    Now that you know she has pipes, you should also know that she's FIERCE AS FUCK.

    Just look at her casually layin' on some music like the gorgeous diva she is.

    She is also a selfie QUEEN.

    Some people are insanely talented and some people are crazy beautiful. She is BOTH.

    Shhh... she's singing circles around you.

    Her version of "I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story is incredible.

    She's not afraid to serve you some serious face.

    But if you're lucky, she'll grace you with her radiant smile.

    And you can further bless your ears by listening to her version of "Frühlingsstimmen." Can your favs sing like that? No. They can't.
