The Voice Kids France viewers and coaches were blown away after Emma Cerchi took to the stage to perform a beautiful cover of Céline Dion's mega-hit 'My Heart Will Go On.'

The nine-year-old contestant – who was competing for a place in the finals - wowed everyone with her flawless rendition of the much-loved song.

Belting out the notoriously difficult Titanic track is no mean feat even for the most experienced of singers, but the youngster managed to perform the song pitch-perfect.

Emma suffers from Léber's congenital amaurosis, a genetic eye disease that is gradually turning her blind.

Released in 1997, 'My Heart Will Go On' is one of the best-selling singles of all time, with worldwide sales estimated at over 18 million copies.

It won the 1998 Academy Award for Best Original Song and dominated the 1999 Grammy Awards, winning Record of the Year — marking the first time to be won by a Canadian — Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television.
