One of the great things about this connected, global world we now live in is that talent can be discovered at any place, at any time.
Singers don’t need to have a recording contract or be on TV to show off their skills. No way! All they have to do is upload videos of themselves singing on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, or any other social media platform and if they have the goods, they have a good chance of being picked out of obscurity.
And that’s exactly what a vocalist named Shuba did recently.
Shuba was a semifinalist of Season 12 of American Idol so she’s had some exposure in the past, but it’s her recent work singing recent songs like famous vocalists that has gotten her a lot of attention.
I’m specifically referring to Celine Dion.
That’s right, Shuba has been singing big hits in Celine’s voice and people have been flocking to her TikTok page as a result.
Here’s a video of Shuba singing “Savage” by Megan Thee Stallion in the key of Celine Dion.
I love you ? see you elsewhere @ shubamusic . We’re just getting started 🙂 #celinedion #savage #arianagrande #singer
Want some more? Well, check out this version of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP”.
In honor of @celinedion posting me on her page and also cuz you guys requested this a lot | @shubamusic | #wap #wapchallenge #celinedion #singing
And Celine Dion herself reposted Shuba’s video on her own TikTok page with a comment that said, “Oh Wow!” I’d say that’s pretty high praise, wouldn’t you?
That’s so cool!
Do you know of any other great, unknown talents that we should be following on social media?
