Amira Willighagen performs Nella Fantasia during an 'Afrikaans is Groot' concert staged in South Africa in November 2016.
In an arrangement written especially for Amira, the performance begins with the majestic Ennio Morricone composition 'River' from the soundtrack to the movie 'The Mission'. This is then followed by Amira's rendition of Nella Fantasia which is based on the haunting melody known as 'Gabriel's Oboe' written by the same composer for the same movie.
Born 27 March 2004, Amira was 12 years old at the time of this performance.
Following her highly successful performances at the 'Classics is Groot' concerts held earlier in the year, Amira was invited back to the country to perform as a guest artiste at the eleven 'Afrikaans is Groot' concerts held during November 2016.
During the show, Amira sang a brief duet with Corlea Botha, together with other artists, during a rendition of a sacred piece known as 'Die Onse Vader' (The Lord's Prayer) and she also joined the whole group in the Finalé. Nella Fantasia was the only solo number performed.
The above performances are included in the DVD of the full show entitled 'Afrikaans is Groot 2016 - Dié Konsert'.
