Simon Cowell has a reputation for being a severe, outspoken judge on prestigious talent competitions. He also has a talent for spotting genuine talent Celine Tam, a 9-year-old with talent, quickly brought the audience to its feet and captivated Simon’s attention despite his initial unimpressive impression of her.
She aptly named her daughter Celine Tam after Celine Dion, one of her favorite musicians. Many adults who attempt to perform Celine Dion songs on programs like America’s Got Talent fall short of the legendary singer’s level of musical prowess.
However, little Celine Tam showed that she was capable of performing the songs of the legendary Celine Dion practically as soon as she took the stage.
She chose to perform “My Heart Will Go On,” one of the first songs by Celine Dion that her parents had ever seen her perform. Her parents acknowledged that they were ardent fans of Celine Dion and that their daughter was named in honor of the singer.
They weren’t expecting their young Celine to be as talented musically as Dion. Over time, they became aware of and encouraged their daughter’s vocal ability. Celine Tam finally had the opportunity to showcase her outstanding abilities on America’s Got Talent after putting all of her time, effort, and resources into it.
The moment the girl began singing this Celine Dion song live, the audience instantly recognized her potential and stood to applaud. Her talent obviously impressed the judges as well after the performance.
Celine Tam sang a truly difficult song brilliantly. Her voice was smooth and accurate while also being lovely and strong.
This family still enjoys singing along to Celine Dion songs together. The fact that the couple gave Celine’s baby sister Dionne as a name is not shocking. It is too early to say whether or not tiny Dionne will have the same vocal prowess as her older sibling.
