NEIL FULLARD AUDITION: COME FLY WITH ME
I love shows like Britain’s Got Talent because every so often somebody unexpected emerges from the shadows of obscurity to shock the world with their talent. Neil Fullard was a forty-two-year-old club bouncer who had never sung in public when he auditioned in 2010. Yet the moment he began singing, I thought, Whoa. This guy would fit right in with the Rat Pack. Imagine if Frank Sinatra had kept his talent to himself and lived an ordinary life before finally working up the nerve in his forties to sing in public.
Sure, Neil’s talent is pretty raw and his performance skills were minimal, but it was nice to see him get a chance to perform in a professional setting in the semifinals.
NEIL FULLARD SEMIFINAL: THAT’S LIFE
Neil is now living his dream and performing as “The Singing Doorman” wherever he can get gigs. More power to him! I love seeing people following their heart and living their dreams whether they’re forty-two or eighty-two. Bravo, Neil!
