Some people are just born to sing, and that’s definitely true for 12-year-old country newcomer Tegan Marie. That’s right, this vocal powerhouse is only 12 years old, but you’ll have a hard time believing that once you hear her very mature delivery of Florida Georgia Line’s latest hit, “H.O.L.Y.” The video has already racked up more than 8.4 million views on Facebook in the few days since she posted it online.

If you remember the shock we all felt when a 13-year-old LeAnn Rimes first hit the country scene with “Blue” back in the mid-’90s, then you’ll appreciate how rare a talent we’ve got in Tegan. She just looks into the camera with all the confidence in the world and sings her heart out.

Tegan recently made her big debut at the 2016 CMA Music Festival in Nashville where she wowed an audience at The Listening Room venue in downtown Nashville.

Before she appeared at CMA Fest, Tegan was on the bill for the Children’s Miracle Network Telethon in her hometown of Flint, Michigan to help with the ongoing water crisis in the town. Her performance helped raise more than $9,000 for the local children’s hospital during the event.

On top of that, Tegan is donating all of the proceeds from her new single, titled “Lucky Me,” to help with the water crisis.

You heard it here first. Between her big voice and her big heart for charity, we’re thinking this is just the start of a lot of great things for Tegan Marie.
