Celine Dion got quite a surprise after she invited a 7-year-old fan to sing for her during one of her recent Las Vegas residency shows. Per a report from Entertainment Tonight Canada, Dion encouraged the fan to sing for the thousands-strong crowd at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace during a gig on March 15. Dion handed over her microphone to the little girl, letting her fan show off her incredible vocals.
The fan, little Anjali Singh, then belted out Dion’s 2002 hit “I Surrender” in front of the stage. Celine looked down at her, kneeling. The star appeared pretty shocked by Singh’s huge voice, and could be seen closing her eyes and throwing her arms open while enjoying the performance. Dion eventually stood back up, encouraging the crowd to show their appreciation.
Celine then enthusiastically praised Anjali’s incredible performance, and laid over the edge of the stage to give the little girl a huge hug.
“You are the best,” the legendary performer told Anjali before asking for her autograph. “I got a brand new friend… thank you for singing for all of us tonight.”
Dion then asked if anyone had a pencil while getting the little girl to give her the requested autograph, telling Anjali, “my name is Celine.”
