This week we’re sharing a clip that was so inspirational that it actually brought an entire arena as well as Simon Cowell to his feet…and even got him to push his Golden Buzzer for Bars & Melody on Britain’s Got Talent.
15 year old Charlie Lenehan and 13 year old Leondre Devries, otherwise known as Bars & Melody, recently auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent – and what they did was incredible. Their message was extremely powerful for being so young. The two boys sang and rapped about bullying from personal experience. Leondre explained that he was bullied when he was younger and he would cope with it by writing it down in raps. What came of it was something incredible!
Simon Cowell, the toughest critic of them all, pushed his “golden buzzer” for them – signifying that the duo would be his one and only choice of the entire competition to be able to go directly to the semi-finals. The crowd went wild and members of the audience were in tears. It just goes to show that once you overcome a personal challenge, it’s important to look back and take a lesson from it. Check out Bars & Melody’s version of “Hopeful” (originally by Twista featuring Faith Evans).
