Amellia’s talents first went viral earlier this month, when a woman staying in a Kyiv bomb shelter met Amellia and asked her to sing for those seeking safety. The girl launched into an impressive and impassioned performance of “Let It Go,” her blonde hair braided behind her like the “Frozen” queen Elsa.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper, reporting from Ukraine, was left nearly speechless after introducing Amellia’s “Frozen” song footage this month.
“It’s hard to say anything after that except thank you, Amellia,” he said. “Thank you for that grace.”
It wasn’t immediately clear when Amellia evacuated Ukraine and arrived in Poland. The BBC reported that she’s staying with her grandmother in the host country.
