Sister Cristina owns the stage with Celine Dion’s “I Surrender”


She continues to mature into a wonderful musician.

Sister Cristina performs “I Surrender,” which she covered on her 2014 self-titled album. The song was originally featured by Celine Dion, on her 2002 album A New Day Has Come.

Sister Cristina’s vocal abilities have continued to mature and her victorious stint on The Voice of Italy left her with all the confidence needed to own the stage. She exhibits excellent use of breath support through the long climax of Dion’s bombastic hit.

Her 2014 album, Sister Cristina, contains several songs that she sang on The Voice of Italy, as well as many other pop hits, such as Madonna’s “Like a Virgin,” Alicia Keys’ “No One,” and Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors.”

She declared: “To make an album, I would never renounce the greatest love of my life: God.”
