Four-year-old steals hearts at Cowichan Lake singing competition

She wasn’t one of the competitors but four-year-old Sadie O’Reilly showed she can hold a stage Saturday, July 29 at Arbutus Park in Youbou.

Cowichan Lake Idol was holding its final round of auditions in the lakeside park and a good crowd of visitors gathered around to listen.

After they’d finished, her mom asked if maybe the little girl could try the microphone.

Sadie shyly stepped forward and sang “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” before Idol emcee Katherine Worsley, not one to miss a chance to help young talent, helped her with another selection, and finally, Sadie lisped out the words to a bit more before retiring to great applause.
