Celine Tam may be tiny in stature, but proves she has a voice mighty enough to bring an entire audience to her feet. She “started her career” singing “You Raise Me Up” by her favorite singer Celine Dion. And not only is Celine Dion her favorite singer but tiny Celine proves she’s quickly following in her footsteps. Little Celine proved this during her incredible audition on America’s Got Talent.
Celine Tam – the pint-sized cutie from Hong Kong, who was named after the Canadian vocal powerhouse, got kicked off the show ” America’s Got Talent ” last year before she made it to the finals.
Recently, German singer Helene Fischer, who’s also the host of her own show, decided to invite the little girl onto her show to sing a duet of “You Raise Me Up” after Celine failed to wow American audiences in judges opinion. The cute girl has chosen a song that was way too big for her and she was not prepared for this big step.
Helene is an amazing songstress in her own right, and when the two singing talents stood facing each other on stage, things could have gotten pretty awkward. AGT judge Mel B booted Celine for singing a song that was way too big for her, and now the girl was staring up at a “big” adult who had already honed her craft.
The magic moment started when the cute girl open her mouth and started to sing. The entire audience was stunned and after few moments the crowd roared in applause. Well deserved! Thankfully, Helene wasn’t the jealous type. She knew a sparkling diamond when she saw one, and as the two sang a gorgeous rendition of “You Raise Me Up,” their good vibes spread through the entire audience.
When Celine sings, “I am strong when I am on your shoulders, you raise me up to more than I can be,” it’s not hard to imagine that she’s directing that gratitude towards the wonderful host who gave her another chance to shine.
