Esther and Ezekiel Mutesasira, who are originally from Uganda, gave a fantastic performance during the third season of Canada’s Got Talent. They impressed both the judges and the audience.
Esther, who is 17 years old, and Ezekiel, who is 13 years old, claim that they have always sung together and that their mother, who emigrated from Uganda after coming out as homosexual and marrying a pastor, encouraged them to do so.
Ezekiel stated that it was very challenging for him to be separated from his mother for a period of five years when he was a child.
However, now that they are in Canada, the couple has their sights set on winning the highly coveted CGT 2022 prize, and judging from their audition, it seems as though it is a distinct possibility that they will do so.
The fact that the brother and sister are able to sing gospel, pop, R&B, and afro-fusion without having received any sort of formal musical education creates the sense that music is in their blood.
The Ugandan singing duet entered the world of talent competitions for the first time in October 2019, when they competed in and ultimately won the first season of East Africa’s Got Talent.
Around this stage in the competition, Ezekiel sang a cover of Jordin Sparks’ song “No Air.” The judges and audience were blown away by Ezekiel’s powerful voice and wide vocal range as they sang the song.
After obtaining four yeses from each of the judges, the Mutesasira siblings moved to the next round of the audition process. Their doting mother, Julie Mutesasira, was present at the auditions during this time.
