IF Gal-Lee Tal sang to you from behind a curtain, you would think she was much older than 18.

The teenage singing sensation, who hails from Izotsha, has taken the South Coast by storm with her voice, which thousands have already seen on YouTube and Facebook.

She also has some interest from the U.S. and Israel, where she was born.

“I would always sing when I was alone or in the shower until one day I told my mom I wanted to sing. So I sang to her and she was shocked,” said Gal-Lee.

She then entered her first talent competition at the Southcoast Mall when she was 12 where she sang a song by Demi Lovato, one of her favourite singers.

“That was it. My stage fright was over, but I still get nervous before I sing, but I now love singing to crowds.”

Tal has auditioned for many talent competitions including Idols SA and her most recent venture has been auditioning for The Voice SA.

“Sadly I did not make it, but I have not lost hope and I will be trying and working very hard towards my dream of becoming a singer,” she said.

One of her videos, where she sings Hallelujah, has over 9 500 views on Facebook.

She’s also uploaded clips of her singing some of her favourite songs by Lana Del Rey and others, and urges everyone to watch, like and share.

“My family have been the best. My mother is supportive. She encourages me to do what makes me happy and to follow my heart.”

When asked where she sees herself after completing matric next year, Gal-Lee replied: “On the road, travelling and singing all over the world.”

Gal-Lee will be making more appearances on the South Coast this holiday season as she has been offered a few gigs at local hot spots.
