Diva Dance - opera singer Inva Mula-Çako's artifically extended octave range from the Luc Besson movie The Fifth Element (05:00), watch out for the changeover from 03:25:

Inva Mula - Wikipedia

In the film The Fifth Element (released 1997) she performed an aria from Donnizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor (the mad scene), and "The Diva Dance" song. Director Luc Besson adored Maria Callas, but her 1950s recording of "Lucia" wasn't clear enough to use on a film soundtrack, so the producer who had just helped Mula record La Rondine introduced her to Besson. Plavalaguna's vocalizations seem beyond physical possibility and, according to Patrice Ledoux (Producer) in the special feature "An Audience with Diva Plavalaguna", it was altered in a sound studio to open the octave range from two to four-and-a-half.
