The ten-year-old singer excitedly posted the good news on Instagram saying, “I set a Guinness World Record! While performing on Italian TV, I was surprised with the GWR title of World’s Youngest Opera Singer based on my very first opera contract at age 7yrs 314 days!”
She continued, “Special thanks to the @thepublicpgh @yesyesmaryasea and @ricksebak for inviting me to be part of their amazing show and believing in me three years ago! Thanks and Love to all who have been a special part of my journey!”
And her journey truly has been an incredible one.
Victory is one of 11 children, adopted as a baby, yet even as a toddler, her family knew that she was special. Two days before her sixth birthday, the talented opera singer asked her mom to help her discover who could sing the highest notes, sparking a passion for opera singing.
From that moment on, Victory declared, “I’m going to be an opera singer.” And she has unquestionably accomplished just that.
“My mom taught me how to sing and helps me believe I can do anything. No matter what I want to do next, she finds a way to help me to do it. She is always cheering me on,” Victory said in a recent interview. “I love the challenge of the difficult arrangements, the technique required to sing, all the runs, and the different languages all the arias are written in.”
