In just a couple of minutes, a true star had been born. What made this feat all the more remarkable was the fact that Connie Talbot was just six years old.

Connie was born November 20th, 2000. She currently attends private  school in her hometown near Birmingham, England. Connie lives with her mother Sharon, her father Gavin, and her older siblings, brother Josh and sister Mollie.

Connie began to sing “as soon as she could talk” and she spent many hours with her grandmother Violet (who was very ill at the time) watching the film The Wizard Of OZ repeatedly and singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow together.

Since then, Connie has become an international phenomenon, with appearances all around the globe. She has accumulated millions upon millions of YouTube views and has garnered glowing media attention.
