At just 10 years old, Byron Public School student Amanuael Visser wowed the community and the country when he sang English songstress Adelle’s hit Rolling In The Deep on last Sunday’s episode of the refurbished Young Talent Time.

From the judging panel, Tina Arena said that though the song presented the lad with a tough challenge, he handled it really well.

‘Amanuael, you were so beautiful tonight,’ said Ms Arena in her critique of the song. ‘I loved your performance. You have a beautiful stage presence.’

Though Amanuael didn’t win on the night, he is hoping for the chance to get into the final as a wildcard performer. He is hoping to hear in the next few days the outcome of a public vote, which might give him the chance to strut his stuff again on the Sydney stage.
