This Woman Went Viral On TikTok For Singing Exactly Like Céline Dion — And Céline Herself Approves

I didn't know I needed to hear a Céline Dion version of "Savage" and "WAP" until now.

Céline Dion is one of those famous singers whose voice is so distinct, you’d pretty much recognize it anywhere.

Lots of passion + lots of power = Céline Dion.

But then I stumbled upon singer and musician Shuba on TikTok (known as @tiktokbrownchick on the platform), who can sing so similar to Céline, I almost thought I was listening to the legendary singer herself.

Shuba, who was a semifinalist on Season 12 of American Idol, often uploads TikToks doing impersonations of famous singers by singing the latest hit songs in their style. And she's SO good that her videos have been getting millions of views.

Recently, her videos impersonating Céline have become quite popular. Here's her video "If Céline sang Savage" — yes, we're talking Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage."

I'm TRULY LOVING all the "My Heart Will Go On" vibes. I mean, I've never heard the word "nasty" belted out so beautifully.

Céline Dion HERSELF loved it so much that she reposted Shuba's "Savage" video on her own TikTok page, enthusiastically captioning the video "Oh wow!" with a shocked and a laughing emoji.
