Teen Singer Marina Dalmas or Marina Kaye

At the age of 13, Marina Dalmas was an incredible singer. Great Britain created this TV show called Got Talent. It spread to other countries. In the United States, it is called America's Got Talent. People demonstrate whatever talent that they have and a winner is chosen. People at any age can win this.

In France they have their own version of this called La France a Un Incroyablel Talent (France Has Got Talet). In 2011 singer Marina Dalmas won this at age 13. In essence this is saying that this 13 year old girl is the most incredible amateur talent in France at that time.

But what is great is that she is singing songs in English. The first video clip is her singing in this competition for the first time. To me this is the best singing that I have seen of her on these videos of her singing.

My friend Judy of Phoenix, Arizona says:

Her voice actually sent thrills and chills throughout my body. She is phenomenal and awesome (and I NEVER say those words about ANYTHING, even though they are popular to throw around these days at just about everything!) [and]

Her voice is phenomenal. I was really impressed and felt powerfully moved by it. It was such a thrill as she reached her crescendo and I felt chills of excitement run through me. (Obviously the audience felt the same thing!)

Marina Dalmas was born February 9, 1998 (birth date) in Marseille, France. On February 9, 2012, she became 14 years old. On video below, after she sings this first song for the judges, they ask her if she can speak English. She says that she cannot. If you do not know French pay great attention to the facial expressions of everyone. You can see that they are praising her so much, she is overwhelmed.

Also while she is singing, watch the reactions of everyone seeing her singing for the first time. It looks like a judge is signalling her to look at the audience more. When she is talking to the judges, 'merci' means 'thank you' and 'merci beaucoup' means 'thank you very much.'

It appears that she is now using a stage name of Marina Kaye! Here is her facebook page with this name, but the posts are in French. Here is her singing the song Homeless on Off.TV/OffStudio. She maybe the first super diva!

Now this is a written article but it is leading up to the incredible singing on this video. Since she does not know English, it may be hard to understand some words like when she says "I'll lay" and "I'll leave", it sounds like Ali. If you click on YouTube on the video, you can see it in full screen. So here is the beginning of the song (Rolling in the Deep lyrics):

There's a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bring me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I'll lay your ship bare
See how I'll leave, with every piece of you
Don't underestimate the things that I will do

There's a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bring me out the dark
The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless I can't help feeling

Adele is a new singer that has broken many singing records in England (Great Britain). The song (last video) that Marina Dalmas sings to win France Has Got Talent or France Got Talent is by Adele and so is Rolling in the Deep. That song won a Grammy. I think that Marina sings this better than Adele. Click on Youtube (lower right corner) on the videos to see them on Youtube. Marina Dalmas is some kind of music/singing genius.

June 4, 2014 Update

Marina Dalmas is a TGIT Artist. Her first video below, Rolling in the Deep has had over 100 million Youtube hits. She started working on her debut album early 2013 in New York, United States of America. Soon she may be a huge singing star.

Although a big part of a singing career is coming up with great songs. So the singers that can create their own songs, like Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Avril LaVigne are at a huge advantage. I wish Marina Dalmas the very best of luck.

Marina Dalmas Sings Another Song

Marina Dalmas has a friend Clara that got her started singing with karaoke. Thanks Clara! The following video has her talking with English translation. She was surprised to get a 'yes' from all 3 judges when she first sang. So she had no idea how good she was. This video also has the semi-final where she sings Firework by Katy Perry. Also there is English translation of what the judges say about it.

Katy Perry's Firework with a lot of what Marina Dalmas said translated into English. One judge described her performance as "perfect" and "flawless."

Marina Dalmas Sings Set Fire to the Rain in the Finals

This is the finals and she sings Set Fire to the Rain. In that first video the female judge says to Marina Dalmas "Je t'adore" which in English means "I adore you." In the second video I hear her singing Dust in the Wind but I cannot find her singing that whole song on Youtube. Since Marina Dalmas wears braces, it teaches others that they should not feel bad about having braces. I did not like the physical pain from wearing braces especailly when they were tightened.

So I figure that one day she will learn English and come to America and be a very famous singer. She is already a great singer.

@ChristyWrites I just wrote on Facebook that she sings the song, Rolling in the Deep, better than Adele. But imagine this. Imagine someone is on America's Got Talent and sings all her songs in French. She will have very little chance of winning. So Marina sung all her songs in English and won France Got Talent.

The official language of France is French. The official languages of Canada are French and English. Can you speak French? Do you know what the official language of the United States is? We do not have one.

For some reason your YouTube embeds aren't showing. Instead I did a YouTube search and found a few of her posts. She can definitely sing...and at such a young age! I won't be surprised if she ends up as pop star in the US.

It says "Embedding has been disabled by request-- Watch on Youtube." You can just click on Youtube when it says that or in the lower right hand corner, click on Youtube. I usually do this since the full screen function does not work on this site, only when I go to Youtube.

Her song and video "Homeless" is amazing. My favorite is Celine Dion but this girl can match her vocals.
