Recently, a video became one of the most widespread on social networks by showing how a 4-year-old girl sang with emotion and feeling ‘Bidi bidi bam bam’ and ‘Como la flor’, two of the greatest hits of the late American singer Selena. The clip caused such a furor that it not only caught the attention of millions of Internet users, but also of celebrities who did not hesitate to compare it with the disappeared ‘Queen of Tex Mex’.
Her name is Maliya Kabs and she hails from London, England. She is the daughter of Chanel and Tay Kabs, who decided to quit their jobs to dedicate themselves to “The Kabs Family”, their YouTube channel, full time. In the social network they show what life is like for them and their three children: Teija (11 years old), Maliya (four) and TJ (only one year old). After they shared the interpretation of the little girl, they have reached 900 thousand subscribers on YouTube. They also gained more than 1 million followers on TikTok.
The girl’s father said that, although Maliya cannot fully understand what the song says, she does not hesitate to express her emotion when performing it. “She doesn’t know what it means, but you can tell she feels the music,” he said in conversation with the program Despierta América.
