WATCH: Seven-year-old Malea Emma stuns MLS crowd with rendition of national anthem

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Appearances sure can be deceiving. For instance, you’d never suspect seven-year-old Malea Emma of possessing the voice of a goddess just by looking at her.

But boy, can she belt out the notes.

Check out this gold-star performance by the pint-sized phenom ahead of Sunday’s Los Angeles Galaxy game against the Seattle Sounders at StubHub Center.

This is rare talent. Not only does she possess a powerful voice, but she soaks those notes with feeling and emotion in a way that’s uncommon among someone so young.

And just maybe, Malea Emma is a good luck charm, too. The Galaxy beat the Sounders on Sunday, 3-0, handing Dominic Kinnear his first victory as the team’s interim coach.
