Sislena Caparossa, 15, sings Nessun Dorma
Charles and Wilma Monluis send a video of Sislena Caparossa, 15, singing the aria Nessun Dorma from the opera Turandot of Giacomo Puccini, in a dramatic performance which brought tears to the eyes of many members of the audience:
We asked for some information about the singer, and received this reply:
"Here is what I could find about Sislena: she is from Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain, from the Arafo Municipality. It seems that her African heritage comes from her father, who is from the Dominican Republic.
"Regarding her background things are very scanty since she came on the scene only last year. However they do mention that her mother sang in a chorus at one time, and that her father played the trumpet in the Juan Luis Guerra band (doesn't say which country)."
