If you think about sibling relations, what comes to mind are probably things like: constant fighting, endless bickering, backstabbing, pettiness, complaining, grousing, and groaning. And as just about anyone with a brother or sister knows, “sibling rivalry” really is a thing. In fact, siblings who competed for their parents’ attention as kids can keep the habit as adults. Of course, even siblings who are often at loggerheads can still have a strong bond despite it all. There are, however, siblings who get along well, in some cases they were brought together by a shared hobby or talent.
For Kenny and Capri Holland of Phoenix, Arizona, the story is shared talent. They have a passion for music that goes a long way toward helping them get along so well. They enjoy singing duets, some of which Kenny posts on his YouTube channel. He’s an excellent singer and keyboardist, but it’s his little sister Capri who brings a truly angelic voice to their studio. One duet they recorded is a real show-stopper. They got creative and blended Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” with “Over the Rainbow.”
It’s based on an old French love ballad, but the definitive version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” was made by Elvis Presley. Since it was released in 1961, it’s been enormously popular, appearing in his movie “Blue Hawaii” and later serving as the closing number for his live shows in Las Vegas. After starting out with Elvis’ ballad, Kenny and Capri transitioned to “Over the Rainbow,” a song made immortal by Judy Garland in the 1939 movie “The Wizard of Oz.”
You’ll find the video of Kenny and Capri’s beautiful duet posted below. You won’t be surprised to hear that it’s closing in on 8 million views — now that’s a lot of goosebumps!
