During the BBC “Young Chorister of the Year,” you will hear one of the most beautiful singing you have ever heard. Cormac Thompson, a well-known teenage singer, competed in the semifinals.
At the age of 12, Cormac submitted an application for Series 15 of “Britain’s Got Talent.” He resides in Northern Ireland’s Lancashire. Cormac performs “Ave Maria” in the BBC competition.
Every year, Radio 2 and BBC Songs of Praise hold the competition. It is televised from Salisbury Cathedral, a magnificent building. In Salisbury, England, the stunning church was once known as the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Cormac is accompanied just by a piano during the audition, which takes place on a tastefully decorated stage. Cormac is positioned in the middle of the church’s altar while donning a chorister robe.
He sings with a youthful voice that moves hearts and delivers lovely sustained notes. When the song ends with roaring acclaim, the judges and crowd applaud him.
When the judges inquire how it felt, Cormac replies that it was a lot of fun. “There was a bell-like purity to the way you sang, Cormac,” one of the judges remarks.
And what surprised me was that, while I thought you produced a lovely sound for the pianos and mezzo-pianos, you actually had a tremendous amount of power rising to the top half of the piano, Maria. This, in my opinion, caught everyone in this room off guard.
The judges were all awed and extremely astonished by Cormac’s flawless performance. Even his own record, entitled “Hear My Voice,” was created by this young artist. Cormac is an incredible young talent and a rising star.
