Celine Tam isn’t just named after Celine Dion, she has a voice that can stun her audience just as easily.

The young Hong Kong native has already traveled the world sharing her gift with fans and even appeared on America’s Got Talent in 2017. While she didn’t win, she went on to World’s Got Talent in 2019.

She got the honor of being invited to Germany to perform a duet with German singer and television host Helene Fischer on her yearly variety show The Helene Fischer Show.

An audience of 10,000 cheered on the duo live while millions more watched around the world.

The two sang a duet of “You Raise Me Up,” originally written and recorded by Irish-Norwegian duo, Secret Garden.

While it was only a minor hit for them, over 100 artists have now covered the piece! You might know it better as a Josh Groban hit.

In fact, Tam first covered the song when she was just 6 years old, so while the duet might have been a challenge, it was a song she knew well.

No wonder she knocked it out of the part a few years later. At just 10 years old she held her own alongside one of Germany’s biggest music stars.

“It’s a wonderful song that, to be honest, I get goosebumps from, and probably more because I’m allowed to sing with this enchanting young lady,” Fischer said while introducing her singing partner.

From the moment Tam opens her mouth to sing, everyone is in a state of shock, Fischer included.

Her parents beam with pride from the audience as their little girl lights up the entire auditorium with her amazing vocals.

With the number of talent shows on television these days, we’ve all heard our fair share of deeply talented child singers. But Tam is something else.

Her voice is still clearly that of a child – after all, she’s just 10! – but both her vocal range and control are well beyond her years.

When the pyrotechnics begin and both ladies start belting out the lyrics with all their might, the audience can no longer stay seated

As the two sing together, their vocals meld perfectly, which is surprising considering their age difference.

And Fischer doesn’t drown out Tam – they’re both equally powerful singers!

Their final note is truly something to behold.

The audience is already on their feet so there’s nothing left to do except stand in awe and, in some cases, wipe away tears.

As the camera pans back we get a glimpse of just how enormous the auditorium is and we can only be impressed that at 10 years old, Celine Tam can stand on stage and belt out a tune without looking a bit nervous.
