The music industry is full of iconic sibling duos: the Carpenters (Richard and Karen Carpenter), Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart and Alex and Eddie Van Halen of Van Halen, just to name a few. Well, meet Kenny and Capri Holland, the latest dynamic sibling duo.
This brother and sister pair recorded a beautiful duet in their home that has captured the attention of the internet. The song is a mashup of two classic tunes: “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” popularized in the movie “The Wizard of Oz.”
Capri starts out on vocals, opening with “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” while her brother accompanies her on the keyboard. Then Kenny begins to harmonize with his sister, and their voices blend beautifully. Just when you think this is a standard cover of an Elvis hit, the two seamlessly transition into “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and then back again to “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” effectively creating a brand-new song that effortlessly combines the two. It actually sounds like the two songs were meant to be sung together! Check out their awesome performance in the clip below:
At the end of the song, Capri sweetly rests her head on her big brother’s shoulder, and he gives her cheek an affectionate squeeze. These two are super-talented and adorable!
People on YouTube could not get enough of this musical duo. The video has been viewed over 5 million times and has received over 2,000 comments. “I’m just falling in love with their voices!” declared one fan.
“I just have one word: brilliant,” said another.
