Think back to when you were a child. Were you focused on making a career for yourself? Or was your attention planted solely on toys, cooties, snacks, and adventuring outside? Well, if you’re this little boy, every fiber of your being has been dedicated to making it big in the music industry.
For months, he’s practiced for this moment and gone over every detail in his head. Now it’s time to make it happen!
When adorable seven-year-old Shaney-Lee stepped onto Britain’s “The Voice,” he instantly won the audience’s heart with his charm. In true cowboy spirit, the little country boy arrived at his audition by horse – leaving a permanent impression on the already won-over crowd.
Described by his mother as an “old man in a little person’s body,” Shaney clutched the mic as he prepared to blow the panel of judges away. Mom couldn’t help but tear up as she watched her little boy walk bravely across the stage and stand before the unwavering panel.
Would they love her son’s sound? Or would the send him packing on the horse and buggy on which he arrived? Her heart flipped in her chest as he got ready to show the judges the fruit of his hard work, dedication, and practice.
From the very first note, the crowd went absolutely wild. The judges couldn’t hide the smiles spreading across their faces – exchanging looks of surprise as they took in the little boy’s sound. Not only was his country “twang” adorable, but his strong stage presence was just as impressive!
Shaney belted out a precious rendition of John Denver’s “Take Me Home,” and the crowd couldn’t stop cheering and smiling.
It was clear to everyone that Shaney was meant to be a country singing superstar!
Moving around a bit to the beat, he crooned out the famous lyrics during an unbelievable performance fans won’t soon forget. By the time he sang the final note, his dad was in tears and the audience members were on their feet.
Despite his young age and lack of formal experience, Shaney is obviously a force to be reckoned with.
We can’t wait to see what Shaney does with his skill in the years to come! We know, deep down in our hearts, that he will go far.
