What Happens When This 16-Year-Old Takes The Stage, Stuns Everyone

I’ve got a confession to make. It’s something I’ve never told anyone before. In fact, I don’t think I even really admitted it to myself until very recently. But today seems like just as good a day as any to throw caution to the wind and confess that…

Secretly, I’m timid.

This statement will come as a surprise to my friends and family, I’m sure. In fact, a friend of mine told me recently that she’s always been inspired by how outgoing and fearless I am. If only… but no.

I’ve been able to hide my affliction for close to 3 decades now… mostly by painfully overcompensating. In high school, it seemed ok to be shy. A lot of teenagers are shy, right? I assumed that my shyness was something I’d eventually outgrow. But that didn’t happen.

Not only am I super shy, I also have completely incapacitating stage fight. Marilyn Manson has said that performing actually helps him overcome his shyness. But just the thought of being on stage or talking in front of a large group of people… and I break out in a cold sweat.

My personal struggle against shyness made what Isaac Waddington did recently on Britain’s Got Talent all the more bewitching.

But even if you’re an outgoing person who’s comfortable being the center of attention, his beautiful and heartfelt rendition of Billy Joel’s “She’s Always A Woman” is sure to move you. Check it out below.
