Teen girl sang the song that was considered not humanly possible, and the jury left in awe
Russian 13-year-old Victoria Hovhannisyan was still a child but when she decided to take courage and sign up to the audition for The Voice Russia, she knew she was going to blow the judges’ minds.
Hovhannisyan made history in 2015 when she showcased her unique talent for lyric singing, performing a piece that was thought to be impossible for a human voice to sing it, according to Classicalite.
The members of the jury were probably skeptical when the teenager step onto the stage announcing she was going to sing 'Diva Dance', a song that most professional vocalists agree to be humanly impossible to sing, reported Likemag.
The song was specifically conceived for the 1997 film The Fifth Element, directed by French filmmaker Luc Besson and starring Bruce Willis and Mila Jovovich.
In the movie, the song is sung by an extraterrestrial, and composer Eric Serra tried to make it sound like only a voice from another world could be able to sing it
Beyond making the song physically impossible for any human to sing, the track was also artificially modified in the editing room to make it even harder to interpret for a human voice.
Since the movie came out, 'Diva Dance' became a focal point for singers, who felt challenged by the otherworldly rendition. And yet here was a 13-year-old that managed to sound almost like the original.
As the story goes, when Serra showed the sheet music for the song to soprano Inva Mula, who voiced the character of Diva Plavalaguna as she performs the piece, she told him it was impossible for a human voice to achieve it.
Mula reportedly had to sing the notes one y one and have them digitally joined to sound as she sang them consecutively because the human voice can’t switch notes so distant that fast.
By watching the video one can tell that the judges were very impressed by Hovhannisyan performance. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa
