It was an incredible rendition from the fifth grader out of Miami Beach South Pointe Elementary.

“Oh my God, I was so nervous. My stomach was ‘urrr’ and then I was like this is my time. I made here, I’ll do it,” she said after the performance. “So I went on the field, my sister was actually right in front of me, and I was just very happy because I knew that my friends were at home watching me on TV. I just sang my heart out,” she said.
