SPOKANE, Washington Most pre-teens can barely remember their favorite song, but one Spokane 12-year-old is so musically gifted, she s participating in a global competition. She s the youngest competitor ever to take part in the World Accordion Championships.

The event will be held in Spokane.

Naomi Harris told KREM 2 she s very excited to take part in the 62nd year of this event. It s been over a decade since the US has had anyone qualify to compete at this prestigious competition. Her attitude about the whole thing is refreshing.

I don t feel intimidated really, she said. I m going to have a lot fun.

This is the first year the event will be held in the US. It runs from Wednesday through Saturday.
