America’s Got Talent is one of the globally most popular reality shows where amateurs showcase their talent to the world in the hope of winning a massive million-dollar prize.
Well sometimes, the performer wins the heart instead. That’s what happened when a 9-year-old Celine Tam sang “My Heart Will Go On” on the show. This young powerhouse came to the show with her parents and her little sister named, of all things, Dion.
The song was made popular by Celine Dion and was first released in 1997 as the main theme song to the epic romance film, Titanic. It became an international hit and Dion’s signature song, and also one of the best-selling singles of all time with global sales of over 18 million copies. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song, as well as four Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
The song has been covered dozens of times but few were as surprising as the one in this video. Being a huge fan of Celine Dion and having the same name herself, Tam surprised everyone with her high notes that even Simon seemed amusingly surprised. We all know how rare is that!
Towards the end of her performance, she got everyone including the judges smiling with tears. Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
