12-Yr-Old Shocks Judges by Belting Out Power Ballad ‘Because Of You’

“Because of You” is what’s known as a power ballad because it is both emotionally charged and has a number of hard-hitting bars that the singer has to “belt out.” It was originally written by singer and American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson when she was 16 years old to help her cope with her parents divorce. Clarkson polished the song with producers David Hodges and Ben Moody before it was ultimately included on one of her albums.

We don’t generally associate power ballads with pre-teen boys like this one, Ronan Parke. He came to “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2011. Needless to say, he has the voice of an angel but again, not necessarily one we would say is naturally included to power ballads.

Ronan was only 12 years old when he sang this song and tell you what, he does not even sound his age. It would be safe to say that the boy is more than just good to be singing so well for his age.

This is one of the best performances by a 12-year-old I have ever seen on the internet and it will surely be one of the best you have seen too. This is amazing. Watch the full video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
