15-year-old Kenyan, Sarah Ikumu is a contestant on the show Britain’s Got Talent in the recent auditions held in April 2017. The youngster, only a schoolgirl from the British suburbs of Milton Keynes, wowed the crowd and even had the judges in utter shock over her overwhelming talent. Accompanied by her parents, Sarah mastered her nerves to deliver an epic performance that was deemed “quite incredible” by reality show judge Simon Cowell.
The teen took on the iconic track “And Am Telling You” previously performed by Jeniffer Hudson on the musical “Dream Girls” released in 2006. The judges bewildered by her talent, allowed the young soon-to-be-star to sing the whole song. Singing in the church choir and competing in local competitions including the Face of Kenya 2015 according to The Sun, Sarah’s career has only just began. Set to join other contestants in the reality show, Sarah got the “golden buzzer” on her first audition in the show with her performance.
Sarah is now set to sing on stage again at the semi-final. So far, Sarah is loving the great support she has received online taking to social media to share her appreciation.
I would like to say thank you to everyone for the support and the nice messages that I have received after my Britains Got Talent audition.
