MLS Malea Emma sings the US national anthem prior to LA Galaxy's MLS match against Seattle Sounders

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is usually fierce and intimidating on the pitch but even he couldn't help crack a smile as little seven-year-old Malea Emma let out a stunning rendition of America's national anthem.

And, she might be the Galaxy's new good luck charm - the team won the game 3-0 over the Seattle Sounders. She said she practices with her dad every night and told CBS News that when she grows up she hopes to be a "singer, doctor, actress and violinist".

I mean, does it get any cuter?

Malea Emma Tjandrawidjaja is so tiny but she has a voice that is so mighty.

"I was thinking that I can not do anything wrong because it's a really special song to America", Malea Emma said to ABC News. She had performed it three times before, but the crowds were dwarfed by the one at the LA Galaxy match. She's based her singing style on Aguilera, her favorite singer, which came through in Sunday's performance.

"I won?" she asked, grinning ear to ear.

One future opportunity may be singing the national anthem for the International Champions Cup.
