Celine – Rise Like a Phoenix Cover

Vocal Coach Comments from Mark Baxter:

Fantastic performance Celine. Great feel and technique. By allowing the lyrics to guide your inflections, your performance sounds very personal. The only criticism I offer is that you resorted to a growl a bit too often. It’s more affective if used sparingly. Keep singing!

Celine’s Bio:

This is Celine Agius, 20 years old. I come from Malta, a very small Island with only 450,000 people as population. It’s really hard to make it here, due to lack of oppurtunities. I want to express rather than Impress – I am here to leave a mark as an artist, and do my passion in the most humble way possible for my own good and for others. I learnt Music alone, since my parents couldn’t afford .. I bought a piano alone by years of saving money continuously. I am a University student studying lectures I also attended a couple of Voice lessons which I also paid myself:) I would like my Voice to be heard


  • You have a very strong impressive voice it seems to come out with no effort! Almost or may be it is operatic. I have just discovered this website recently and I find your voice remarkable as well as original. I go thru a lot of the videos and I am not always compelled to comment but I was by you.Follow your dream!You are being heard and appreciated!

    Hi Celine. I loved your performance of the song. Very heartfelt. I agree with the vocal coach that you slightly overused the growl at the beginning of the lines. Perhaps the backing track could have been a touch quieter too. But other than those minor considerations, I found your interpretation and delivery moving and compelling. I agree with Shay, you are being heard and appreciated. Keep going. Keep posting songs. Good luck.
