an LA Galaxy game with a stunning rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.

CBS News asked if it comes easy to her, but she said it takes work.

Before she books that gig, she will again be singing the national anthem, but this time at Staples Center before a Lakers game in November.
