Girl Aged 5 Upstaged By Singing Brother Aged 2 In Musical Debut

This young Colombian girl may have talent as a singer but she was not put out when she was upstaged by her younger brother -- aged around two -- who clearly wanted to get a slice of the attention that his older sister was getting. According to Spanish language media the girl's proud parents had agreed to do a video clip of her singing her favourite song by the Argentine singer Amanda Miguel named 'Asi no te amara jamas', which translate as 'So he will not ever love you'. But as the girl, aged around 5, belts out the number with Latin passion, to the delight of her parents, a second voice starts to sing off-camera and then her little brother comes into the frame with a pretty impressive series of moves copying his sister's actions. The youngster also clearly has talent, and by the end of the video has become the focus of attention leaving commentators to say that the pair clearly have talent especially if they stick to doing duets. Spanish media did not name the performers other than to say that they were performing at their home in Colombia. Several offers by talent scouts to try out for a TV performance have already been made online. The song has been an enormously popular one to copy although often with hilarious results. The original singer, Amanda Miguel, is officially Argentinian although in the year 2000 she took up Mexican citizenship. She is known in South America for her songs about love and has sung with several popular artistes such as Julio Iglesias and the Mexican Jose Jose.
