Meet Victory Brinker: The World’s Youngest Opera Singer

She’s a little girl with a big voice!

Meet Victory Brinker, the world’s youngest opera singer. 

According to Guinness World Records, Victory is well on her way to become the next star. Adopted as a baby, the Latrobe, Pennsylvania opera singer is one of 11 children. From the age of a toddler, it was very clear Victory was special. Two days before her sixth birthday, she asked her mom to help her discover who could sing the highest notes, sparking a passion for opera singing. 


“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,” said Victory. 

In 2019, at the age of seven years and 314 days, Victory made history as the world’s youngest female opera singer, participating in eight professional performances at the Pittsburgh Public Theatre’s Lights and Legends show. Now 10 years old, the elementary student is just getting started, working overtime to maintain her voice and technique. 


Once or twice a week, Victory meets with her vocal coach to work on achieving a perfect pitch, learning new pieces and languages. Already, she can reach more than three octaves and sings in seven different languages. She also allots 45 min a day to practicing with her mom and has appeared on Italian television show Lo Show Dei Record, NBC’s Little Big Shots, Dr. Phil, Wonderama, became the first ever contestant to receive the Golden Buzzer on season 16 of America’s Got Talent, and is a regular singer for the NBA, NFL, and MLB. 

“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,” said Victory.

Despite her larger-than-life talent, Victory is still a kid and says she still enjoys regular activities like swimming and playing with slime. She even admits that while her six brothers and four sisters support her, they often tire of her practicing in the house and will find ways around it. 

“Sometimes my siblings get a little tired of me always singing and set up my bed with a stuffed animal audience, so I will practice in my bedroom,” she explained.

She already sings and plays the piano but hopes to eventually pursue acting, even hoping to one day set more Guinness World Records and inspire other kids to chase their dreams too. 

“You can do it! Just do it one time and you’ll see it’s not so bad. I tell myself to give it my all and have fun, and I do!,” said Victory.
