Michael Rice may only be 19. But the talented teen won the BBC talent competition, All Together Now, after his inspirational music performance of ‘Hallelujah’ had the entire crowd on its feet!
19-year-old Michael Rice was a contestant on the first season of All Together Now. This BBC show features a panel of 100 judges from the United Kingdom. Each one has some kind of expertise in the music industry.
When a singer performs, any member of the panel can "vote" for the artist by turning on their light. The contestant with the highest number of lights from that round moves on in the competition.
In his very first performance, Michael Rice earned a perfect score with his impressive rendition of ‘Proud Mary’. His talent and charisma quickly saw him through the next two rounds to become a finalist.
Making it to the final round is an impressive feat all on its own. But Michael wasn’t done yet. The talented teen pulled out all the stops with his powerful performance of ‘Hallelujah’.
