Yeah, that bothered me a little too. Especially changing the ending: she’s begging her father for pity, ending in that way doesn’t make sense at all. She also muddled the words. It’s perfectly excusable for a 9 y/o, of course. But it seems a shame, since her voice is lovely. It also makes it more plausible that she has little training, if any. She looked quite untrained to me, with my only very barely trained eye. Although that means she is talented, singing in this way with no training could also damage her voice and she could be teaching herself damaging techniques. Still, very impressive for a little girl!
I love singing this piece myself, however cliched it might be.
