It’s a busy month to many, families start to build their Christmas trees and decor, shopping and preparing for Thanksgiving, wrapping those presents for the kids, and much more.

As a preparation, there are also these Christmas concerts here and there, singing the beautiful songs of the season, and spreading heartfelt lyrics of love.

Back in 2018, the members of Mount Sion Choir held a Christmas concert at the St. Patrick’s Gateway Centre in Waterford City.

They are a group of talented youth with a powerhouse of singers ranging from ages 12 to 19. At that event, they presented the people with beautiful uplifting songs perfect for the season.

This duet, however, stood out!

Then 19-year old Christopher Halligan and 17-year old Jessica Reinl performed a spine-chilling duet of “Shallow.”

The song is one of the famous tracks featured in the popular 2018 romantic musical drama titled A Star Is Born.

The story revolves around Bradley Cooper’s hard-drinking musician character who falls in love with a young singer portrayed by Gaga.

It’s an award-winning song which was first sung by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

The song speaks about a couple who are asking each other questions and recognizing their fears within themselves. Soon they both decided to get away from the shallows of their relationship by going much deeper from where they were before.

Halligan and Reinl are singing it straight from their hearts.

Christopher starts crooning the first stanza and oh, what an incredibly powerful voice this young man has. We don’t know yet if he is the best male singer from the group but he’s definitely living up to and even exceeding expectations.

Their voice blends so well and they perfectly complement each other’s vocals. There must be one reason and one reason alone why they were chosen to perform a duet that day.

Not to discredit the rest of the choir members but these two teens are undeniably good together.

The video of their performance went viral online.

As of this writing, the video has racked up almost 2 million views with tens of thousands of likes. When talking about the performance, choir director Colette Kearney told Good Morning America that Halligan and Reinl only rehearsed once and they didn’t expect it to be a hit online.

“When they sang it that night, it came as a beautiful surprise to everyone… as I looked around the room so many people were crying tears of happiness,” Kearney said. “We asked them to stay back and we recorded the clip that most people have seen.”

Though it was Reinl who got noticed more on the video, some of the online viewers shared their thoughts about her equally-talented partner, Halligan.

One user wrote:

“His voice is so close to Bradley Cooper….Great job young man…..”

Another online viewer commented:

“The boys voice is beautiful he inspires me to be as good as him one day”

Cooper and Gaga would’ve been so proud to see these young lads performing their piece.
