Christina Bianco's Spot-On Musical Impressions of 19 Famous Divas


Spot-on impressions are hard to come by, but off-Broadway actress Christina Bianco is a total pro. 

The YouTube video above shows her performing a special rendition of Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart" at a recent event in New York City. In the cover, she sings in the style of 19 world-famous divas — including Adele, Cher, Christina Aguilera and Shakira — showcasing her supreme talent for pinpointing a singer's trademark sound, then mimicking it perfectly.

Bianco's impressions helped her build a name in the off-Broadway scene, landing her roles in Newsical the Musical and Forbidden Broadway: Goes to Rehab

She is also known for covering other songs in the style of famous divas, including a rendition of Katy Perry's "Firework" that also features impressions of Drew Barrymore and Alanis Morissette. Watch it below.
