‘Unchained Medley’ by 6-Year-Old Singer Evan Riley

Performing for public consumption– speaking, acting, dancing or singing – is a big fear for most people. But for one child this does not appear to be something that gives her anxiety. You must hear this little girl’s voice to believe it and even then, you may still question it. 

Evan Riley, a 6-year-old girl, in a clip posted to YouTube, steps up to the microphone and beautifully sings a beloved, classic song. Evan sings out the lyrics to “Unchained Melody,” a song made famous by The Righteous Brothers.  

The song’s sound and Evan’s voice give her version of the timeless tune a very country feel. 

At approximately the 1:06-minute mark of the nearly 4-minute clip, Evan shows off her impressive range. She hits and then holds a high note that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief. How is a voice like that coming out of a child?

But that’s not even the most impressive section of the clip. As the song is winding down and Evan is just about done, she turns things up a notch, showing off her vocal skill set.

Around 3 minutes in, Evan once again shows off her range, going to a vocal register and then holding it for even longer than the previous section. 

However, that’s not the only song little Evan can sing, not in the slightest. The same YouTube account has also posted a video of Evan singing a song originally done by the great Patsy Cline, “Crazy.” 

A third video from that same account shows young Evan trying her hand at a more modern hit, “Shallow.” As she reaches the song’s memorable chorus, Evan lets loose and the crowd goes wild, cheering and applauding. 

Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
