Super Cute! Italian Kids Sing Who’s Afraid of the Dark

I caught this by chance on the television this evening and thought it was lovely. The song Chi ha paura del buio? – Who’s Afraid of the Dark? – is a duet sung by 4 year old Edoardo Barchi and 9 year old Alessia Chianese.

Accompanying Barchi and Chianese are the Piccolo Coro dell’ Antoniano Children’s Choir.

The song is in Italian, but you don’t need to know the language to enjoy super cute Barchi’s performance. Could this be a 2014 Christmas hit? I think it stands a good chance!

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Please be patient as the video may take a few moments to load – it’s well worth the short wait though.

I hope you liked that, I certainly did. Tiny Edoardo Barchi is destined to be a star!

The Zecchino d’Oro is an international children’s song festival. It’s been held every year since 1959.
