Golden Buzzer Candidate Kyle Tomlinson Proves David Williams Wrong in His Rendition of “Hallelujah”

Kyle Tomlinson + Hallelujah

In 2017, Kyle Tomlinson, a fifteen-year-old kid, sang the high notes of the hit gospel song “Hallelujah” effortlessly with passion during his audition for Britain’s Got Talent Season 11 and shocked the audience and the judges, especially David Williams. 

If you aren’t familiar with the story, during a brief interview before his performance, Kyle did mention that he joined the show to prove David Williams wrong since a few years back, David once told him he needed a vocal coach to improve.
