Stay employed - impersonate everybody H/T @joshhaley

Josh Haley recently shared a rather scary picture of Celine Dion with a microphone in one hand and a pointing finger on the other.

Except that the picture was not of Celine Dion. The picture was of a Celine impersonator named Gypsy Miller. Follow the link to see the picture, and what Gypsy/Celine can do:

Gypsy Miller performs all Celine Dion's hits,all in the original keys - no lip-synching! Her between song speaking voice, her moves, gestures, and attitude, as well as her ability to sing in both French and English make this one of the most amazing Celine impersonations ever seen.

But Miller does not merely rely on her ability to portray Celine Dion. She can also portray Cher:

Gypsy Miller's Cher Show is a high-energy performance that includes hits from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 00’s as well as plenty of audience participation. She captures the voice, mannerisms, humor, and the spirit of Cher perfectly.

I wonder if she ever switches costumes during a performance so that she can portray both artists. A medley of "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves" and "My Heart Will Go On" would make for an interesting show.

But Miller does not merely rely on her ability to portray Celine Dion and Cher. No, she has one more trick up her sleeve:

The term EllaVis was first coined to describe Gypsy Miller’s pioneering performance of Elvis "had he been born a woman".

Yes, Gypsy portrays a female Elvis impersonator, complete with jumpsuit or leather as needed.

The advantage of this is that no matter what happens to musical tastes in the future, Miller will probably be able to find work.

To see all three impersonations, see this video.

I found this video via Yes, apparently "Gypsy Miller" is a character also.

One more Celine video:

And no, that wasn't Gene and Paul - that was Destroyer.
