Amani was first  recorded by a visiting tourist, Britt Chantel who was blown away by her melodious voice.

“So before I came to Kenya I decided to try and limit my social media usage to be present and really take in this amazing experience with our InfluenceHers crew But we’re coming to an end and I had to post this beautiful moment!!

While finishing up one of our service projects with Fountain Youth this little girl came up to us as we were leaving and asked to sing a song. Then she blew us away… #undiscoveredtalent
Share, share, help us make her viral!” Britt wrote on Facebook
