Six-year-old Connie Talbot is a singer whose flawless voice and powerful presence are the product of practice and passion. At this young age, she has had no professional training. No one but her parents expected her to produce such pristine sound and effortless vocals as she sang ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow.’
In a performance that brought tears to the eyes Amanda Holden, Connie Talbot stunned us all. Her innocence imbues her voice with an honest and overwhelming quality that carries across into each word sung. It is as if young Connie understands the deepest meaning of her beautiful song.
Just when you think that everything is okay, a quiver of uncertainty looks like it is about to rear its head when Simon Cowell starts to say that he is going to speak to Connie like an adult. Not even this apparent show of controversy shakes our little star, handling the situation like a professional.
As it turns out, Simon was only playing the fool, presenting her with striking praise, calling her “fantastic.” The only question that he was left with was whether it was really the tiny star before him who had sung this song. With the whole panel and entire audience hall firmly on her side, Connie progressed to the next round of BGT.
Her Britain’s Got Talent journey rewarded the world with a voice whose maturity, presence, and range amazed over and over. Her audition featuring the timeless song ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ shows us that talent knows no age, as this six-year-old singer produced a rendition that sounds sent from heaven.
