She went viral as ‘the subway singer’. Her performance on Ellen is giving Twitter the chills
Until a few days ago, Charlotte Awbery was a typical Londoner minding the gap of her own business between the train and the platform, trying to catch the Tube when comedian Kevin Freshwater asked her to ‘finish the lyrics’ of Lady Gaga’s Oscar-winning song Shallow. And suddenly, a star was born. Since then, Charlotte Awbery has taken the Internet by storm. Many wished for a longer performance by Awbery and thanks to Ellen, the wish has been granted. Awbery recently appeared on The Ellen Show and a video of her performance has stunned netizens.
It was this video by Kevin Freshwater that catapulted Charlotte Awbery into viral fame:
Yeah, we felt it too…
Awbery, a professional wedding singer, became an overnight star. And even got an invite from Ellen DeGeneres to appear on her show. Now, Awbery’s Ellen performance is going viral. What’s more, she got some wonderful gifts on the show too.
So not only is Awbery’s Instagram following increasing, she now has a free year-long travel tube pass and £10,000 (approximately Rs 9.2 lakh).
Meanwhile, here are some of Twitter’s most wholesome reactions to the wedding singer’s rise to fame:
This isn’t the first time a singer has been discovered on the subway. In October 2019, Emily Zamourka, 52, also went crazy viral all over the Internet after singing opera in the Los Angeles metro.
