There is something special and unique in every person. It is the particular blessing each individual brings with him or her to this world. Sometimes it is an incredible talent that will leave others speechless.

Talent shows everywhere prove that ordinary people coming from all walks of life can have unbelievable abilities to perform in ways that never cease to amaze judges and spectators alike. That is the secret behind the unmatched success of this shows on TV.
That was the case for 13-year-old Abu, from Belgium, who mesmerized a crowd and jury with a beautiful performance that was far from what anybody expected for a talent show audition.
Abu stepped on stage for a blind audition for The Voice Kids Belgium, visibly nervous and shy. His unconfident appearance and behavior made the audience curious about how he was going to sound.
When the music started to play and the public recognized the extremely popular and challenging tune to sing the boy had picked, they thought they were in for a potential disaster.
Abu had picked the big hit My Heart Will Go On, by Celine Dion, which took the singer to the top of the charts after being featured in the film Titanic. It seemed a very bad idea of a song to sing for such a timid performer. It didn’t take him long to prove them wrong.
Just as Abu started singing the emotionally charged song, judged Josje Huisman and Laura Tesoro couldn’t help but smile widely, surprised and delighted by the boy’s intense performance.
Abu was just a few lines into the song when all three judges hit their buzzers in approbation. When their chairs turned around, they could hardly believe that this sweet shy child was the one singing like that.
The excited audience stood up in a loud applause and ovation and Abu wasn’t even halfway through the song. Once he proved he was in his element, nothing broke his concentration and he continued blowing everybody’s mind with his voice.
