The global sensation Got Talent shows have touched millions of lives all over the world with their many stories of inspiration about never giving up.
Even when faced with extraordinary adversity like Britain’s Got Talent Susan Boyle, who rose to worldwide fame after appearing on the hit show in 2009. Before shocking the world with her rendition of “I Dreamed A Dream” from Les Misérables, Boyle was a “spinster” who led a quiet life singing in her church.
During the summer of 2017, North America met and fell in awe of Mandy Harvey, a brilliant singer-songwriter who dreamt her entire life of being a professional singer.
Unfortunately, Mandy’s dreams were put on hold when she lost her hearing at the age of 19 as a result of the connective tissues disorder Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
Mandy wowed the world with her flawless audition and was sent straight through to America’s Got Talent finals, thanks to the Golden Buzzer.
Neither Boyle or Harvey won either of the seasons they appeared on of the talent competition, but no one is keeping score. What both ladies – and many, many more people who have appeared on one of the Got Talent versions across the globe – will be remembered for was their talent and their strength through overcoming odds.
Florent Devlesaver is the latest superstar to be featured on the talent comp franchise who didn’t let anything stop him from following his dreams. Florent wanted to be a dancer and practiced hard throughout his life. When he was a teenager, he even gained some notoriety for proficiency on the dance floor.
After a tragic accident left Florent paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair, Florent was even more determined to make his dream come true.
