Maxwell Thorpe knocks judges off their feet with his incredible voice

Maxwell Thorpe

You will see a hidden talent that comes out of their shell every now and then. Maxwell Thorpe is one of the budding stars who spent years singing on the streets for people passing by when he should have been making millions on a stage. His audition on Britain’s Got Talent absolutely stunned the audience and the four judges as he sang “Caruso” for their entertainment.

Maxwell is a 32-year-old opera singer that grew up as a busker. A busker is a street performer who makes a living entertaining people on the streets, relying on money from those who feel like donating a few bucks. Of course, some performers make more than others, and some do not make enough to ever get off the streets. That is, of course, if they ever want to.

Performing on the streets of any city throughout the world is a freedom that most of us do not have. You can make your own hours and days, and if you feel like going for a swim instead of working, you can. It is a simple life for simple people that do not want to be tied down with a traditional job.

As a general rule, most buskers do not ever get recognized by people that can bring their talents to the forefront of the public eye. That is where shows like BGT come in. They offer a way for anyone with a bit of skill to sing an opportunity to be heard. And if they are as good as they think they are, they will be pushed forward into the finals.

Even if they do not reach the finals, their names are out there for recruiters to consider once they have appeared in public. Even if the judges do not think they are the best in the contest, others may feel that they have some potential and offer them a contract. For some people, it is the only way that they will ever be given a shot at immortality.

Maxwell Thorpe, singing his rendition of “Caruso,” became one of those buskers that decided to try and take their songs to the next level. It is a good thing that he did because he received a standing ovation from the people in the stands at the BGT auditions. Maxwell is an icon that many street performers worldwide will look up to, and they will try to follow in his footsteps.
