They say siblings have a special bond. Kenny Holland and his sister, Capri, have a bond - but more importantly, they have a singing bond. The two created a mashup with two classic songs, ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ by Elvis Presley, and the timeless classic ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’
As Kenny begins playing the piano delicately, Capri sweetly sings the opening line of Elvis’ hit tune, but when big brother Kenny starts to harmonize with his sister, their voices create some beautiful magic that sends chills up and down my spine. I've listened to it ten times already.
The Elvis hit was released in 1961 and quickly soared to the top of the British charts in 1962, with lyrics like, “Wise men say only fools rush in. But I can't help falling in love with you.” Somewhere Over the Rainbow was written for the hit movie The Wizard of Oz. On October 7, 1938, Judy Garland first recorded the song in September 1939, using a studio recording of the song, not from the actual film soundtrack. It was recorded and released as a single by Decca Records.
These two songs make a brilliant match up, and the way the two siblings execute the vocals make it even more magnificent. Watch the video, below, and enjoy the mashup that these two have put together.
