Few things are more enticing in this world than the idea of following your dreams. Unfortunately, there are also few things scarier than this, and for a singer, going A-Capella is the most frightening thing you can do. Bent on pursuing her dream career, that is exactly what this single mom did!

In her audition for The X-Factor, Denise Weeks decides to take the leap she’s been avoiding for decades! She opens the audition with the Whitney Houston cover of George Benson’s The Greatest Love of All, doing a fair job. Until Simon throws a hand up after a few seconds, and she’s left fighting back tears.

Rather than just telling her to hit the road, Simon took notice of her potential, and asked her to sing A-Capella so her emotion could come through. Boy, did he really pop a lid there! Denise immediately gathered herself together to give the power ballad another shot.

Little did Simon know, he unleashed a vocal beast in the 41 year old singer. Drawing on inspiration from her life of hard work and precious memories, Denise reaches into her own depths and pulls off a performance that would have had Whitney herself in tears!

It’s rare that someone so humble can throw their head back and let the world hear the yearning in their soul. It’ll send chills down your spine when you hear her meet Simon’s demand with strength and grace! Continue to the next page to catch this epic moment!

Cover bands are the best! Everyone has a song that they love so much, they want to hear as many versions of it as possible, as long as it’s performed flawlessly, of course! One thing you never see though, is a cover band trying to nail an international hit using kid’s toys.

What makes a cover band truly amazing, is when they can introduce a new spin to a beloved jam without ruining it entirely. It takes more talent than you’d think, and this cover band has insane amounts of it!

Walk Off The Earth is a four piece ensemble that hails from Burlington, Ontario in Canada. Formed in 2006, they first received widespread recognition in 2012 when their cover of  Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know, went viral with over 175 million hits in just 4 months. It gets even better though!

The band found their niche in cover songs.  Many of their videos have exploded on YouTube, going viral with over several million views each, at least.  What makes them so unique, and popular, is the instruments they use to recreate their covered classics.

Using nothing more than some silverware, seashells, and children’s toys, this crazy quartet recreates a studio quality cover of Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You. You won’t believe what you’re seeing! Continue to the next page and be amazed!

There’s something magical about a duet! One talented person alone is entertaining, but when paired with an equally talented partner, they become sensational! This is what the darling 11-yr-old duo, Jadyn Rylee, and Brayden Ryle, are experiencing first hand!

Talk about star-crossed; these two are so in tune with each other, their names are almost identical! Not to mention their sheer talent. Though their fame as a duet is newfound, both of these youngsters know what it’s like to go viral.

The dynamic duo have both released solo videos that have gone viral, with over several million views. Usually, a person is considered incredibly lucky to have a video go viral. Well, Jayden & Brayden have both had their solo releases go viral multiple times!

Considering these guys are YouTube hall-of-famers, it’s no great surprise that their video went viral. What’s amazing is that this song is an original piece written by the two 11-yr-old singers. So brimming with intellect and deep-rooted emotion, it’s downright uncanny coming from a couple of kids.

Their talent is beyond words! You really just have to hear for yourself. Continue to the next page to hear their unbelievably beautiful song, and tell us what you think in the comments below. 

It’s a well known fact that people aren’t always what  they seem. They can seem dull and shock you in a moment of spontaneity, or appear excitingly vivacious only to put you to sleep when they speak. Then there are times when you have no idea what to expect, like when this bizarre singer took the stage.

Julia Ivanova is 29 years old, and she knows what she’s made of. Auditioning for Ukraine’s X-Factor, the strange girl strutted to the mic dressed like a disco-loving version of Blood Rayne. The crowd’s snickering aside though, she went on to shock the audience with more than just her looks!

It’s hard for a person to stand on a stage and bare their entire personality to the audience. In fact, the majority of people crumble when faced with being under public scrutiny. Can you imagine singing?!

The bizarre young performer knows she is made of different stuff, though. Seeming to draw strength from the doubt of the crowd, Julia’s voice only grows stronger as she commands the audience’s attention with her stage presence.

Meet The 5 Year Old Genius Raphael!

Often touted as the “Memory Extraordinaire”, Raphael Nselel is a 5 year old genius who can sit down and tell you everything you don’t remember from your education, and he does it with ease. What’s more amazing? He can tell you in multiple languages! Get ready to sign up to go back to school, because this kid will make you want to re-educate yourself!

Raphael is from Melbourne, Australia, and like I said, he is only 5 years old. Five! I could barely remember my own address at that age, but not him. Raphael has what’s called a photographic memory. To hear him tell it, he remembers so much by “taking photos and sending them to my brain so I can remember.” Simply put, but apparently very effective.

Raphael is so gifted, he started teaching himself how to read at the ripe old age of 3! At that same time, he was only interested in playing games that involved trying to memorize everything he saw! This is how he taught himself the periodic table of elements in five days, at only 4 years old!

Can you believe that talent?! No wonder this kid made the cut out of thousands that auditioned for the show Little Big Shots, Australia! He won and rightly so. This little kid is absolutely extraordinary!

You’ll be left scratching your head when you see the video clip from LBS! Continue to the next page to see proof that genius has no age limit!
