Christopher Maloney has wanted to sing on X Factor UK for over 5 years and he filled-out the application every year but ended up throwing it into the trash every time. His 76-year-old grandmother convinced him to audition and he decided to go for it.
He sang Bette Midler’s ‘The Rose’ and the audience couldn’t hold back their tears as he impressed them all with his voice. You can see his reaction and how his confidence level skyrocketed as the audience cheered him on.
The main reason that Maloney never performed is because people told him he would embarrass himself and this made him lose confidence in himself. This is a great example of believing in yourself and blocking out the haters. If you want something in life, just go after it!
