It’s wonderful to see someone who appears to be a genuinely nice person on one of the Got Talent shows turn out to be someone who also has a lot of talent. That’s exactly what you’ll see in this video.

Tom Ball is a 23-year-old secondary school teacher in West Sussex, England. He dreams of being a singer but didn’t tell anyone at the school where he teaches that he was auditioning for Britain’s Got Talent–because he didn’t want to disappoint them in case he didn’t do well.

“The kids don’t know I’m here.” he said. “I wanted it to be a surprise.” He also said most of the kids don’t even know he can sing.

But once he starts singing Sam Smith’s “Writing’s On the Wall,” it’s clear that Tom is not going to be able to keep this a secret from the kids any longer. The judges and audience are blown away by his clear voice and they are all on their feet by the time he finishes.
