Did you feel the weight of your family’s expectations when you were growing up? Well, imagine what Sislena Caparrosa, Pavarotti’s Granddaughter, must have been thinking when she stepped onto the stage to sing Nessun Dorma on a televised talent show.
Of course, it’s clear that any nerves that she may have been feeling quickly slipped away as she slipped into her rendition of the classic song. Before we continue the discussion, please take a few minutes to watch the following short video now. I personally had goosebumps just a few seconds in!
By the end of the song, everyone, from Sislena to the judges to the audience, is wiping away tears. While this amazing performer may come from a family of amazing singers, it is also clear just how hard she worked for this.
All of that preparation paid off as she made her entire family proud. More importantly, she started to establish herself as a credible singer on her own terms.
What struck me as I watched this performance was the amount of emotion that Sislena was able to put into the song. It was beautiful, powerful, innocent and strong all at the same time.
Wherever he is, I’m sure that her grandfather, Pavarotti, is smiling down on his beautiful and talented granddaughter. She is already a star, no matter what happens with her music career in the years ahead!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!
