It took Christopher Maloney five very long years to get the courage to show off his talent to the world back in 2012. Just thinking about getting up in front of an audience made Christopher sick and nervous. How would he perform in front of millions if he couldn’t even do it for family and friends? However, Christopher practiced for hours and hours and was able to pull off an amazing song.
When you see his incredible performance, you will see why his video went viral!
Christopher decided to choose a song that he knew would win over the judges if he nailed it. Instead of an easy tune, he picked “The Rose” by Bette Midler. Christopher was aware that this song wouldn’t be easy to pull off. He would have to do it perfectly to win the picky judges of The X Factor over. That is exactly what he did! He belted out Bette’s emotional words to the audience in the studio and at home. The judges quickly realized they were watching a man with true talent perform in front of them. Christopher had a voice and stage presence that could make him a star.
Christopher quickly overcame his stage-fright once and for all when he stood in front of the judges. The hit track that he had picked out to sing was the right one – they could clearly hear that he had talent. His performance reminded us that you can always overcome your fears and do what you really want to do! Don’t ever waste your time slaving away at a job or hobby that only makes you miserable when you really wish to do something else. Christopher has shown us that dreams can come true.
