One of the greatest things about platforms such as YouTube is that it allows us to witness the performances of incredibly talented individuals around the world far earlier than if we had to wait for them to be “discovered”. A perfect example is Mia Black, an incredibly talented singer from Ireland.
Mia was born on the 18th of December 2006 in Galway, Ireland, into a very musical family. Her grandfather Gerry Black played with three different bands: The Hilton, The Finnavons and Gerry Black & The Seasons. She is also the great-niece of Mickey O’Neill, who played with legendary Irish singer Brendan Bowyer and also the band The Swarbriggs.
As she grew older, Mia continued her humming and later began to sing along with songs. Mia mentions that YouTube was really helpful as a way of learning songs too.
