Malea Emma sings the US national anthem prior to LA Galaxy's MLS match against Seattle Sounders

Tjandrawidjaja blew fans away with her powerful rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner before Sunday's MLS game between the LA Galaxy and the Seattle Sounders.

That's exactly what young Malea Emma enjoyed after her remarkable performance of the U.S. national anthem before LA Galaxy's home game on Sunday evening.

"I was thinking that I can not do anything wrong because it's a really special song to America", the 3-foot-9-inch youngster told ABC News. Tjandrawidjaja's performance was the result of winning a Galaxy anthem contest, according to the soccer club. "She's been singing forever, basically before she could speak", her father, Arman Tjandrawidjaja, told USA Today. Malea Emma has several videos posted on her website, including performances of Aretha Franklin's "Think" and Radiohead's "Creep".

Ernesto Valverde perplexed by Barcelona's defeat at Leganes
Real Madrid failed to capitalise on Barca's shock defeat after being humbled by Sevilla at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. Sometimes it's hard to explain the things that happen in a game.

Emma won by a landslide and, when she showed up to the stadium - she made the most of her moment.

LA Galaxy beat the Seattle Sounders 3-0.

Before she books that gig, she will again be singing the national anthem, but this time at Staples Center before a Lakers game in November. She told CBS News that when she grows up, she wants to be "a singer, doctor, actress, violinist".
