This emotional performance on BGT 2020 will hit you right in the feels as this choir, called Sign With Us, performs the sing-along song This Is Me with singing and sign-language. And, guess what? It was a Golden Buzzer performance!
Siblings, Jade (18) and Christian (4) take the stage in Britain's Got Talent (BGT) 2020 with a heartwarming story that immediately captured the judges, and audience, attention.
When Christian was born, the doctors said he would never be able to communicate due to his severe disability. His older sister, Jade, refused to accept this and learned sign language to communicate with him. She soon started a class to teach others with similar challenges and was surprised by the interest.
They then started a choir called Sign With Us, which now boasts 37 kids and 28 adults, from four- to 58-years-old, all of which took to the BGT 2020 stage to perform an emotional rendition of This Is Me, a song about acceptance.
With a crack in her voice and tears streaming down her face, Judge Amanda Holden said, "That song is such an anthem for people who maybe don’t feel part of the world or part of anything, and I just found it really, really moving. That was absolutely brilliant."
Alesha Dixon added, "I genuinely can't find the words," before an audience member shouts out "Amazing!". Dixon continues, saying "There you go... And, Christian, you are an absolute little star, so thank you."
It's then the turn of a clearly impressed Simon Cowell, who said, "I have to confess, I have a friend of mine in this choir. Ella," a 12-year-old winner of Pride Of Britain 2019. Cowell continued, "I heard Ella sing and said, 'One day I have a feeling you’re going to be auditioning in one of our shows', and guess what? You’re here. You’re saying, this is me, but I'm thinking, this is us. This is what Britain’s Got Talent should be all about. This is an audition I will never forget."
All eyes then turn to David Williams, who admitted that "Every one of you gave everything to this performance, an amazing, positive message to put out there and, um, all I can say is..." before smashing the BGT 2020 Golden Buzzer for the first time this season.
Needless to say, the crowd erupted in tears of joy and whoops. Even presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly joined in the celebrations, making glitter angels on stage in the golden confetti.
It's performances like this, by people who face tougher challenges every day than most of us, that are the pride of humanity. If this video doesn't bring a tear to your eye, then you have no soul!
