The video below features an incredible singer named Angelina Jordan, who we have posted about multiple times before. Angelina was the 2014 winner of Norway’s Got Talent at only eight years old and she has appeared on shows like Steve Harvey’s Little Big Shots and performed for crowds at auditoriums all over the world.
Angelina’s rendition of “Fly Me To The Moon” has become her signature song. The song was written by Bart Howard in 1954, originally recorded by Kaye Ballard in 1960, but it didn’t become hugely popular until 1962 when Frank Sinatra made his own version of it.
And here’s an interesting bit of trivia: In addition to its popularity as a romantic ballad, “Fly Me to the Moon” has also gained recognition for its association with space exploration. In 1969, the song was played on the Apollo 11 mission as astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the moon.
In this video, Angelina (12 years old) is rehearsing the Quincy Jones arrangement of the song with an orchestra in London. I absolutely love this version of the song, and I’m pretty sure Ole Blue Eyes would heartily approve. This has to be one of the best of her recordings on the internet.
