We can all take a lesson from this incredible little boy; he teaches us that we should have no shame in who we are and to be proud of our uniqueness. He’s a 12-year-old singer named Reuben de Maid from Cardiff, UK and he was once bullied for being who he is.

Reuben is from the Llandaff district in Cardiff and loves being in the spotlight. He has a huge personality, loves wearing makeup, and gets a thrill from being on stage.

Reuben caught the attention of Ellen Degeneres and she absolutely fell in love with the talented young singer. We can’t blame her one bit — his voice is incredible.

“I absolutely love this kid from Wales – his voice, his character, his uniqueness, all of it,” Ellen said on her Facebook page.

Ellen invited Reuben to be a guest on her popular talk show; of course, he accepted. The 12-year-old performed a beautiful cover of the remarkable song “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going” from the movie Dreamgirls.

Not only is his performance absolutely breathtaking, but the interview that Ellen does with him afterward is worth watching. He has quite the personality and speaks about the days when he was bullied for being who he is.

Read On to watch Reuben’s memorable performance and his sweet interview with Ellen Degeneres. This kid is so talented!

Who doesn’t know Simon Cowell?! The English reality TV celebrity is one to be feared especially if he’s going to be auditioning you! But this 80 year old thought otherwise.

Famous for his quote, “If your lifeguard duties were as good as your singing, a lot of people would be drowning,” Simon Cowell really does make some people cry on the stage! Then in 2009 a contestant called Cheryl Cole came up with a statement calling Simon Cowell ‘nasty, rude and annoying‘!

Well, we’ve all seen the way he acts on stage and how he can irk people, but then came 80 year old Janey Cutler, a mother of seven, to audition for Britain’s Got Talent, in front of Simon Cowell. Nobody expected anything from this 80 year old, but within moments they were shocked! She sang “No Regrets” and proved the fact that you’re never too old to follow your dreams!

In the video below she was quoted saying, “I like singing…I’ve got a great life, seven kids…” When she entered, Simon, who was left confused, asked how she was and she just replied, “Fine!

When he asked her why she came to audition for this show she said, “Well, I like singing so my friends say go for it!” The best part comes when Simon Cowell asks her how many years she waited to do this!

In almost every town you’re likely to find a music shop. The go-to place for instruments, guitar strings, and sheet music. Generally, people who shop in these types of stores have a shared passion for music. And sometimes these people team up for an epic impromptu performance.

A video that was recently filmed in a music store in New York has quickly gone viral. Since it was posted, it has been viewed over 17 million times and it’s all because of 13-year-old Brendan McFarlane. At such a young age, he has talent that most of us can only dream about!

Brendan walked into the music shop in New York, it was Dan’s Chelsea Guitars and it was a day just like any other. Brendan is a young Scottish singer who was browsing the store for inspiration.

It wasn’t long until a store employee began strumming a guitar and Brendan was immediately drawn to its melodic rhythm and strumming. He approached the man playing guitar and the camera began to film.

This is one of my all-time favorite American Idol stories! The courage that Shayy shows is truly inspiring!

From Billboard.com:

Countless American Idol hopefuls come to their auditions with inspiring back stories, but Shayy’s was a particularly emotional moment on Wednesday’s (Mar. 6) episode of the singing competition.

Shayy told judges that she has been legally blind for a little over a year, after suffering from hydrocephalus and the discovery of a tumor in her brain. She then dove into a powerful cover of Andra Day’s “Rise Up,” which immediately brought the judges to tears, especially Lionel Richie.

“You have wrecked me,” he told her, red faced from crying. “Lionel you look like you’re walking a daughter down the aisle,” Luke Bryan commented, before telling Shayy, “You have what we cannot teach. We cannot teach letting the music flow straight from the soul, and that’s what you did.”

As expected, the judges made the unanimous decision to send Shayy to the Hollywood round.
