We have seen some very impressive performances on America’s got talent this year. Who can forget little Darci? She showed up with a puppet to perform an act of ventriloquism. Everyone thought that it was going to be just another act. Maybe even not as good because ventriloquism takes many years of practice and Darci was obviously very young. Not only was Darci very good at her act making the puppet speak, but she believed she was also a very good singer.
When she said that she would also sing, everyone raised their eyebrows. This would be something very difficult to pull off even for an experienced singer. If she made the puppet speak and it was good, it would already be enough. She blows everyone away when she starts singing. No one can believe that such a beautiful voice is coming from Darci.
After Darci, we had another amazing contestant by the name of Angela. She surprised everyone when she said she wanted to be the next Whitney Houston. Singing anything like Whitney Houston takes enormous talent. For such a young girl to have that dream is ambitious. But would she be able to fill her shoes? After the introduction, she surprises everyone with a powerful voice, hitting every note impeccably and making it look easy. This year the contestants, especially the younger ones have raised the bar very high. Could there still be anyone who had enough talent to surprise us at this point?
Well, meet Celine Tam. Celine is a delightful little girl. She’s very outspoken and seems very comfortable in the stage. The judges start asking her about herself and her family. Celine has a sister; her sister’s name is Dion. It turns out that her parents are very big fans of Celine Dion. When they ask Celine who their favorite singer is, she says it’s Celine Dion. When they ask her when she had discovered she had a good singing voice, she answers that it was singing one of Celine Dion’s songs.
Finally, they asked her what she’s going to sing for them. No surprise to anyone, she will sing one of Celine Dion’s most famous songs: “my heart Will go on.” More than one judge raises their eyebrows because singing this song requires amazing range and a very powerful voice. Will Celine deliver?
Celine gives the signal and the music starts playing. Her parents and her sister are with her next to the stage. Her parents have a look that is a combination of happiness and being nervous. When Celine starts singing, her mother starts showing tears of joy. Everyone in the audience goes silent and they start cheering her after the first verse.
