Putri Ariani Sounds Like Belle from Beauty and the Beast in This Stunning Disney Cover
The America's Got Talent Season 18 Finalist performed with two famous names in music.
Putri Ariani sang one of the Disney classics!
On August 13, the America's Got Talent Season 18 Finalist shared the most impressive video of her performing a rendition of the theme song from the 1991 Disney film Beauty and the Beast. Better yet, she was accompanied by renowned composer David Foster and Grammy winning singer Peabo Bryson.
During her version, Ariani crooned in a graceful tone while using some heavenly vibrato, and Bryson couldn't help but cheer for her.
"Growing with this song, I always listen to this song because I love Disney. And finally, I can sing it with you @davidfoster @peabobryson2 such an honor and incredibly beautiful moment for me. Thank you so much for having duet with me," she gushed in the caption.
What to know about Putri Ariani on Season 18 of America's Got Talent
Originally from Indonesia, 17-year-old Ariani blew everyone away with a draw-dropping performance of her original tune "Loneliness," and a cover of "Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word" by Elton John. Judge Simon Cowell was so impressed, that he granted her his Golden Buzzer for the Season.
Her amazing performances throughout the season included "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" by U2 and a version of Snow Patrol's "Run" with Leona Lewis. For her Finale performance, she chose to honor Sir Elton again with a beautiful rendition of "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me."
Ariani ended up finishing in fourth place for Season 18, with dog coach Adrian Stoica and his border collie Hurricane taking home the winning title.
In a June interview with DailyMail, Ariani revealed the Judge who inspires her the most. "Simon [Cowell] is a very great producer and he always knows how to manage and how to make a big singer, and I really want to like that someday. He would be a big help for that dream to come true," she told the outlet. "I want to know how to become a superstar. I really want to go around the world."
She also discussed why she chose to audition for the show. "I would be so very grateful and winning AGT is not about me, not just about me, but also about the world. How I can give my contributions and gifts to the world and how I can influence and inspire other people who have similar or the same conditions as me that still live in different countries. I want them to be brave, and to reach their dream and to do more and as much as I do."
