10-Year-Old Breaks Record for Youngest Opera Singer in the World

A new world record for the youngest opera singer has been set by Victory Brinker, a now-10-year-old girl from Latrobe, Pennsylvania, on March 28.

The record, just announced by Guinness World Records, was set when she was seven years and 314 days old, after participating in eight professional performances in 2019 at the Pittsburgh Public Theatre’s Lights and Legends show.

Victory, who can reach over three octaves and serenade her audience in seven different languages, also participated in season 16 of America’s Got Talent.

In the above video, Victory displays her incredible talent singing Der Holle Rache (Queen of the Night) from Mozart’s Magic Flute. As her mother Christine Brinker explains: “It’s considered one of the most difficult arias for a coloratura soprano as it has some of the very highest notes and few can sing it.” Credit: Christine Brinker via Storyful
