Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja wowed the crowd at the StubHub Center on Sunday when she sang a powerful rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner in front of the packed stadium in what the Major League Soccer teams described as "one of the best national anthem performances" in the stadium's history.

That's 7-year-old Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja, and she may be the LA Galaxy's most valuable player.

"I was thinking that I can not do anything wrong because it's a really special song to America", Malea Emma told ABC News Monday.

Malea won a contest to sing the national anthem before Sunday's soccer match.

Malea began singing at age one.

Usually it is Zlatan Ibrahimovic who attracts all the attention when LA Galaxy take to the field, but that was not the case ahead of their game against Seattle Sounders on Monday.

"I was thinking that I can not do anything wrong because it's a really special song to America", she tells ABC.

If getting an entire stadium of people up on their feet isn't enough to prove this girl's performance was next-level fantastic then we don't know what is. She played Carnegie Hall as the victor of the American Protégé International Vocal Competition when she was only 5.

The second-grader also has her own YouTube channel and an Instagram with over 16,000 followers.

CBS News asked if her singing talent comes easy to her, but she said it takes work.
