You might remember seeing seven-year-old Amelia Anisovych sing Let It Go from a bunker in Kyiv, Ukraine. When she sang the Disney song beloved by so many youngsters, everybody stopped to listen. Hearts melted across the globe as we heard her sweet, but very powerful, voice belt out the famous lyrics in her native Ukrainian.

Happily Amelia was able to flee Kyiv and get to Poland with her family. And now she is using her voice again to send a powerful message of hope and strength.

The little songstress took to the stage at the Atlas Arena in Lodz at a concert organized in support of Poland called “Together with Ukraine.” In front of thousands of concert-goers, the little girl sang with all her heart, and all her might, the Ukrainian national anthem. And as she so beautifully enunciated each word, you could hear her willing her fellow country-men and women on in their battle for their homeland.

There have been so many inspiring stories coming out of this conflict, and while it is so lovely to hear the dulcet tones of Amelia, we pray that she will be able to resume the life of a 7-year-old as quickly as possible, along with all the people affected by this war.
