Young age does not mean less talent. And this teen proves this fact to the entire crowd of Britain’s Got Talent. Simon tells her that her song choice, “And I Am Telling You” from the musical Dreamgirls, is one of the hardest songs to sing. They thought this young lady couldn’t nail the song, now watch how strongly she proves everyone wrong.
Since the original version on Broadway, the song has been known as a powerhouse ballad. And when Jennifer Hudson sang it in the movie Dreamgirls, she defined a new standard that, at least in Simon’s mind, was hard to live up to.
But no one could guess the amount of talent Sarah Ikumu was hiding. She sweeps the skeptical judges off their feet. Simon, the strictest judge of the show, became particularly interested to know if the girl can hit the powerful notes. And her vocal skills end up being unbelievable. Along with having a glorious voice, she even has raw emotion to complement the song. And the crowd couldn’t get enough of this rare talent they saw right in front of them.
It is heartwarming to see the judges shower this young girl with compliments and well earned praise. But Simon gives her the highest honor by saying, “I have heard that song loads, but you nailed it, you made it yours!” He even goes on to give her the Golden Buzzer, and it’s the highest honor of the show. Even the crowd erupts into cheers for this teen.
