October 26th, 2020

December is the most magical month of the year as anything amazing could happen—especially when it’s closer to Christmas.

These two teens in Ireland showcased their most impressive talent, blowing millions of people away. With Christmas fast approaching, members of the Mount Sion Choir in Ireland decided to bring the people an early Christmas gift: their wholesome smiles. The choir group comprised of 25 members ranging from ages 12 to 19 led by Colette Kearney, the group’s choir director. It was the group’s first Christmas-themed concert, and the concert was held at the St. Patrick’s Gateway Centre in Waterford City.

Two choir members presented their audience that night with an unexpected duo performance.

19-year old teen boy Christopher Halligan paired up with Jessica Reinl, a 17-year old girl to sing a rendition of “Shallow.”

For those who don’t know, it’s a beautifully written song and one of the famous soundtracks featured in the popular 2018 romantic musical drama film called A Star Is Born.

The original was sung by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, with the song winning numerous awards along with the film itself.

The teen duet revived the song during the night of the Mount Sion Choir concert, in front of many people.

The duo interpreted the song’s emotions quite accurately!

The song was mainly about a couple conversing about how to make their love work by diving deep without falling short in the shallow.

Halligan and Reinl dove into that concept, brought their passions into the mix and sang the song wholeheartedly.

The choir, most especially the formidable duo gained a lot of attention that people started to recognize them wherever they perform.

In 2019, Reinl and Halligan were both invited to sing the same duet in the Waterford Institute of Technology arena during their event called the Waterford Peace Proms. The arena was filled with people, surrounding the teen singers on the center stage.

You could notice how much they improved in just a few months after the concert!
