In 2005, Jay Leno introduced Oprah to some of America's most talented kids. Recently, he discovered another small sensation—opera singer Gwyn MacKenzie!

Gwyn, an 8-year-old from California, began playing piano and singing when she was just 3 years old. Now, she can sing arias in four different languages!

When Gwyn first heard operatic music, she says she was drawn to the beautiful tones. "When I first started it just, like, came out and I was like, 'Ooh, I like this,'" she says.

Though she has a passion for opera, Gwyn says she listens to all kinds of music...except heavy metal. Currently, she's listening to music by Beverly Sills, an American opera singer, and Sumi Jo, a South Korean operatic soprano.
