Two 13-Year OId Girls Singing on AGT & an 88-Year Old Grandpa Winning BGT
My friend excitedly told his family about 3 performers. They were all entertaining and inspirational.
One was a 13-year old girl who came on stage nervous, and barely able to talk. But when Laura Bretan began to sing “Nessun Dorma”, Pavarotti would have been proud. Rather than try to describe the beauty and soul-stirring singing of this unique gift from God, see & listen for yourself.
The Judges were stunned, euphoric, and unanimous in gushing praise.
Simon: “You came on stage like a jelly. But then, that just happened. I didn’t hear anything like that in all the years I’ve been doing this show. Seriously.”
Heidi Klum: “You were born with such a gift. It’s unbelievable. I couldn’t stop smiling.”
Mel B.: “You made all the hairs (on my arms) stand on end. You changed our lives.”
Howie Mandel: “OMG.” And at the Finals he said, “Everyone can see & hear your talent. But I don’t know if the people at home can feel your immense heart, like we feel it here, in person.”
Please listen to the equivalent of the US “Voice”: Vocea Romanei Junior – Finals (Laura Bretan – “I Dreamed a Dream”). You will see, hear, and feel the Peace & Joy of her companionship with God.
Darci Lynne Farmer, the other 13-year old girl won AGT, but as a ventriloquist singing through a puppet. The 4 Judges’ reactions were equally enthusiastic, and marveled at her skill to sing through a rabbit.
Please listen: Darci Lynne Farmer all AGT auditions and performances. Some of the Judges’ comments of her performance at the “Finals” were:
Simon: “Wow. Wow. Wow. Darci. Singing opera is very difficult. And you just did it singing though a rabbit. You have a chance to win this thing.”
Mel B.: “You absolutely have a chance to win. You deserve it, and much, much more.”
Howie: “You continue to surprise. You sang difficult songs, with different puppets thru the audition process: A duet, and now opera. You can win.”
Please listen: “Grandpa wins BGT 2019. An 88-year old grandpa & retired British soldier (Colin Thackery) sang a tribute to his deceased wife. After his 1st audition, a chorus of other old, retired soldiers accompanied the rest of his tribute performances. Colin won BGT. More important than the audiences’ standing ovations, the Judges’ genuine accolades, and the honoring salutes of current British soldiers, were the heart-felt “Congratulations of the Runner-Up”: “To someone like Colin, who gave his life to us: I bow to him. He deserves to win. I love the man.”
The common denominators of All 3 inspiring performers were: An Incredible God-given talent, a life-changing connection with the audience, while being a sweet person with genuine humility. Certainly, God was smiling at the 3 wonderful expressions of the extraordinary talent that He bestowed on them.
If someone doesn’t have a tear in their eye after watching those 3 perform, they need a heart transplant.
