Nine Year-Old Juneau Singer

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A 9-year-old Juneau girl who has been a hit on YouTube made her national television debut Thursday on the "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

Anna Graceman - that's her stage name - played the piano and sang an original song.

Anna told the Juneau Empire that representatives from the show contacted her about two weeks ago after seeing a video for her song "Paradise" on YouTube. The video has had more than a half-million views.

Anna, who recently performed at the Alaska Folk Festival, said she wasn't nervous about the television appearance.

"I was, and then I wasn't," she said. "I had confidence that I would be good."
