Post Uptempo, Strong Ending, For 10 Year Old Girl?
Hi there!

I am trying to find a song that is appropriate for my daughter, she is 10 year old (Almost 11), prefer it is uptempo, with a strong ending. The target audience is regional TV talent show, so I think the audience will prefer some thing that is more contemporary and can lift the spirit, some thing like a big note at the end?

I have some of choices in mind:

Good Morning Baltimore
A Change In Me (from Beauty and Beast)

Can any one if you recommend more choices?

Thanks!

Matilda seems pretty great for this. Naughty or Quiet work?

My daughter performed "Naughty" before in another occasion and the audience liked it. My concern is though although it is a cute piece, it might not be "GRAND" enough to vow the judges. All the reality shows are looking for louder, bigger stuff which I am a little afraid a "cute" piece is not the most effective. I think I need a piece that shows range and have a "grand finale" at the end thing.

I'm not sure that A Change in Me is a good choice. It's not what I would call uptempo and the lyrics are a little too mature for a 10 year old (in my opinion).

What type of voice are you looking to show off? Belt, soprano, etc?

Her favorite arrangement is the one they did on the tour:

I agree the lyrics are probably not the best choice for a 10 yo girl (almost 11), but as it is still a princess, I think it is still kind of okay.

Her range is from E3 to F#5, belt to Eb5. "Waiting For Life" is one that she goes without any issue.
