Sarah Ikumu stepped onstage at Britain’s Got Talent unassuming, humble and “hoping for the best.”
The daughter of Kenyan immigrants, Sarah started singing in her father’s church choir at the age of 5. At her big debut, her parents were there to cheer their daughter on.
Sarah announced she wanted to sing Jennifer Hudson’s epic ballad “You’re Gonna Love Me”. Simon showed immediate distaste for her song choice, but allowed her to continue, and off she went. Words honestly can’t describe what Simon and the rest witnessed next.
Sarah singlehandedly took on of the most difficult songs in history, and not only nailed it, but made it her own.
The 15-year-old started performing with a control, maturity, and musicality reserved for the great performers through history.
Simon, transfixed, immediately pushed the golden buzzer.
It would be cruel to make you wait any longer to watch Sarah’s epic golden buzzer performance!
Watch the incredible performance below, and don’t forget to share the awesomeness of this talented young woman.
