When 9-year-old Celine Tam said she was going to sing a Celine Dion hit, everyone raised their eyebrows. This would be something challenging to pull off even for an experienced singer.
When the judges asked Celine who her favorite singer was, she said it’s Celine Dion. When they asked her when she had discovered that 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. Well, it was no surprise to anyone that she said she was going to sing one of Celine Dion’s most famous songs: “My Heart Will Go On.”
Little Celine’s musical career started when she was traveling in a car one day with her family. Celine Dion’s classic “My Heart Will Go On” began to blare on the radio, and the child needed no invitation to start belting her lungs out.
Celine’s father was so amazed by his daughter’s voice that he realized right away that singing would be the arena in which she would make her mark on the world.
He and Celine’s mom lent their daughter all the support she needed, knowing that if they could nurture her talent and maximize its potential, she would benefit for her entire life.
Suffice to say the difficult work paid dividends the day she walked onto the America’s Got Talent stage.
9-year-old Celine was given her chance at showcasing her amazing skill to the world, and boy did she take it with both hands.
