A McGlynn Moment – Ana and Fia’s emotional duet

Ana and Fia’s emotional duet

Mother and daughter duo Ana and Fia may have recently started singing together, but the pair manage to blow the Judges away with their version of Barbra Streisand’s Tell Him.

The performance, and Ana’s story of her marriage troubles, touched viewers. They have done the rounds on TV talk shows since their appearance, perhaps the first on the show by Indonesian contestants.

“I don’t know, but I’ve never seen [an Indonesian] pass the judges’ stage of the audition, so [I believe] we are the first,” said Ana, who worked as a flight attendant for Air Atlanta Icelandic and studied law at YARSI University Jakarta.

“It is kind of hard if you in my age group, you know, being in a harmonious relationship with family at all times, but one kind of has to do it, right?” said Fia, a straight-A student who is studying economics, finance and mathematics at a college in London and also working part-time at a fast-food restaurant.

“To overcome hardship in life, you should stick with your family, especially your mom [when] you still have your mom.”

Fia also credits her family’s homeland for her academic and singing success.

“I have my talent and numbers and singing because I am from Indonesia — [the country] has 17,000 islands so there are a lot of numbers to count,” she said with a laugh.

Lyrics

I’m scared
So afraid to show I care
Will he think me weak
If I tremble when I speak

Ooh
What if

There’s another one he’s thinking of
Maybe he’s in love
I’d feel like a fool
Life can be so cruel
I don’t know what to do
I’ve been there

With my heart out in my hand
But what you must understand
You can’t let the chance
To love him pass you by

Tell him
Tell him that the sun and moon
Rise in his eyes
Reach out to him

And whisper
Tender words so soft and sweet
Hold him close to feel his heart beat
Love will be the gift you give yourself
Touch him (Ooh)

With the gentleness you feel inside (I feel it)
Your love can’t be denied
The truth will set you free

You’ll have what’s meant to be
All in time you’ll see
Oh
I love him (Then show him)
Of that much I can be sure (Hold him close to you)
I don’t think I could endure
If I let him walk away
When I have so much to say

Tell him
Tell him that the sun and moon
Rise in his eyes
Reach out to him

And whisper
Tender words so soft and sweet
Hold him close to feel his heart beat
Love will be the gift you give yourself

Love is light that surely glows
In the hearts of those who know
It’s a steady flame that grows
Feed the fire with all the passion you can show
Tonight love will assume its place
This memory time cannot erase
Your faith will lead love where it has to go

Tell him
Tell him that the sun and moon
Rise in his eyes
Reach out to him

And whisper
Whisper words so soft and sweet
Hold him close to feel his heart beat
Love will be the gift you give yourself

Ooh
Never let him go
