Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” is arguably one of the most beautiful songs out there. When it’s performed by the right person, it has an incredible ability to leave us with chills all over.
That’s exactly the effect Cristina Rae, a single mom from Nashville, Tennessee, had on “America’s Got Talent” when she decided to tackle the gorgeous tune onstage!
Cristina has already proven how talented she is. After all, she won judge Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer and made it all the way to the quarterfinals.
We can only imagine how nervous she must have been when she prepared herself to take the spotlight once more, but she had absolutely nothing to fear!
In a video, we see her standing on a dark stage in front of a microphone. As she tackles the first lyrics, it becomes immediately clear that she doesn’t need flashy lights to be a showstopper! She simply stands there and lets her voice do the work, nailing every note as she goes along. By the time she finishes, each judge is on their feet, ready to shower her with praise!
Howie Mandel said she sang “with such ease” and added that her solo was the best way to close out “the most spectacular evening” of the season.
Meanwhile, Sofía Vergara told her she sounds like she’s “already a recording artist,” and Klum called the performance “perfect.”
They certainly weren’t the only ones who thought so! Fans around the world quickly took to social media to rave about the wonder Cristina pulled off!
What an amazing solo! Congratulations, Cristina, on blowing everyone away… again! We are so excited to see what you do next.
